Garage clutter is a monster that grows with every day you neglect to address it. Every day you don’t organize your garage, your excuses get worse, as those two things you left on the floor turn to twenty things and all of a sudden you can hardly tread your way through all the bulk to get to the door.
You’re not alone in these small everyday burdens of life. And they always seem to come and haunt you when you least expect it. This article is for those who have finally had enough and are ready to make moves. You can refer to this article to set you off in the right direction.
A common misstep is relying too much on cardboard boxes. The problem here is their durability. Cardboard does not stand the test of time like plastic. Plus, plastic containers can be hung from shelves that are installed either on the walls or ceiling and they will not fall apart as they collect dust.
Taking advantage of the ceiling is a great way to free up some space. That applies as much for hanging bikes as it does for hanging boxes. Buying a sturdy but affordable bike rack or installing a DIY set of ceiling shelves now will save you from a stressful Sunday cleaning next month.
As for the walls, the more vertical you make things, the easier they are to manage. Tossing all of your balls, bats, rackets, sports gear, etc. into a box eventually will pile up. It’s too easy to forget about things until they take up so much space that you’re forced to address them. By installing shelves on the walls, you’ll keep everything visible, which in turn will make it easier for you to know when the garage needs some tidying up before it gets out of hand.
There are literally hundreds of strategies for getting your garage looking the way you want it to. Home organization is like an investment. Handle your business now, because if you don’t, it’ll be much worse later.
