Many people have a garage but a lot of people who have a large garage don’t actually have room for their cars in them. Because of the ease of being able to put things in the garage and the feeling of out of sight out of mind, it doesn’t take long for a garage to become cluttered – this means you may have a lot of space that you are wasting that could be of use to you in your home.
To have a really good garage declutter, you need to spend some time on it. Dedicate a day or a weekend if the garage is particularly full to doing this. You can get the whole family involved or some friends to speed it up a bit!
When you go through the items that you have there, be honest with yourself -do you need it anymore? Can it be used by anyone else or is it something that can be repaired? You will probably find that you can sell or donate a lot of the items that you have, and some may need to go to the tip.
Before you start putting items back into your garage think about how you can use storage in a smarter way. Look for companies such as Rackzone, a shelving Ireland based company who will have a range of garage storage options to choose from. Be creative with storage as well such as wall and ceiling mounted storage for larger items such as bikes.
