Cleaning Your Garage - A Step-by-Step Plan - Declutter Your Life with Donna Smallin Kuper
Cleaning your garage can seem daunting, but with a solid plan, it’s much easier than it seems. Take a weekend with your family to sort the items in your garage into four categories: keep, sell, donate, and throw away. Sell, donate, and throw away the items you don’t need anymore. After this is done and you’re left with only the items you want to keep, then figure out how much space you need for your car. Finally, separate the items by their purpose and how often they’re used.
- More than half of people with two car garages keep too much stuff in their garages to actually put two vehicles in there.
- Set aside a large block of time specifically for cleaning your garage, and get some help from friends and family.
- If you haven’t used something in more than a year, get rid of it — don’t keep it around because you might use it someday.
“With a few simple organization ideas, tidying up your garage and keeping it neat and clean is not only possible, it’s very doable.”
