As an area of your home that can be easily avoided, garages are known for being an area that stuff piles up quickly. Before you know it, you no longer have space to park your cars. Between trash barrels and children’s scooters to landscape tools and sports gear, items that aren’t being used on a daily basis pile up quickly. Out of sight, out of mind. Take your garage back this spring by following these tips or hiring Elite Junk Removal & Demolition to do a complete garage cleanout for you.
Don’t Treat Your Garage as a Dumping Ground
Garages are an area of a home that have a large amount of space and don’t need to be utilized every day. If you’ve noticed it’s harder to fit your car in the garage or find yourself parking in the driveway more frequently, it’s time to reevaluate the issue: too much stuff. With the warm weather right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to do a deep clean. Pull all of your stuff out of the garage, sweep it clean, and only put back the items you need and donate the rest!
Have a “Home” for Everything
When you don’t have a designated area to store your things, clutter is bound to stack up. After cleaning your space, utilize various storage solutions and give each of your belongings a designated space to “live” in order to eliminate the potential for another mess.
Don’t Keep Items You Might Use
We all have a few items in our garage that we haven’t used in years but refuse to part with. By keeping these items, space is being taken up that would be better utilized for items you use on a more frequent basis. If it’s not a seasonal item (i.e. snowblower, lawn mower, shovels, etc.), donate it!
