Garage organization is when you can’t find your weed eater, hammer, painting supplies or golf clubs, it’s time to act. Instead of wasting another second search for misplaced items in a rogue garage, get it organized. You can also find extra space for the garage workshop you always wanted.
PLAN OF ATTACK
Before physically moving objects from one random place in your garage to another, create a plan of attack to methodically organize the space. It will save time and effort for a long time. Define your garage by deciding how best to use the area for you and your family. You can also choose to create a place for the workshop or for other special activities, such as physical training, repairing cars or lounging. Transfer these measurements to a paper grid paper and draw a pencil sketch to the scale, using any graph block equal to 12 inches. Designate specific areas of the sketch for your predetermined needs.
Clear everything in your garage to help you sort and clear its contents. Start in a garage corner closest to your driveway and work your way towards the house. When you pick up each item, make an immediate decision on whether you want to keep the item or get rid of it. Place each item in one of four piles – hold, rubbish, donate or sell. Sort the objects in the keep pile into categories that contain similar items. For example, arrange the tools together, paint supplies in another bar and sports equipment in a separate group.
