Whether you need to clear out a corner or revamp the entire garage, it’s time to organize the space your car calls home.
Here’s how to get started.
• Set your priorities. Are you creating room to park a second car, store your outdoor gear, or add a workshop? Your end goal determines what you need to do.
• Sort through your stuff. Just as you would do with a closet, decide what you want to keep, what you can give away, and what should be recycled or discarded.
• Store items in zones based on your interests (e.g., gardening tools and supplies). Cabinets, shelves, pegboard, hooks, and labels will help you keep items organized and easy to find.
• Get rid of the junk. Make sure that items that should not go in the landfill (e.g., chemicals, tires) are disposed of in an appropriate manner.
