Life has many ironies. Just take the garage for example.
The garage is often considered as the biggest part of the house, and yet, it is the most disorganized portion. Maybe because its owners felt like they could put everything in the garage and keep the other areas clean and tidy.
The problem is, the garage is placed in that part of the house where most visitors would likely see it first.
Therefore, for those people who want to organize their garage because they know that they can no longer hide the monstrous condition of the place, here are some simple tips for organizing it. With these tips, one could surely be on his or her way to displaying it or even accepting visitors in the garage.
1. Clean it up!
The most important part in organizing a garage is cleaning. To do this, the homeowner must remove all the big things that are in disarray in the garage.
Try to sort out things. In this way, an individual can clearly identify which things are no longer needed and which are still important or useful.
2. Repair wall cracks.
In order to project an organized look, wall cracks should also be repaired. There are instances where some shelves or hanging cabinets might give in due to weak foundations or support.
Besides, wall cracks are unsightly displays in a garage. It will only make the clutter more unbearable.
3. Use some hooks.
It is best to hang items that just take up huge portions of the floor area. Things like rakes, shovels, lawn chairs, sleds, bikes, etc. should be kept hanging. It is best to use some sturdy hooks to do the job.
4. Items due for repairs should be repaired...NOW!
Things that are due for repairs should no longer stay in the garage for another week. The best thing to do is to put them in the car and bring them to the repair shop. Pronto!
5. People should learn how to give away gadgets that they cannot decide to keep or toss. Let someone else get good use out of it.
6. Throw out the obsolete. In fact, things that no longer have any use are those that clutter the garage the most.
Keep in mind that clutter is all about indecision. So, if a person does not know what to do with his or her things that are kept in the garage, it's high time they make decisions and get the garage well organized.
