Organize The Garage

Handyman Tips: Organize The Garage


Are you sick and tired of your garage mess?  You don't know where your tools are.  You cannot find your baseball glove.  Just looking at your garage give you anxiety.  Enough it enough!

Where Do You Start?

Handyman Tips: 7 Steps To A Clean Garage

1.) Schedule a pick-up from Goodwill or St. Vincent DePaul

Creating a deadline for this project will put the power of intention behind it.

2.)  Create a list of categories for your garage.  These categories could include:

  • Sports gear
  • Lawn and garden
  • Tools
  • Seasonal decorations
  • Cars and car gear

3.)  Pull all of your garage items out of the garage and sort them. 

During the sorting process, if there is an item that you haven't used in 3 years, you probably aren't going to use it.  Place these items in the donation pile.

4.)  Install metro shelving or shelving kits.

You can buy these kits at Home Depot, Lowes, Target, and Walmart.  They are easy to put together.  After assembly mark the items based on the categories you previously created.

5.)  Put your items in containers.

Segregate your items by subcategory.  For example, baseball mitts, balls, and bats should go in the "baseball" bin.  I like the clean plastic containers, but cardboard boxes work as well.  Also, label each container with masking tape.

6.)  Go vertical.

If you have exposed beams in your garage, you can put large items such as carpets and patio umbrellas.  Bicycles can be put up with large screw in hooks.  Getting these off the ground will really help remove clutter.

7.)  If you are struggling, hire a handyman to help.

Often we have an emotional connection to the "stuff" in our garage.  Also, organizing the garage can seem like a huge task, and it a paralyzes us. 

A handyman can help.  They do not have the same emotional attachment to these items.  Rather they are just looking to help you with your goal.
