3 Ways to Beat Garage Clutter

Spring time in Idaho is well on it’s way – no doubt we’ll have a few cold snaps yet, but all in all the groundhog didn’t lie. With the natural cycle of things the post Winter clean up is nearly here, so whether you just want to tidy up to get the man cave ready for Summer or are going digging for buried treasure hiding in your garage here are some great tips for getting your garage in order!

Work on a Section at a Time.
If you have a ton of stuff piled up try to move some of it at least temporarily out of the garage while you work to open up more space. Once you have a little room pick a corner and start there. Some items will be of no use or value, old paper, etc – go ahead and designate a space or pile for “toss” items.

Organize As You Go.
While you work through items organize as you go. Put like items with other like items. Use boxes or plastic containers to group smaller items together into stackable columns. Think vertically; stack items up against walls to open up more floor space.

Love it or Lose it.
How do you know what to keep or what to get rid of? Ask yourself have I seen this item in five years? Have I used this item in two years? If the answer to either is no and it’s not an heirloom, tax, or business related…you may want to let it pass along.

Ready for the sale? Spend a little to make it easier – visit the local dollar store before your sale to get inexpensive items like pricing labels and poster board to make signs for you sale. Advertise online: social networks like twitter are especially good for getting localized interest built up.

Remember: whether it’s before the sale or after we can help you tame your clutter! If you’ve got junk, give us a holler!
