Garages and garden sheds can quickly
become an obstacle course of clutter, much like an attic or the empty guestroom.
It doesn’t take long before you collect everything from toys and tools to old clothes
and furniture. The good news, there are actually some amazingly simple storage
tips for a more organised garage and shed.
To simplify and organise your life,
remember that your garage is not a dumping ground. With a little bit of efforts
and loads of planning and decluttering, you and your family can greatly benefit.
It all starts with putting a plan in place to get rid of everything you no
longer need, want or knew you had. If you absolutely have to keep things for
whatever reason, rather rent a self storage unit.
Many of you would probably agree that garages are mostly used as a dumping ground for all the extra stuff. It’s a bit like the loft really where you frequently store things supposedly short-term but that never happens. Before you know it, there are ever increasing piles of junk all over the floor and very little space to move, not to mention park your car!
Before you even consider garage storage solutions, decluttering is the first step. You can have the best ideas to store but why waste time and effort on things that you should rather get rid of? Your garage is likely filled with old boxes, bags, shoes and other bits and bobs that don’t belong. Be ruthless when sorting through everything and don’t store unwanted items just for the sake of it.
