Summer is almost here and so you may be beginning to think about all of the things that you will be buying and need to store. Whether it’s a new bike or something a little more exotic, making a room for your summer purchases is an important task. Or you may just want to give your garage a good old clean, either way, you will need a plan of action to get your organisation underway.

Here are some tips to get you started:

Box It

It may seem obvious, but many people struggle to find space in the garage as they have piled items into the space without thought over a long period of time. You may be surprised by how much space you can actually save by putting these ragtag items into boxes. Boxes neatly stack away, hold a plethora of things that you might not want to have just lying around and make moving all of your items that much easier next time.

Start from Scratch

This one is a high effort and high reward method. The idea is that you take everything out of the garage, then meticulously go through and place it back inside in a much more space-saving fashion. This method also means that for a time you have a free garage which you can spruce up in itself to make the space feel new. A bit of paint could be the perfect solution to do just this, especially if its white as it can help your space feel like a much bigger space.

Sort Your Items

Sometimes, grouping your items together can be the best way to sort your garage and make it much more accessible. Group together everything of the same type – i.e. your bikes, files and other similar items – and designate them a particular area of the garage. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous you can even label all of these and put in them in alphabetical order. This is the path to a super organised garage.

Delete the Waste

Of course, a final way you can organise your garage is by eliminating some of the items altogether. Throw away the excess items that you no longer have a need for. Take the time to finally part with that long-forgotten gym equipment, the rusty outdoor benches or other miscellaneous items you forgot you even had. Start throwing and save today!
