Clearing More Space: Organizing a Messy Garage

Written by Seana Turner, PO.

Few spaces collect clutter like a garage. We dump items here which don’t fit elsewhere, and it is often our “go to” place for the dirty, the large and the wet. Once a year it is a good idea to empty it out and give it an overhaul.

If you’ve never organized your garage, you may want to spend a little time actually planning your garage, and maybe even invest in an a shelving or storage system. There are multiple options on the market to maximize the storage and accessibility of your space.

What You Need:

  • A plan (make a drawing of how you will use the space. Remember to consider your walls and vertical space).
  • A budget. Decide in advance how much you have to spend. This will help as you consider garage storage systems.

Being organized is one of life’s more important skills.  The word however conjures up images of someone who is very neat and tidy and someone who just is naturally gifted.  The reality is quite the opposite; organizing is just like any other skill – some people have an aptitude for it – but with the right knowledge and a little work, it is a skill that anyone can acquire.

A lot of authors start the discussion of this topic with – do you have trouble finding your keys, did you miss paying an important bill, did you forget your girlfriend’s birthday, etc? I am going to try to avoid this approach (yes finding your keys will become easier and so will remembering birthdays).  Instead my approach is more of an intellectual one instead of appealing simply to your emotions – I am doing this purposely.  I am assuming that if you understand the benefits and reasons why you need to do this, then you will follow through with it – appealing just to your emotions may get you started, but it will be hard to get you to keep going.
