Mission 20: Garage

Much like last week’s mission, I think this is a great time of year to tackle our garages. Hopefully, the weather will not be too hot or cold yet.

Some people call them carports. Some people call them garages. For our purposes we are going to call it the garage. 

Be sure and declutter any cabinets you have. Clearing any countertop space you have will offer a big impact as well.

Spend some time sorting your tools. Group like items together. Get rid of anything you never use. Be sure and label any bins you may have. The goal is to maximize our space as well as knowing that every item has a home and you know where that home is.

Many people use hooks for holding shovels, rakes, and more. Using your wall space is so helpful in a garage. You can hang ladders, bikes, fishing poles, and so much more. You may need to tour a home improvement center to find the right option for you.

Storage bins are great as well.  Christmas lights, outdoor toys, swim toys, etc. Don’t forget the yard tools, extension cords, and painting supplies. Sports equipment can be stored in bins as well.

This is another hard space to generalize because interests are different. Some people use their spaces for woodworking and building projects. The main goals are to know where your things are and make things look as decluttered as they possibly can.

This is also a great week to clean up those big items like lawn mowers and weed eaters. Just because it’s a garage doesn’t mean it has to be a mess!
