Organizing the garage

1) Define your goals and objectives for organizing your garage. Do you want to be able to park a car or two, access storage, create a workspace, etc.? Know your goal so you can design a plan to reach for it.

2) Do you need new storage pieces to help you accomplish your goals? If so, spend time researching available options. Learn what is out there to help you. Go online and visit your local home improvement stores. Take measurements, and then measure again. Don’t underestimate this step, it is very important to a smooth and successfully project.

3) Create your plan of attack. Plot every detail. Know what tools you will need, have any new materials already onsite, and if you are relocating an item(s) be sure to confirm it can actually fit where you intend for it to be. Project day is about progress and pushing forward. It is not a day to solve problems that could have been avoided with proper planning. You will have unexpected problems to deal with so allot time for such.

4) Watch the weather forecast and select an appropriate day to start your project. Temperature effects morale. Begin by emptying the space to allow for proper cleaning before resetting. Don’t underestimate a good cleanout. Shortcuts sometimes cut time off a project but don’t be afraid to take the safer and surer path as well. Moving forward at all times is the objective and key to obtaining great results.

5) Don’t overdue the space. If your garage is also your storage area then be realistic in how much new space you will create. Rather, assure all items in the garage are easily accessible. This will make putting items away easy too. Go for functionality and efficiency. Maximize your storage space don’t waste it.

6) Living organized requires maintenance. Don’t wait until the garage is a cluttered disaster to fix it. Know your living habits and patterns and accommodate them to help stay organized. If you reorganize your space unrealistic to how you live on a daily basis, how can you expect it to stay neat and tidy? Instead, set yourself up to succeed rather than fail.
