Your garage may be the most unattractive area of your home as it collects all sorts of clutter and junk. And while most people never see your garage, it may give you some peace of mind to see a clear, organized, and clutter-free space with conscious efforts in garage junk removal.
Imagine how good it will feel to actually be able to park your car in your garage and have space to get out without tripping over tools or boxes of decorations. It’ll be much easier to access the stuff you need, so you’ll end up getting more enjoyment out of your items because of their organization and ease of use.
Steps to a More Organized Garage
Clearing out a large space like a garage can seem overwhelming at first, so it’s important to take it step by step.
First, you’ll need to sort through all of the junk in your garage and decide what is important for you to keep and what can be donated or recycled. Some items are easy to remove, while others may have sentimental value, but it really comes down to how useful those things will be in the future. Do you want that old pair of rollerblades with the broken wheel? Probably not. But that box of tools may come in handy.
Next, take a look at everything you have left and determine what sort of storage you’ll need to keep things organized. This step may require a trip to the store to buy shelving, plastic bins, and other smaller organizational tools. Plan out where the big, bulky items will go and make sure the things you need to get to regularly are easily accessible while other items that you only use once or twice a year are tucked away or stored up high.
Keep the Environment in Mind
Clearing out a garage can be stressful and time consuming, so it can be appealing to just haul everything you don’t want out to the curb and leave it for regular trash pick-up. However, in order to protect the environment and the surrounding community, it’s important to take the steps necessary to avoid having your junk end up in the incinerator or a landfill.
As you sort through your garage, it might be good to have one box for items that can be donated and another for items to be recycled. Items in good, working condition might be useful to someone else and should be taken to a donation facility. Some of your items are worth taking to a recycling facility to lessen their impact on the environment, while other items will need to be hauled to a dump. You can look up all of these places online to find facilities near you.
