I organize my garage about once every two years. I'd do it more often, but the other people who live in our house are clutter mongers, and refuse to stay organized. Since I am the one who has to organize and maintain the organization, it's easier for me to start from scratch less often. Last week I stumbled through my garage, past the wheelbarrow full of baseball bats and gloves, around two uncoiled garden hoses, two old box springs, myriad containers of hardware, and three beat up garbage cans, simply to find my hedge clippers lying on the floor underneath two sets of heavy duty extension cords instead of hanging from the peg board, where they were supposed to be. Trust me; I know it's time to organize the garage.
As with organizing any room in your home, there are five basic steps to create organization: sort items, get rid of things you don't need, organize space, store it, and maintain the organization. Follow these guidelines to complete each step, and organize your garage:
Once you've organized all of your stuff, try to maintain it. If you use the weed eater, put it back in its place. If you buy something new, make space for it in an appropriate space. Never store lawn chemicals or gasoline next to food items.
