Organizing the Garage, tips from an unorganized woman

There’s one thing that I’ve struggled with most of my life and you guessed it, being organized. It’s been a bit of a problem.

And then I learned something about myself, I need to treat my problem like a project. I love working on projects, like painting a piece of furniture, because there’s a beginning and an end.

Garage Project

  1. Purge – we moved after being in a house for over 10 years. Being unorganized makes you buy something that you already have, just because you can’t find it. Sell or giveaway the duplicates. Our neighborhood has a community Facebook page where the neighbors list items for sale. If it’s a free item, they sit in the driveway and post it on the page too. See if there are any easy options in your neighborhood for purging.
  2. Sort – Keep like items together. If you have a box filled with everything from cleats to golf tees, you’re not going to rummage through it to get what you need.
  3. Just Do It – You can look at, talk about it, think about it and it will never get done. Pick a day, start early and get it done.
  4. Use vertical space – My storage trick for adding the illusion of space is going vertical, utilizing the wall space!

My husband can’t find anything unless he can see it. This results in a lot of stuff laying around, piled on top of other stuff. All of this is usually at ground level, horizontal and that makes junk look even more unorganized.
