Cleaning Out the Garage

It is an Ideal Winter Parking Spot

Garage Cleanout

The garage: a great place for storage and parking, but it can also become a cluttered mess. Now that you may be digging out seasonal decor or storing away summer gear, it’s an ideal time for cleaning out the garage and organizing the space.

Cleaning Out the Garage

Take some tips from cleaning out your garden shed, and organize your garage to make the most of the space. Here’s a small sampling of what you may be faced with:

  • Sports equipment
  • Automotive products
  • Tools
  • Camping gear
  • Seasonal decor

If the variety of clutter starts to overwhelm, take it one section at a time. If holiday decorating is next on your to-do list, start with the seasonal decor to get multiple tasks out of the way. Once the house is decked, head back to the garage for the next section.

One of the best places to start is to toss whatever is beyond repair or reuse. Broken holiday lights, torn garden flags, and those old paint cans that probably shouldn’t be in the garage in the first place. But beware. Certain items can’t be thrown away as is in the trash. Any hazardous chemical, including paint, oil, and gas, needs to be disposed of according to your local regulations.

Next, get a box together for items you want to donate. Still have skis that haven’t seen a mountain side in years? That six-person camping tent for your empty nest? Give these gently used items another chance at adventure when you set them aside for donations.

Now, you should have more room to organize anything you’re going to keep. If you’ve gone section by section, you’ve already done some of the sorting. Before you store items, make sure you repair what you can. If items come out of storage broken, consider what’s worth keeping.
