Friday Favorite: Organize Your Garage
A beautiful weekend is a great time to get out and organize the garage. If your garage is filled with clutter from the summer, get to it before it gets too cold. You’ll appreciate the time spent getting things in order when you can pull your car all the way into the garage before a snowstorm. According to a survey by the US Department of Energy, 25% of people with two-car garages don’t park any cars in them, and 32% only have room for one car! Most of the stuff that stands in the way is clutter. Random clutter requires your time and attention, it’s not going to go away on its own. You have to spend time determining what to keep and what to toss. Of course, Chaos To Order organizers are experts at this and will guide you through the process. Once you’ve done the decluttering, you need a system in place to store what remains. We love the custom garage systems from Closet Works. They work with what you have and create a unique system to fit your specific needs. Another system we like is Gladiator Garage available at Sears. It’s a slatwall system that you can customize with hooks, baskets, shelving and other accessories.
Now is a good time to make sure that items used strictly in the summer get put away and winter things are easily accessible. Who knows, we may need that salt and snowblower sooner than you think!
