How to Achieve Garage Organization in Four Steps


Messy Garage

Your garage serves different purposes for your busy lifestyle. It is easy to overwhelm such an important space. They can be parking spaces, storage areas, workshops, living spaces and the possibilities go on. Most often, garages become a multi-use space without a definition of how the area will be used or organized. 

At Hello Garage of Kansas City, we have helped customers achieve the garage of their dreams! Let’s break down how to achieve garage organization in four steps. 

Step 1: Clean Out the Garage    

The first step to achieving garage organization is to clean out the space. It is vital to go through each item and decide if you need it. While this first step is tough and time-consuming, it is necessary to create more space and get rid of clutter.  

As you go through the garage and find items put them into the following piles: 

  • KeepThese are high-value items that you use all the time. If you find yourself wondering, “when was the last time I used this?” then chances are you don’t need it.   
  • Donate/ Sell: If you haven’t used it in the last 12 months, the items go into this pile. Here you decide if the item can be sold or donated. If you’re looking to make some extra money, consider having a garage sale or selling on Facebook Market Place. If you don’t want to sell, consider donating to a local charity or shelter. 
  • Toss: If the items are old or not in good condition, it is okay to get rid of them. Be sure to dispose of the items properly.

Step 2: Sort the Keep Pile  

Before moving the items back into the garage, it’s time to take inventory of what you have. How are you going to organize the items? Take a look a start organizing by category (i.e. cleaning supplies, toys, sporting equipment). ThisOrganizing garage shelves allows you to start deciding what type of organization you will need, and you can visualize what it is going to look like.
