Remove the Junk
The first step in cleaning our your garage is to clean out your garage, literally! Take everything out of your garage so that you can assess what you have been storing inside your garage all of this time. Once you pull everything out of your garage, you will be able to determine better what you can keep, what you can donate and what needs to be thrown away.
Ask yourself questions as you are sorting through things like, “have I used this within a year?” If the answer is no, you should then be able to determine whether you can toss or donate the item. Is the item broken? Don’t hold onto items that are broken with the expectation that you will repair them; chances are you have done this in the past, and they have yet to be repaired.
Sort your items into three piles, keep, donate and junk. The items that you will be keeping will need to find a new permanent home in your newly organized garage. The items in your donate and junk pile can leave with a junk hauling company like Junk Pros.

Clean and prepare your Garage
Before you put anything back into your garage, you first need to clean your garage. Clean windows, workbenches, replace needed light bulbs and lastly sweep and the clean the floor.
Before you put the items, you are keeping back into your garage come up with a plan for the organization. Don’t just toss everything back in haphazardly. Adding simple shelving or places to hang tools to keep things off of the ground helps immensely with the organization.
Consider creating a space for holiday decorations, another space for tools, sports equipment and so on. Place things that you access the most often in easy to reach places. Once finished, you won’t have to rummage through bins and boxes everytime you need to find something.
