Spend a Weekend Clearing Out the Garage

When it comes to cleaning and clearing out the home, we often overlook the garage. It’s because this is seen as being a separate entity from the rest of the property. But, it is just as important, and you need to make sure you give it attention. The garage can serve a practical purpose for your property, and is an excellent addition to any home.

So, you need to make sure that the garage is in fantastic condition. And this means ensuring that it’s clean and tidy. Unfortunately, this is often easier said than done. The garage is often home to a lot of junk that builds up over the months and years. So, you need to make sure you have a good clear out and get it back to being a functional garage once again. This is a great organizational tip for the New Year. Here’s what you can do to help you through the process.
Get Friends to Help
This might be a big job for you, depending on how much stuff you have in your garage. And it may well be too much for one person to deal with on their own. That’s why you need to make sure you bring in friends and family members to help. The idea is to do this in the shortest possible timeframe. That is how you reduce the stress of clearing out the place. And you can give away items you don’t want anymore.
Clear as Much Space as You Can
It’s important to clear as much space as you can so you can make use of the garage again. It needs to be a practical room and not just somewhere to store junk. So, by clearing as much space as possible, you free up room to use the space properly. In order to clear all this space, you’re going to need to make sure you have an idea of what to do with your stuff. Some of it you’ll want to keep and some you’ll want to throw away.

Throw Junk Away

You’re bound to have a lot of junk in the garage that you no longer need. We are all hoarders by nature, and it’s time to stop! Set aside all of your junk and stuff you no longer need, and focus on getting rid of it. Find a company that specialises in rubbish collection and get them to come collect the stuff. This is the right approach to take because you might have rubbish that’s a nightmare to get rid of yourself.

Create Storage
The best bet is to try to create as much storage space as possible in the garage. This will help you to store a lot of your stuff, but also maximise space in the garage at the same time. A great way of doing this is to set up ceiling bars to allow you to store stuff without it having to be on the floor. You might also want to think about getting cabinets and shelving units that you can put stuff into.


Clearing out the garage is something we all need to get around to doing. But it can seem like such a big, daunting job that it’s easy to put off. But that’s why you need to get your head down and just do it. Don’t put it off because then you’ll never end up getting it done. Set aside a weekend to get in there and do everything that needs doing.
