When it comes to finding ways to declutter your garage, you mind find that you feel instantly overwhelmed the moment that you walk into it. But the truth is, if you take it slowly and break it down into smaller sections, you can easily tackle all that clutter and get it knocked out in one easy step.

Don’t let the vast area of your cluttered garage scare you. You can easily declutter and organise your garage with these simple tips. 

Get rid of all the rubbish first

If you have rubbish in your garage, it’s just sitting in there and taking up space. Before doing anything else, fill up rubbish bags and get rid of everything that you know is no longer needed or working. Skip hire is something that can be easily arranged and perfect if you have a few items that you are looking to get rid of. You’ll be amazed at how much room can instantly be cleared up just from getting rid of all the rubbish first.

Make a pile to donate items that you no longer need

How many items do you have in your garage that you really don’t need anymore? Take an empty cardboard box and start filling it full of items that you can donate or get rid of. Donating items is a simple way to make more space easily in your garage and is also a great way to get some extra tax deductions potentially as well. 

Work around your garage from left to right

Don’t get distracted when you’re decluttering your garage. Instead of starting in one random place and then trying to go somewhere else once you get distracted, stay focused and clean from left to right in your garage. Go along the wall and clean up or pick up anything that is in your way. That way you’re doing what you can and cleaning as you go. 

Buy clear tubs to store items

Clear tubs with lids are the key. While you can certainly purchase other types of tubs if you want to, clear tubs allow you to not only store like items together but then you can also see inside of them as well to find out what is actually stored. That way you don’t have to take off a lid or worry about digging around inside of the tub. 

Add shelving to your garage walls

Shelving is key to properly decluttering your garage. If you have the space in your garage, add in Rapid Racking shelving to clear the clutter. You can find them in all different sizes and they’re perfect for getting things off the floor and organising them in a way that can be functional as well. 

When it comes to decluttering your garage, these simple tips can help. Not only can you easily do these in a short amount of time, but you’ll be making your garage a more functional and useful space as well. Before you realise it, you’ll have a clean and clear garage that you can actually use for what it’s meant to be used for!
