How to Declutter Your Garage

When you are decluttering your garage here are a few areas that you should remember to focus on.

  • Identify all of the items that you don’t need anymore and have a garage sale. The items that you can’t sell you can donate to charity.
  • Use storage systems to help manage any potential clutter. Whether you have cabinets, shelving, or storage bins, make sure that any loose items are properly stored.
  • Using large, heavy-duty hooks to hang up items such as bicycles, toys, garden equipment, or other sporting goods and eliminate the amount of space they take up on the floor of the garage.
  • Properly cleaning is essential to staging, so make sure that you scrub the floors, dust walls and corners, and, if necessary, consider painting if the area still needs sprucing up after a cleaning.
