Transform Your Garage: A Step-by-Step Guide to Decluttering and Organising

An organised Garage

Living on the doorstep of Moreton Bay, Redland City Locals often find themselves with one or two too many toys for the outdoors. As a result, your garage, often the catch-all for everything from tools to holiday decorations, can easily become cluttered and disorganised. However, with a bit of planning and effort, you can reclaim this valuable space and turn it into an organised haven.

In this guide, we'll walk you through the process of decluttering and organising your garage, helping you create a functional and efficient space you'll love.

Sort and Declutter

Begin by sorting through all the items in your garage. Create categories such as tools, sports equipment, gardening supplies, and so on. As you sort, be ruthless in decluttering – if you haven't used an item in the past year or it no longer serves a purpose, consider donating, selling, or disposing of it.

Create Zones

Once you've decluttered, it's time to create designated zones within your garage based on the categories you identified earlier. For example, designate an area for tools with a pegboard or wall-mounted organiser, a section for sports equipment with bins or shelves, and a space for seasonal items like holiday decorations.

Label and Containerise

Once everything has its designated zone, label bins, shelves, and containers to make it easy to find what you need. Clear, stackable bins are ideal for storing smaller items and keeping them visible, while larger items can be stored in labeled containers or on shelves.

Maintain Regularly

To prevent your garage from becoming cluttered again, establish a routine for maintenance. Schedule regular decluttering sessions to reassess your storage needs and purge any items that have accumulated over time. Encourage household members to return items to their designated zones after use to maintain organisation.

Invest in Storage Solutions

To maximise space and keep your garage organised, invest in storage solutions such as shelving units, cabinets, and overhead racks. Utilise vertical space whenever possible to free up floor space and keep frequently used items easily accessible.

Still don't have space for your car?

If you still need more space, perhaps it's time to think about a self-storage unit. The team at Redland City Storage can assist or jump online and check out their self-storage space calculator tool.
