Are you fed up of seeing how cluttered your garage has become? Do you know that a clean garage can provide a lot of benefits to you? It decreases the risk of bacteria and also minimizes the garage’s maintenance cost. If you wish to avail these benefits, then these 8 simple steps can help you in decluttering your garage.
Decide Which Items Aren’t Worth Keeping
Thoroughly inspect the contents of your garage and decide whether any item in there is worth keeping. If you haven’t used an item for a long time, it might not be of use to you anymore.
Sorting the Useless Clutter
After deciding which of the items in your garage have no value for you, it is time to sort them into different boxes. Each box should be filled based on the individual value of the items being discarded.
The Garage Sale box should contain any item which you think might be of any use to someone else. You can gain a quick buck or two out of an item that you don’t need, and someone can put that item to good use. It’s a win-win.
All the toys and clothes that your children have outgrown should be put in the Charity box. Donating clothes and toys is the best possible way of getting rid of them. You can also include any items from the Garage Sale that wasn’t bought by anyone in this box.
Any items that couldn’t be sold or donated is basically trash that you need to throw out. This includes broken appliances and furniture that can’t be repaired. Make sure that such small items are disposed of properly.
However, you shouldn’t dispose of big items yourself. Check the collection dates for any kerbside acceptable items and place them on the kerb by 6 AM.
