The first step to getting your garage organized is simply getting rid of things that you no longer need. You might be surprised to find just how many things are living in your garage that you would be perfectly happy living without.
The “three piles” method is great for this process. Across your garage floor, create three piles or sections that you can use to sort out your things. One pile will be things you are sure you want to keep, another pile will be things you definitely want to get rid of, and the last pile is the “maybes”. Take some time to sort everything into these three sections and you’ll be well on your way to making major progress.
Once the piles are done, go about the process of getting rid of everything that you were sure could go. Consider offering some items up on a neighborhood social media page, or just take them to the dump if they are of no use to anyone. Then, gradually work through the “maybes” pile to decide the fate of each of those items.
