Get Your Home Ready For Summer Day 2: Garage Clean Out!

Posted by   + Show Post

Based on your lists from yesterday, it looks like quite a few of you need today's challenge! It's time to tackle your garage. Don't worry, you don't have to do it all today, but get in there and get started. Here are a few ideas to help out.

  • Pull out summer stuff! Do you store your summer things in the garage? Get those out and put away winter things.
  • Look at how you've organized and see if it's the best way. Using clear containers like these makes it easy to see what's where. If you have the space, add a shelf to help organize things.
  • Throw things out! Do you have bikes that are too small for your kids? Or broken rakes? Give them away or throw them out.
  • Actually clean the garage a bit! Sweep and wipe down the shelves you have.
  • Add something "new" that you already have in the house. Take a lamp from the living room or switch rugs with another room.

What needs to be done in your garage? How do you keep things organized?

it's in good shape, we just installed another set of shelves, so we're good to go

I am lacking in closet space for all of my winter items, so I will take the idea of putting in a couple of shelves :) thanks I do not have a garage.

We don't have a garage but do have a carport and I hope that my DH will get out there soon and clean it soon.  I am sick of looking at it.

I wish I had time to clean my garage! It needs to be dusted and mopped.

I need a shed so that true garage doesn't double as storage. Out garage is the man cave but also holds our tools & lawn stuff. We have it pretty streamlined & can have it ready for company in 5 minutes.
