Spring is a great time to take stock of everything that has piled up in your garage during the winter. Whether you are preparing for a garage sale, need to find gardening tools, or just want to see the floor again, Spring is a great time to get this done. Organized by Catherine has compiled these 10 Tips to help you spring clean your garage.

  • Choose a sunny day and use the space on your driveway to sort items.
  • Have the following supplies at hand: broom, cloth or paper towels, garbage bags.
  • Sort as you go. Group similar items together: hand tools, chemicals, sports equipment, etc. This will make it easy to see what you have, making it easier to decide what to keep.
  • Create a pile of items you want to sell. Take pictures of each item at the end of the day.
  • Don't have time to sell? Move what you want to get rid of to the curb and place a FREE sign on it.
  • Too much stuff on the floor? Purchase a 5-shelf resin rack at your local big box store. Many assemble without tools. Look for heavy duty ones that can fit two large Rubbermaid bins on each shelf.
  • Take advantage of space near the ceiling. Hire a local handyman to build shelves that hang from the ceiling.
  • No space for recycling bins? Mount them on the wall with specially designed wall brackets.
  • Purchase a wall mounted broom organizer to keep snow shovels, rakes, and other tools with a long handle off the floor.
  • Mount peg board and use peg board accessories to hang frequently used items such as garden hand tools, scissors, baggies of twist ties, etc.
