Garage Clutter 5 Ways to Reduce Your Garage Clutter

However good the intentions, a garage can often become a dumping ground for all unnecessary household clutter. Such an accumulation of stuff can make a garage decluttering seem like such an enormous task that it almost isn’t worth starting. Although it can seem pretty impossible, it really is easier than first thought, and once finished offers a whole new space to work in.

Reuse your old jars 

For many, when a favourite spread is finished the jar goes straight into the recycling bin; but an old jar can actually be a really great cost-effective storage solution. Repurposed jars are perfect for holding nails and screws. Their see-through nature comes in handy, making it easy to identify the contents and to know when you are running low and need a restock. It makes the chances of stepping on a nail far less likely, too!

Keep your floors free with old baskets

Stocking up on baskets can be a really effective way of making sure the garage floor doesn’t become a dumping ground. Having a different basket for different types of things will ensure they don’t become disorganised. The beauty of a basket over a box for storing small items comes in the handles. These make the basket extra portable and easy to hang saving some more of that precious floor space.

To avoid this situation, use the cars storage rack to keep the bikes upright and tidy. The bike rack can either be left on the floor or if space is an issue attach the rack to the walls with some bolts.

The length of the shelves and distance between them is much larger than a normal commercial wardrobe, meaning you have space to fit everything from power tools to garden equipment.
