#1. Pick a day where you can take everything out of your garage.
#2. Lay out all the items on your driveway or lawn.
#3. As you bring items out from the garage, sort the items into
categories (ie. gardening, tools, sports, holiday decorations,
luggage, car accessories, lawn and snow equipment, toys, etc).
#4. Review items in each of these categories and determine the
items that you want to keep, items that are trash/recycle, items
that you are able to donate/sell, items you have duplicates of,
#5. Working with the ‘keep’ items, determine how much you have in
each category and then set up zones for those categories.
Items that are used the most often should be in the most
#6. Install additional shelving, hooks and (clear) bins as needed
so that you can find ‘homes’ for the items you are keeping.
#7. Label your bins – masking tape and a sharpie work great!
