Project Garage: Decluttering the Space
January 13, 2023
Looking for a weekend project?
While you can of course opt for an artsy use of your camera or knit a jacket for a loved one, you can also choose to declutter.
Decluttering will help clear your mind and help ease your anxiety. Decluttering can give you extra money by selling the items that you are no longer using and will be discarding. Decluttering will make room in your small house that you’d be able to use for things you can’t do because you lack space. Decluttering will immediately throw you into nostalgia lane when you go through different memories marked by your belongings. Decluttering will allow you to help others by donating to them some stuff that they can use to better their lives.
So why not declutter this weekend since you have been talking about it for a while?
You have free time and you are looking for something to do. Instead of binge-watching another show, declutter first so that you can have a nice weekend with new space and a clear mind.
We highly suggest starting with the garage first. This will help free up space in the garage that can be used for storage. You’d be freeing up the main house too by transferring items to the garage that it can now accommodate after a thorough clean-up.
It might get overwhelming and you might want something fun. So invite your family to help you! You’ll bond over items that you’re going to see again after X years and remember the memories that they hold for you.
If taking this advice to declutter the garage first, it’s best if you can also order wall shelves and overhead storage racks to maximize the storage capacity of your garage and have everything organized. The wall shelves and hooks will be for the items that you need to be accessible on a regular basis. And then, the overhead storage racks will be for seasonal items that are only taken out for special occasions.
