Worth the Flex: The 5 Garage Storages that Everyone Envies
September 30, 2021
I have recently found myself fascinated with garage organizing. It’s therapeutic to sort, arrange and clean my two-car garage space, though I can firmly say that I can’t still Marie Kondo my way to cleaning as a self-proclaimed maximalist. I have a terrible habit–yes, I admit to some degree–of hoarding things, pretty things I don’t use. Whenever I’m out to do grocery shopping, I take a side trip to the bookstores and get my hands on books, which I will not flip through the pages until I have finished all the piles of books waiting to be read. Or when I’m feeling blue, I head towards the arts and crafts section to buy paints, pencils, markers, craft papers, canvases, and the like. But you know I will not even touch it as I only make art when I do not have anything to watch on Netflix. Or browse through online shops and check out items like clothes and bags I do not wear and use nowadays because staying indoors is the most feasible option not to get the virus. On top of these, I still have all the gifts my friends and family gave me for the past decades, old stuff stemming from my childhood I could not just let go of. So, yes, I’m a certified sentimental maximalist. And I admit that I can’t shake off the habit of collecting and hoarding overnight, but as I would always say, there’s such a concept of organized chaos. I made that up, of course, to justify my being a hoarder. But let me also say that the best way to keep my garage clean and organized despite the much stuff accumulating in the space is to install reliable garage storage. They have been my go-to garage accessories. Now, I need not worry about how my things can get messed up with my other mementos. I categorize them, put them in specific boxes, label them accordingly and place them in overhead storages and wall shelves. Problem solved! So, I will let you in on my not-so-little secret. Here’s the list of the ever-dependable storage I use.
