Before the Christmas season completely consumes you, now is a great idea to tackle your garage. You’ve been meaning to clean it since forever and each month, you have just come up with an excuse on why you don’t want to or why you are still not cleaning your garage.
But as they say, there is no better time than now. Drop all the excuses and just do what you have to do. It might be extra overwhelming if you’ve accumulated a lot of garbage but mind over matter, always, so just tell yourself to tackle one area first, and then once done, you can do another space. Before you know it, you’ve done it. It’s cleaned.
But if you want more convincing, why do your garage cleaning now when the holiday season is filled with dinners, parties, get-togethers, holiday cheer everywhere, etc. You cleaning the garage wouldn’t be a glamorous job at all and you have to do it all while thinking people are having fun outside. Well, here are some specific reasons that can hopefully change your mind.
Shift your mindset and know that you actually have lots of time this Christmas. You are just fretting about what you’ll wear or serve that it consumes your time and makes you panic. Well, try letting go of social media and using your phone all the time and you will discover how much time you actually have in a day. Once you stop doing these things, you will immediately look for something that you could do. And Christmas, people are on vacation mode and your company will most likely announce a break so this means you will have time by your side because the company you are working for is going on a break.
The second reason is that you will be hosting dinners! You don’t want your entourage to see how messy your garage is, especially if your garage is the entry point to your home. And if your garage is really like a giant waste bin, chances are it will smell pretty bad. So if we were you, we'd be cleaning the garage by now so we could save ourselves from future embarrassment or a scolding from visiting parents or whatnot.
Third is that you need space. Your home is small so you need to extend the party venue to the garage. You can do this by ensuring it’s clean before your party happens. You need to install smart storage solutions that will maximize the garage space and use your walls and ceiling so that the floor will be free for any other purpose it may serve.
