Organizing the Garage to Be Your Inventory Space

Jun 23, 2022
So you want to start your own business? You have finally saved up, enough to quit your job and go full-time on your entrepreneurial project. Now you’re stuck at home—thinking about everything you have to do to kickstart the business and get things running. Of course, you also dream of your business growing and flourishing into an established brand in the industry of your choice. Before this happens, you have to make do with what you have at the moment. You can have your own dedicated workspace in your bedroom, living room, or any vacant area in your house. This will be where you conceptualize ideas for your brand as well as do important research and development work. But where will be your supply factory located? Where will you put your stocks and do inventory? If there is no space at your house, then the next best option to store them is in the garage which brings us to your next mission: decluttering and organizing the garage to become your inventory space. First off, take away all the items in your garage and divide them into four piles: throw away, keep, sell, and donate. Organize a garage sale for the items that you are no longer using and you think other people would still benefit from. It can either be through an online marketplace or going the old-school route and selling the items in your backyard. For more fun, you can do both. After you’ve discarded items that you will no longer use, categorize the items that you will keep. It’s up to you how you will group these remaining items. But before you return them to the garage, make sure you clean your space from ceiling to floor. Check for cracks and holes that need repairing. Do paint jobs if you want one. Hire professional help if there are repairs or upgrades that you can’t do by yourself. Once the garage is squeaky clean, you can start installing your smart storage solutions such as overhead storage racks and wall shelves that will help organize your belongings and maximize the storage capacity of your garage by making use of vacant wall and ceiling space.
