From simple organization habits, you can work on to finding the right tools, sorting your large items doesn’t have to be such a big problem- both literally and figuratively! Before we get into our top 3 tips, always remember that sorting your large items is all about ensuring your safety and optimizing your space. By sorting, organizing, and ultimately optimizing your space, you ensure not only a better space for you but a space that works for you and your needs!   Separate, Arrange & Optimize When it comes to organizing your space it’s getting started that’s always difficult, especially if it’s been a while since you actually took a look at what you’ve hidden in there! For our first tip on organizing your garage storage, we’ll be taking a well-loved and often used piece of advice from  Marie Kondo. Her tip for starting your journey to a more organized space is by first taking out all of your things from the space and identifying what’s trash and what you need to keep. While this may seem intimidating with larger items, the trick is identifying whether or not your large items are really needed. Change your perspective on the larger items, often we view them as automatic fixtures in our spaces. Ask yourself if the item sparks joy, if it doesn’t it’s probably time to throw it away or sell it.  This allows you to keep the things that matter. After you’ve seen what you’d like to keep and what you’d like to throw away, it’s time to arrange your things based on how often you use them. Move seasonal items like decorations and outdoor gear to space and bring forward the items you use more often like your power tools and gardening materials, by seeing all your items arranged based on use, you have a better idea of how you can organize your garage space based on need and have it optimized for use. Tools & Tricks Now that you have an idea of what you’re working with, the next step is to use some simple tools and apply some easy tricks to allow you to arrange your garage storage better. Start with your most used items before moving on to your larger items. Use hooks to hang up your tools or gardening materials for easier access and to maximize your vertical space. You not only make things easier to use, you also end up creating more space in your garage. Pegboards and bin organizers  are another great option to help aid your organization. By focusing on your smaller items first, you’ll have a better idea on how and where to organize your garage storage to work for you!   Overhead & Underrated Space Now that we’ve covered how to arrange the majority of our items in the garage, it’s time to tackle those big items we’ve been dreading.
