Save Square Footage in Your Garage by Cutting Out the Clutter!

Clutter is the enemy of free space! Those camping supplies you’ve never used are just sitting in the corner. That kayak you won’t be needing till summer is simply lying on the floor. For all the tools and supplies your family no longer uses, consider taking a trip to Goodwill or the Salvation Army. Once you’ve purged all the floor of clutter, look at all the new space you’ll have for storing whatever your heart desires.

For those belongings that you can’t get rid of, consider installing specialized hooks or shelves in your garage. You’d be amazed how much you can store on the ceiling. Removing your belongings from the ground reduces the number of hiding places bugs and critters can hide in. It’s also a good habit for protecting your feet from stepping on something sharp.
