Still, when settling into a new home, you need to get things organized regardless of who’s doing the unpacking.
One of the rooms that requires a great deal of organization is the garage. Typically, a resort for unwanted junk, the garage often becomes incredibly cluttered over time. For homeowners, there’s no better time to organize a garage than immediately after moving in.
Sort your possessions
Before placing items from your old garage into the new one, separate your belongings into groups. For items that are no longer used, consider creating a donation pile. The same goes for items that are seasonal or for yard maintenance.
Use space saving techniques
The St. Louis packing services offered by All My Sons is centered around efficiency and organization. When organizing your garage, it’s important to mimic this mentality. Invest in peg boards as an inexpensive and effective way to organize tools and other items.
Installing shelves and cabinets will also help to organize your larger items. Use this for paint cans, boxes and other items you wish to keep out of the way.
Place seasonal items near the back
Items such as holiday decorations, outdoor equipment or anything else that you won’t utilize on a regular basis should be stored away from the area of the garage you will be using the most. For example, snow-blowers, lawnmowers, winter coats, shovels, etc.
