It’s time to get spring cleaning, and the best way to give your garage a spring clean, is to dive in and get started.
If the task of spring cleaning your garage seems daunting, check out these tips to clean out that garage and get organised this year.
Have a Plan
The first thing one needs when tackling the job of spring cleaning the garage is to have a plan. What is the purpose of your mission to clean? Is it organisation? Decluttering? Finding those long lost gardening tools?
Whatever your purpose for the cleaning, you need to know what your plan is and understand the goal before diving in. Once you know why you need to give your garage a spring clean, no matter how overdue it may be, you will be able to tackle the job with purpose and not get bogged down in the little things.
Have a System
Next you need a system. If your plan is to declutter, how will you determine what stays and what goes? Consider a system of piling outside the garage in a systematic manner. What stays, what goes, what needs cleaning, what needs a new home. Then get to it.
If your plan is to reorganise, you might wish to categorise while you move things from the garage, so you can clean it out and then replace and re-shelve in an organised manner.
If your plan is simply to find what you are looking for, then you need to know what you plan to do if you find it right away, or if you don’t find what you are looking for at all. Will you reorganise along the way? Will you clean up as you go? Will you simply move things from one side of the garage to the other?
Regardless of the purpose or plan, having a system determined prior to beginning the job of spring cleaning your garage, will allow you to be more purposeful in your job and therefore, moving through the task in a timely and efficient manner.
Don’t Over Think It
In the end, the goal is to clean the garage. Don’t over think the plan or the task. Get to it. Pick a place to start and get started. Have a garbage bin ready to throw away trash, and a spare box for what you want to give away.
Don’t handle things more than once in the beginning. Pick up something and find its home. The tool box, the bin, the giving away box, the shelves. Whatever its place, put it there and move on. If you think its trash, it probably is. Don’t keep it “just in case,” just pitch it and forget it.
Having a plan, a system, and not second guessing yourself, can help you make quick and efficient decisions and get the job done quicker. The best way to give your garage a spring clean is to get to it, focus, and get it done.
