This is the perfect time of year to attack your garage or basement. Many of us use our garages to store unused treasures, hide away inherited items and store what doesn’t fit in the house.  As a Professional Organizer, I see many of my clients lose valuable space with invaluable items. Here is a quick checklist to help you focus on organization and create a more efficient space.

o Sort items into major categories like toys, tools etc.

o Purge items that are no longer needed, duplicates, or trash.

o Bring items to donate to a local charity.

o Install shelving or a pegboard to maximize vertical storage space.

o Use clear bins and labels to properly store what you are keeping.

o Pull your car back into the garage for the first time in years!
