How Important Is Proper Storage?

More and more we are caught running around and not stopping to take a breath. There is work, meetings, kids, activities, house cleaning, meal prepping and more. The list never really stops, so neither do you. Wouldn’t it be nice if just one day you could come home and all the cleaning would be done? Everything would be in the right place. For most, this is definitely on the wish list. But, we run into walls when it’s time for ideas and everything remains where it is.

To quit running the normal cycle, one has to know what difference it will make to put the pedal to the medal. If you only think about it increasing your daily work, then it is never going to happen.

In the beginning, you are absolutely right. It will be a chore to put everything together and find the right placement for your belongings. What you need to do is think past that.

Because of our scheduling and lift in general, things tend to be chaotic. You lay things down and leave them there, even as you know you should do something about it. One piece of paper doesn’t seem like a problem, but it encourages the behavior further.

Each time you walk by with a few pieces of mail and you see a pile started on the counter, what do you do? Unconsciously, set the new mail there creating a bigger pile. When you think about it, it’s kind of like the more you see, the more you do.

Let’s say you had created an organizational system with the mail. Maybe it’s still in the kitchen, but you have a wall system that will hold mail. There is a spot for bills, personal and even an area for shredding. Each time you get the mail and walk into the kitchen, you will notice the mail on the wall neatly placed. A simple placement like this helps one remember that mail does not go on the counter.

Expert organizers tend to make the job of organization a tough experience. But, not everyone can handle that and then all they do is get discouraged. Are you one that gets discouraged? If so, don’t let the complex systems they have get you in a bad mood. Just think about what you have and how you can use it to help.

In the instance of the mail, you could even staple some folders to the wall and make them hold the mail. No buying there, just using what is already in the home.

Proper storage will help you lessen the chaotic environment that already exists. The reason we use the word proper, is because you can have storage and it not help one bit. Like the above scenario, the countertop would be storing the mail. Not really the countertops job, thus not proper storage.

If you can wrap your mind around the usage of proper storage, the chaos will begin to lessen!

Garages Deserve Organization

Cleaning the garage can give you more benefits than just a clean space. If done right, it can increase your home’s value. No one really thinks about that fact. Very few pay attention to that fact until it has gotten out of control. The clutter has gone from just being a few piles to being a huge conjunction of stuff with few pathways.

You must first decide how you want standard you want to bring your garage. Do you want just enough room to walk? How about enough room to park the car? Maybe even squeeze enough empty space that you can have a work area, if you wish. Any number of these things are possible, through the following steps:

1. For the bigger jobs, don’t take on anything without giving yourself something to be proud of. You can separate the portions of the room and choose to take it piece by piece. Either way, when you hit a milestone stop and congratulate yourself for making that far.

2. Try to remove everything from the garage. This may seem more difficult than it really is. No need to try organizing things just yet. The importance of this step is merely to see how much space you want to gain and how much you wish to use.

3. Set up at least 4 different piles. There should be a keep, trash, donate and recycle. The donation could also serve as a sale pile, if you wish to hold a garage sale afterwards. The hardest part of this step, staying true to those piles. You will never get anything done by putting something in the trash, donate or recycle pile and then deciding you want to keep it after all.

4. SLOW! Most people have a cluttered garage because they didn’t take the time to put things away. Once the clutter is to a certain point, it’s just depressing to think about moving and cleaning it all up. Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was that messy. Always give yourself extra time to get everything done. Allow yourself to work at a pace comfortable to you.

Imagine, just following these four steps can get you on your way to organizing the garage. The first step in organizing has been always cleaning and weeding through the junk. Giving a system to all that important, not every piece of trash that may have made its way in there.

With this all in mind, you will be able to see a different space. Somewhere you can walk and trust you aren’t going to fall and break an ankle. A secure room to park the car from invaders or weather. Most importantly, with a few additions, you can have more room for stuff than you thought!

Organization is kind of like Tetris. You have to test the space and figure out what will fit to make sure the pile doesn’t get too high!

Garage Organizing Cabinets

Picking out the right garage cabinet may seem pretty easy. It should be no different than picking out the cabinet for your kitchen or bathroom right? Wrong. The kitchen or the bathroom benefit from normal cabinets with a certain air of superiority to them. The garage has to ring with the air of durability and great structure. You can pick out the material as easily as the others, but the rest is where the real decision making comes in.
It’s all about the look
When you are more concerned with the look of the cabinets than anything else, your choices are pretty fair. The main materials you will run across, is either the metal, plastic or wood. Of course, the wood requires more upkeep and generally metal is more expensive. Although, if you are going for custom editions, the prices will fluctuate more.
The worst thing about making purchases, will it be put to use. Especially, when you are making a big purchase? This is the big question when you consider cabinets. Do you actually have a use for them? Sounds pretty insane to ask that, right? Who would search just for garage cabinets when you don’t need them?
Lots, actually. What happens is the mind starts to turn and it leads to many ideas, but as you research you find better methods. If you don’t need something to be in a closed environment or something to be locked up, you probably don’t need cabinets. Have nothing that can really benefit from a drawer? Then you don’t need too many cabinets with drawers.  
What if you say, I will still get them.
That’s fine, but you may end up regretting that decision. Eventually, you will tire of seeing a brand new product not being used, thus you will resort to finding a use. Sometimes that use ends up being a big cluttered mess.
Types of cabinets
If you already know what kind and you know the use, then you are on to the types of cabinets. Like above, you only need to get what you will use. That is the trick to most purchases. When looking at different providers, you will find cabinets that roll, hang on the wall, add countertop space and so on. Anyone big on tools would love some of the metal rolling cabinets, it’s like a toolbox only better.
Garage organization requires just as much tact as does any other room. Just because you don’t use it as often, doesn’t mean it should be ignored. Everything has potential in your house. Well, everything does with a little love from you.
Cabinets are only the first step into providing great organization to your garage. You can find many unique methods of storing items in them as well. That’s one thing to think about if you are set on cabinets, but not sure how to use them. See what you can find to make them into the item you want.
Soon you will be ready to put everything together!
