It's that time again, folks. The kids are going back to school and summer is coming to an end...It goes by so fast doesn't it? It seems like just yesterday we were giving you "Spring Cleaning Tips" and now it's time to clean out your garage from those summertime activities. We're sure you have pool toys, bikes, luggage, and various other summer items laying around your garage...but not to worry! We're giving you some tips for a summer garage clean out!
Tips For A Summer Garage Clean Out:
Utilize wall space-Any hardware or storage supply store will carry specific racks meant for certain "toys" (i.e. bikes, scooters, skateboards, golf clubs) that can be hung on your garage wall. This gets those toys off the floor and out of your way!
Bins & buckets-Invest in several clear bins to store all that summer fun. Some of those summer toys, however, won't fit in a bin. If that's the case, purchase a plastic bucket with rope handles. This stores the item and makes it easy to find, too!
Tip: Consider color coding your bins/buckets according to season (green for spring, yellow for summer, orange for fall, blue for winter) to easily organize toys, equipment, decorations, etc.
Garage sale-Now is a great time to do an "end of summer" garage sale. If you need some tips, we've got ya covered! Take a look at our Garage Sale Tips.
Decor-Keep in mind as you put those summer toys away that you will soon be getting out Fall/Winter holiday decorations (yep, that will be here before we know it, too)! You may want to bring those decorations towards the front of you attic or storage space to keep you from having to search and drag them around.
Good luck with your summer garage clean out!
