Spring is Here
Many of us have just made it through a long and irregular winter. Spring is the time of year when we start getting outside more often. This is also the time of year when we tackle spring-cleaning chores around the home and yard.
After a long winter, one of the areas in the average household that requires extra attention is the garage. Sorting, organizing and storing ‘stuff’ can free up extra space, allow you to take inventory of the family gear, and help you feel like you’ve accomplished something.
We’ve gathered together a few useful tips to get started with the garage, or for that matter, any room in your house.
Setting up Your Space
You can usually easily identify areas in the garage that are not being used to their full potential. If you get a little bit creative you can imagine how much more effective it would be with say some shelves. An improved arrangement will increase the space’s usefulness.
Bike & Sports Equipment
Bikes can easily be stored by hanging them from the ceiling if you can arrange it, or even buying a rack designed for bikes. Smart storage not only gets the bikes out of the way, but it makes it very easy to get them in and out.
Some equipment such as racquets or skates don’t have a clever solution like the bikes do. Plastic storage bins or trunk storage is ideal for storing the piles of shoes, boots, skates, snowshoes and you name it.
