Clear Out Garage Clutter for Good
With careful planning and a few targeted purchases you can make this often overlooked space a functional area for the entire family.
First, evaluate the contents of your garage. Start with your cars: Ensure there’s enough clearance to park and get in and out. Then remove items you probably should have purged years ago. Donate items in good condition -- organizations such as Goodwill can often arrange to pick up your donations curbside -- or plan a garage sale to turn them into cash.
Next, plan a thorough cleaning. Consider hiring a cleaning service, or enlist family members to help. Walk through other rooms in your house to see if they contain any underutilized furniture that can be repurposed in the garage.
