Most people use their garage for more than just their car. They will use it to store tools, old boxes, and many other things. If you are one of those people that have packed their garage so full that your car barely fits anymore, then you may want to read ahead for tips on making your messy garage a neat and tidy space once again.

The first thing you are going to want to do is head into your garage with a garbage bag and gloves. Throw away everything that is trash. When you have thrown away all you are willing to throw away, move everything out of your garage and commence thorough cleaning.

When the garage becomes cluttered and messy it can attract bugs nests or rodents. You may need to call an exterminator if you find severe problems. If you cannot afford an exterminator, then you will want to arm yourself with bug spray and lay out rat traps if you notice signs of rodents.

After everything has been cleaned out, and while all of your boxes and things are still out of the garage, go through them. Think of what you need and want, and decide if there is anything that you can give away, or perhaps sell in a yard sale.

If you are still left with a bunch of clutter, think about the things that you have left to put away. You can install shelves, cabinets, and hooks in your garage. If you have a lot of tools, then you can install a tool rack on a wall of the garage. Any of these are great ways to save space and a lot more efficient than stacking boxes.

After cleaning out your garage and installing your new space organizers, put them to good use. Sort things before putting them back into your garage. For instance, separate tools, holiday decorations, old clothes, and other things that can be put into different categories and then stored.

It may take a lot of patience to do it, but if you can muster the will to clean out your garage, it really is not as hard as you think. You can be done in no time.
