How To Declutter The Garage

Decluttering the garage can be a huge job, depending on how many years you have stacked boxes in the corner and along the walls to get them out of the living area of the house.

My recommendation is to start on the garage and set a specific amount of time to go through each box, shelf, etc. A great start is 2-3 hours a week and set a specific day of the week.

As you get started on your decluttering mission, the following checklist, specifically designed for the garage, will give you a great start to getting this room in perfect ‘no-clutter’ condition!
