    It can be easy to let your garage get out of control. Before you know it, you have boxes of junk from floor to ceiling and your tools are nowhere to be found. Fortunately, all it takes is a bit of hard work and determination to restore order in your garage. If you want to transform your garage from a hapless storage unit to a functional work space, roll up your sleeves and get ready to work. Here are a few tips to cleaning and organizing your garage:

    Get Rid of the Junk
    The first and hardest step of cleaning out a garage is, well, cleaning it out. If your garage has become a repository for junk, drag it all out into the sunlight and get rid of anything that hasn’t been used in the past 12 months. The garage is a place to store important equipment and tools, not your good intentions. Hire a junk removal company to get rid of the items you want to dispose of, or consider having a yard sale to make a few bucks in the process.

    Designate Specific Zones
    After you have gotten rid of the junk, your garage should start to look and feel like a garage again. To prevent another buildup of clutter and junk, designate specific zones throughout the garage. For instance, have one zone for tools and one for miscellaneous storage. Not only will this help you get organized, but by keeping items in their respective zones, you will make sure that you do not lose anything and you will help keep your garage looking clean and composed.

  • What to Do if You Suspect a Loved One is Hoarding

    Hoarding is a psychological disorder in which the sufferer excessively and compulsively collects items that are of little or no value and, not being able to throw any of it away, results in unmanageable amounts of clutter throughout the home. Hoarding is often the result of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and it is also associated with anxiety and depression. If you suspect that a friend or loved one is hoarding, encourage him to seek help, as his problem poses a risk to his health and safety.

    When dealing with a hoarding issue, do not be tempted to get extra storage, as this is only a quick fix that does not directly address the problem at hand. Stage an intervention with the help of a mental health professional and discuss your worries and fears about your loved one’s hoarding behavior. You should also hire a professional junk removal team to safely get rid of the clutter that has accumulated inside of their home.
