It's hard when you can't even use your garage to park your car because it is taken over by clutter. Sometimes the clutter can just take over before we even know it and then the garage is used as extra storage space rather than a place for the car. But don't fret because you can use the space for both if you organize it correctly.

Organization is key. People that take the time to organize their garages have the space to fit cars and other stuff as well. Follow these few tips from the experts at Do It Yourself to get you started.

  1. First assess what you want to stay in the garage and what you want to go.
  2. After you have have everything that is staying, start to separate the items into categories. ie. toys, tools, cleaning supplies.
  3. Look at the walls of your garage as additional flooring. With the right accessories like shelving and hooks you can easily multiply the amount of storage space.
  4. Use things that you already have at home in order to organize instead of rushing out to the store and buying new bins and containers.

With things out of your way and on the wall, it creates the perfect amount of space to park that car of yours.
