Spring Cleaning Tips to Declutter Your Portable Garage

The spring season is upon us. In many parts of the nation that means time to finally thaw out from an extra cold winter packed with snow and ice. Spring is also the perfect opportunity to clean out clutter and mess that’s gathered over the winter months.

Roll up your sleeves and let’s to get organized.

Organize & Declutter

Whether you’ve been using your portable garage to store a vehicle or other valuable over the winter months, or if it’s been a place to store overflow from your home, it’s time to give it a look over to get things organized.

Start by tackling one corner of the portable garage at a time. If you have a vehicle in there pull it out and check for any damage from winter weather to the cover so that it can be replaced.

If you have piles of stuff neatly move through the items and create  piles of “trash” , “keep” and “donate/sell” this is a great way to minimize clutter.

Trash Broken and Useless Items

Items in the trash pile should be damaged, worn and no longer useful. There’s no point in keeping things you think you may need in the future or will have time to fix, when it’s been quite a few years since you’ve even remembered about them. Toss the items in the trash pile in garbage bags and immediately move them out of the space.

Out of sight, out of mind.

Have a Yard Sale

A great thing about clearing out clutter and spring cleaning is that there is an opportunity to have a garage sale and make some money. If you’ve accumulated a large amount of stuff with value that you simply will not be using, why not sell them? The spring time is perfect for garage sales.

The pile you’ve made of items to keep and store again in the portable garage should be wiped down and checked to ensure they are intact. Be sure that these are items you absolutely need and will use and reorganize them in neat piles or in clearly labeled bins so that you can easily find them when the time comes to use them.
