6 Easy Steps to an Organized Storage Area (Garage, Basement, Attic)

Updated: Nov 23, 2019

I'm shaking my head in disbelief that it's the last week of the Purge Party!!! How can this be?? Time really does fly when you are having fun....although cleaning and decluttering your home may not be your idea of "fun" (unlike me who is a total organizing weirdo!), I hope that the work and effort you've put into your Purge Party has paid off by having a more simplified home that you love!

You've probably caught the hang of the process of the Purge Party, but in case you are arriving late to this simplicity soiree, I'll give you a quick run down!

And if you've missed any of the other Purge Parties and want to catch up, I'll put the links at the end!

So here we go...

1. Visualize

Before you begin a single thing...your very first job is to get a crystal clear vision of what you want for your garage (or basement or attic or whatever storage spot you have in your home)...for me, my goal is to have a garage that is totally tidy and super organized while containing no junk!

The garage is an easy landing spot for things you aren't sure whether you want to keep or not...it's the land of "I might use it one day". Although the garage works for storing seasonal items, I don't want mine to be filled with items I'm not sure about. Everything must have a purpose and add value to my family's life.

2. Sing a Song

Okay, maybe singing ain't your your thang', but at least set the mood with some upbeat tunes!! What's your jam...heavy metal? gangster rap? old fashioned Honky Tonk? Well, girl turn on whatever motivates you to dive in to that mess! Isn't it amazing how music can completely alter how you feel? So get going and pump up the jam!🎶
