Even though winter is definitely upon us, it’s never too late to get organized for the season. Keep reading for some simple tips for late winter organization, and you’ll be glad you did.
When it comes to late winter organization, most of the action will be in your garage. You probably have at least a shovel or two that could be hung up somewhere out of the way. But keep an eye out for spring, too. Now is a great time to put up a rack that can hang on to your winter shovels, any of the ones you need when the temperature drops, hoes, weed whackers, and everything else. This is an easy renovation that you can do on your own, and it will make spring cleaning that much easier.
With the holidays over, your decorations are probably down, but are they safely stored and out of the way? Take some time to stock up on bins and other containers that you can organize your decorations in until next year and, again, where they won’t be in the way. Of course, you can also make the decision to throw away some of the decorations that you know have seen their last year.
It might be helpful to put up some shelves right now, too. With all the items you keep in your garage, a couple of shelves can easily help keep everything better organized. Remember, too, that vermin and pests love clutter, and your garage is one of the most accessible areas of your home. By keeping things up off the floor, you give them one less place to hide.
Whether you want to take care of a current situation or you’re simply preparing for spring, it’s never too late for winter organization. Use the above tips to get some ideas on how you can get a better handle on all your things.
