reorganizing your garageIt’s still summertime which is a perfect time for reorganizing your garage! The perfect time of year to go to the beach, get ice cream, or pull all that junk out of your garage and into the driveway. Better to reorganize your garage now than in the rainy Spring or cold Winter.

Here are some tips to help you turn your garage into an organized paradise that would make Marie Kondo proud. Okay, that might be too high a bar, but at least it won’t be a mess where you can literally get lost if you don’t leave a trail of breadcrumbs.

1. Toss: If you haven’t used it in a year, throw it away. Why waste space storing something you never use. We can all dream of the day when we’ll fix up that old bike or we’ll need that second edger because our long lost twin has returned and wants to edge our lawn with us but let’s be real. If it hasn’t moved in a year, move it out of your life. This is the first place to start when reorganizing your garage.

2. Donate: You may have bags of clothes and old toys and the like that you’ve been planning on donating that are just sitting there until you happen to be close to your chosen charity. What good will be close to your chosen charity do if the donatable goods are collecting dust in your garage? Bite the bullet and make that special trip to donate. You’ll help others and get them off your hands. It’s a Win-Win.

3. Sweep: Get all the dust and sand and mud that’s built up in your garage outside to wear it belongs. Sweeping is a lot of work but Cinderella swept all day and now she’s royalty so some sweeping won’t hurt you. What’s that you say? You can’t sweep because all your stuff covers the entire floor? Well, get that stuff out of your garage and into the driveway. The more you move something, the more honest you are about whether you really need it. If you don’t want to move it back into your garage, say goodbye and trash it or donate it.

4. Sort: Don’t just dump all relatively similar items together in a corner. A corner of sports-related junk and a corner of tool-related junk is still two piles of junk that you won’t be able to find anything it. Take the time to sort your nails and your screws, your tennis rackets and hockey sticks, your bike bumps and paint supplies. When each item has its own home, you’ll actually be able to find it. This will save you time and energy and give you one less thing to stress about in life.

Follow these tips when reorganizing your garage and next thing you know you’ll have the two-car garage that you never knew you had. Cleaning the garage can be a lot of work but the cleaner, more organized space will make your mind a little less cluttered and give you more energy to focus on what really matters, which is different for everybody but is definitely not hunting for a lost wrench in a cluttered garage.

10 WAYS TO INCREASE YOUR HOME VALUE THIS YEAR USING PAINT Improving the appearance of your home is one of the easiest ways to increase its value on the market and make it more appealing. Potential buyers will mostly judge your building on face value and they will make a decision based on how it looks to them. One of the best ways to do this is by using paint. Painting is a relatively cheap way to add value to your home and here are 10 ways you can do just that. • Repaint Your External Walls The exterior of your home is the first thing people see when they look at it. Broken surfaces and faded paint will make your house look much older than it really is. Give it a facelift by repainting the surface in a color that blends well with the surrounding landscape and your house will look as good as new. • Add some color to your bathroom A lot of people like to spend time in the bathroom and it is often one of the first places buyers check out in a home they are looking to buy. Paint the bathroom in bright colors that breathe new life into the place, glaze your tub to make it sparkle again and touch up the floor if necessary. • Paint your cabinets Brushing up the cabinets in your kitchen, basement and other places is a good way to make everything look new without replacing it. • Paint the areas around your home The value of your home depends on the area in which it is sitting. A well-painted house in a drab, dusty neighborhood looks both odd and out of place and is unlikely to make anyone pay more for it. Paint the curbs and walls close to you in cool well-blended colors to make it even more beautiful • Spray your doors The entrance to your home makes a lasting first impression. It is cheaper to spray your front door to make it stand out than replacing it entirely. A well-painted door could make all the difference to a potential buyer • Splash some paint on your living room The living room is a very important space in your home. It is usually the first room anyone comes into so painting every surface in matching colors can get your house some more money on the market. • Give your vinyl sliding a makeover Your vinyl sliding is an important part of the exterior of your home. Replacing it entirely might be out of the question depending on your budget but you can apply the right color of paint to make it look a lot better along with the rest of your building. • Apply an extra coat on all internal walls Repaint the walls in all rooms within your house to make it more presentable. A dull interior completely negates your bright exterior and will leave your buyers disappointed. • Repaint your ceilings where possible It is easy to forget that upper surfaces too need to be painted. Throw a dash of paint on your ceiling surfaces to make sure that it all looks tidy. Most of the time, a mixture of cream and white along with shades of other colors bring the best out of your home. Finding this balance will improve the aesthetic and financial value of your home.basement remodel finished
