Holly Reich of Vroomgirls recently wrote about getting the garage organized.  She consulted with Lisa Lennard, an organizing expert at California Closets (  She offered these 5 tips to get the process going.

  1. Clean – Take everything out of the garage and giving the space a good cleaning.  Painting might be a good idea and this is the perfect time to do it.
  2. Group – Set up piles for various categories such as tools, home improvement, sports equipment, seasonal items,  gardening items, and so on.  Also, don’t forget to set a pile for donations and one for trash.
  3. Assess – Look at the items in each pile and determine if you really need it, want it ,or can do without it. Try to eliminate as much as you can.
