If your garage is merely a repository for the overflow from your kitchen, living room, bedrooms and beyond, you're missing out on a major opportunity. Your garage doesn't have to be a place where your old stuff goes to die; in fact, it can be a place where your dreams come to life...with the right planning and resources, of course. Here's what you need to know.
From Modest Makeover...
Perhaps you lack the time, money or resources to pull off a full-on garage redo at this point in time. If so, you're not alone. But just because you're not ready for a giant leap doesn't mean you can't take a step in the right direction.
Stop for a minute and think about what's currently occupying space in your garage. Do you need it? Do you use it? Before your imagination can go wild, a reality check is in order. After all, you can only make use of the space if it's free and clear of the clutter that occupies most garages. Set aside a day to triage the contents of your garage, removing everything and sorting it into keep, discard and donate piles. (It pays to be ruthless when inventorying your garage: when in doubt, throw it out.)
Casino night in your garage? Don't just dream it; do it!
