Did you know your garage can alter the tone of your mood without you even realizing it? That’s why it’s important to keep this part of our home clutter-free. For many of us, the garage is the first thing we see when we pull into our driveway after arriving home from a long day at work or after an out-of-town trip. When you see your house, your first thought should be, “I’m so happy to be home!”
What you do not want are thoughts of frustration and annoyance because you just tripped over a bike or had to dodge a trash bin to get into your house. Maybe the mere sight of your garage door stresses you out because you know behind it hides all the clutter and mess you are going to have to deal with someday. Clutter causes stress and anxiety. Don’t let those be the first feelings you have when you drive into your driveway!
Use these tips to get motivated and make decluttering the garage a little less tedious.
If you are lucky enough to have a garage, treat it like an extension of your home because it is! Don’t use it as a dumping ground and then close the door behind you. It’s important to declutter, organize and treat your garage with love so it always seems to say, “Welcome home!”
