Tackle the kitchen like a pro with this helpful guide.
You would never leave tools strewn out across the living room floor, allow piles of dirty pots to accumulate in the kitchen sink, or ignore a decades-worth of dust in the dining room. But the garage tends to be a very different story. Garages and sheds are notoriously messy, packed-to-the-brim spaces, and even the tidiest among us are guilty of allowing them to become cluttered with garden tools, sports equipment, and future "projects." As they say, out of sight, out of mind. In fact, according to a poll of homeowners, one out of every four Americans are unable to fit a car into their overflowing garages. Furthermore, 20 percent of those polled reported that messy garages have even caused arguments with their spouses. Which is surprising, considering 92 percent of respondents described their homes as being somewhat or very organized. Luckily, a little organization can make a big difference. Whether you're looking for a complete overhaul or a quick tidy-up, there's plenty you can do this weekend. With a little creativity and elbow grease (and our ideas!), you can transform your garage or shed into an organized, functional space. Read on for our favorite tidying-up tips.
