As you begin to get the clutter organized and under control in your garage, you'll begin to experience the benefits. Although you may not often realize how much the clutter kept in your garage drains your energy, when you begin to clear it out, you'll feel as if you have a larger home. Your cars will be happier if they can park there (and so will you, come winter mornings). You'll also save money when your supplies are easy to access because you won't accidentally purchase things you already own. Who knows — by making your garage orderly and finding safer ways to store the dangerous items, you could even save a life. Just as we never really know how much clutter costs us, it is also hard to know, until we begin to tackle it, how much can be gained by bringing order to these often-overlooked spaces.
