Part one of a series on garages explores garage storage and the effective use of storage cabinets.
Storage Cabinets: Take Back The Garage
We have a curious relationship with our garages in America. In other less acquisitive parts of the world, garages are for one thing and one thing only: a place to park and store motor vehicles of some kind. In America, however, we are very much a consumer culture. As a result, there is an inevitable tendency to get more and more stuff. Soon the garage is a storage facility, and the car instead of being inside the garage, is actually either parked outside on the street or in the driveway. That’s where storage cabinets come into play.
Installing storage cabinets is a practical method of getting rid of clutter in one of the areas of your home that it is most likely to accumulate: your garage. We’ve seen it all before. After all, we’ve been doing this since 1984. Most people’s garages look like a documentary about hoarding behavior. People get busy and stuff everything into either a cardboard box or a plastic storage bin with a nebulous promise of “I’ll sort it later.” Well, later never comes, and what starts as one cardboard box or storage bin soon becomes two storage bins or cardboard boxes, and then the matter gets more and more out of hand.
Garage Storage Cabinets: Cutting Through a Tangled Problem
Storage cabinets are one of the quickest and most efficient ways of clearing up clutter. Installing them can make the difference between stacks of boxes and a clear garage. Oh, make no mistake, you’re not off the hook. Just because you’ve put a bunch of stuff away doesn’t mean that you are free to get even more stuff. Our next article will explore strategies to minimize hoarding behavior.
For now, know that you have options. One of the best ones? Install garage storage cabinets.
