Top Reasons Why It's Important to Hire Garage Organizers! (And a funny story too!)
Ever wish there was a garage organizing service near you to help deal with a less-than-fun task? Well keep on reading!
People think I’m kidding when I tell this story, but this is literally what my husband and I agreed to before we got married. I don’t remember how the conversation came about, but 15+ years ago before we tied the knot, we were discussing what that "one thing" is, no matter what, that we just want to get out there so that the other person knows this is a nail in the coffin to our marriage. Mine was “Don’t ever ask me to iron or even imply I do any such thing.” His was “I always want to be able to park our cars in the garage, no matter how many kids we have.”
Seems silly now, but I can confidently say that we have stuck by both of these, and 3 kids later, we just celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary. We are by no means experts on marriage, but I share this story with you because you may think it’s odd what we asked of each other, but here is why... My husband is from New York and went to college in Buffalo, so imagine the winters he dealt with! So when we met and were about to get married, at the time living in Massachusetts but moving to Ohio, winters were cold and he wanted to not have to shovel a car out anymore. He wanted to spend his time doing the things he enjoyed! We have kept this mantra throughout our move to Texas and beyond.
Here are the top 3 reasons to hire garage organizers, no matter where you live:
1. Garage Organizers keep you consistent in clearing out the clutter!
How? Hire Decluttered™ to come clean out your garage! Seriously, I can’t tell you what a difference this has made and how it has forced us to always clear out the clutter and not use our garage as extra storage space. Plus, with a maintenance program, they can help you through various stages of the year as seasons change and kids grow.
2. Garage Organizers help avoid fighting!
This task has been difficult but we’ve avoided fighting, had space to add all of the accessories and bikes over the years for our kids, added camping equipment for adventures and set aside space for projects. Decluttered™ has even come to my own house to help me deal with paper organizing from my Dad’s stuff that was stored in the garage after he passed earlier this year, and they were able to use part of the garage to pack us up when we moved in the spring, in order to stage the house to sell.
3. Garage Organizers can help better define the garage space.
Decluttered™ also has a dedicated team of professional organizers that are simply the best garage organizers!
They love to help create whatever it is clients need, whether it's a home gym, extra storage space, a rotation for party supplies for entertaining, areas for the kids bikes and toys, or just being able to get two cars in the garage.
Whatever the purpose of your garage is, we can help!
Curious about the ironing piece of this puzzle? I’m proud to say that my husband has never, and I mean never, asked me to iron anything of his. And we continue to work together to make sure we can park our cars in the garage. In fact, in our new house we just got a storage shed for our ride-on mower and we are finishing up organizing our garage this weekend.
