messy garageSummer is here! This is the season we’ve been waiting for all year. While we certainly hope you’re finding time to enjoy the great outdoors with loved ones, this is also the time to be productive.

The nice weather makes now an opportune time to take care of the odds and ends around your home, so roll up your sleeves! 

Here are 3 projects you could do around the house now that the cold weather is behind us. 

1. Haul Your Junk From the Garage

Another year has passed. Is your garage still a mess? Now is your chance to rid yourself of the clutter. Decide what you want to keep, and see if there’s anything you can donate or sell. 

Pile whatever’s left into a dumpster and it will be out of your hair in no time.  

2. Clean Up Your Log Pile

Many homeowners have a pile of logs and brush sitting in their backyard somewhere. However, if year after year goes by and your pile continues to grow, it’s time to get rid of it.

It’s especially important to clear this away because your woodpile could become a haven for wasps, rodents, or termites. Yikes!

3. Closet Clean-Out

Whether it’s your bedroom closet, linen closet, or hall closet, chances are, it could use some love. Go through and see if you’re holding onto anything that you don’t use (or, to borrow phrasing from Japanese organizing consultant Marie Kondo, does not “spark joy”).

But just because you don’t have use for something any more, doesn’t mean it’s junk! See if you can sell your old vacuum on Craigslist or organize a garage sale to get rid of those old clothes, books, or mismatched dishes. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
