Episode 31 – Decluttering a garage

In the podcast, Lesley and Ingrid talk about decluttering a garage. How do you declutter, sort and organise your garage so it works as a space again.


Garages were originally build to hold cars but people have so much stuff these days that garages have become dumping grounds for items that no longer fit in your home and cars end up outside because they can't fit in anymore.
