Organize Your Garage In Just 15 Minutes, Because You Have Better Things To Do (VIDEO)

When we think of organizing the garage, we imagine spending the whole day sifting through boxes of old toys, worn clothes and well, plain old junk. But in the video above professional organizer Peter Walsh says it can be done in just 15 minutes.

How can this be? Well, first he recommends making a list of everything you can remember that's actually in the garage. Once you get in, if you didn't remember it was there, you probably don't need it. When you get ready to tackle the place, play five songs, which roughly equals 15 minutes. Place "forgotten items" into either a recycling or donation box and head to your closest charity drop-off.
