It’s Day 21 of the 31 Days of 10-minute Decluttering Tips Challenge. Today we’ll be going through our yard equipment to eliminate things we don’t need from our lives and home, clearing the clutters so that we can better enjoy life. 

10 minute purging tips for decluttering yard equipment and gardening tools.

Let me honest. It is brutally cold weather where I am. It didn’t occur to me until just now that going through yard equipment may not be the best job to do in January. Sheepish grin. If it’s brutally cold where you are, take today to go back and work again on one of our previous 20 purging tasks. You can come back to today’s task in April when it’s not dangerous to be outside.  Bu-uut, if you’re up for it, let’s tackle purging our yard equipment today.  

Clearing Clutter – Tips for Purging Yard Equipment

Grab the 6 decluttering bags you created earlier and the free printable Decluttering Clutter Checklist.  Let’s head out to the garage or tool shed to start purging. 

Take Everything Out- Remember we’re doing this in 10 minutes. Only take out as much as you can go through in that time. You can come back to the other items another time you have 10 minutes (and it’s not below freezing outside). Lay the items you take out on the ground or work bench.

Group Like Items Together – Quickly group like items together. Put all the rakes together, all the gardening gloves together, all the empty plastic flower pots together, and so on. 

Evaluate – Look at each group you’ve created. Are there any broken items? They need to go. Do you have more rakes than you have people in your family? Do you really need all of them? Do you have a big pile of empty black plastic flower pots falling over in the corner? Unless you’re a big gardener (and need them to transplant plants), you need to recycle those containers. Keep one or two if you’re stressing over getting rid of them all, but most of them need to go. 

Purge – Remove items you don’t need to keep and place them in one of your 6 purging bags. If you have items that you will commit to selling in a yard sale this coming spring, you can keep them, but otherwise make sure you get rid of those items this week. 

Put Everything Away – Put the items you’ve decided to keep back away.

Garden Tool Storage Products

When searching for garden tool storage, it’s essential to consider durability and functionality. Look for storage solutions made from sturdy materials such as steel or weather-resistant plastic that can withstand outdoor elements and protect your tools from rust or corrosion.

Also consider versatility. Choose for storage that offers adjustable shelving, hooks, and compartments to accommodate various types of tools and equipment. This allows your storage to grow and change as your requirements do.

Don’t overlook the importance of portability. Consider whether you’d like storage solutions with wheels or handles for easy maneuverability around your yard or garden. This allows you to transport your tools conveniently and keeps them organized while working on different projects throughout your outdoor space.
