If you are a parent of many kids who play sports or an active individual invested in many different activities, you probably have sports gear all around your house or garage. The lack of organization and feeling of clutter is enough to make any parent or individual crazy. Some people may even feel like they do not have enough room in their house to store all of their sports gear. Fortunately, there are ways to make room in your home even if you feel like you do not have the space. The key is to find a spot for your items and keep it organized.
SORT YOUR SPORTS GEAR
Before you even search for a spot, it is wise to gather all of your or your family's sports gear and sort it first. Most people choose to sort their sports gear by sport or functionality. For example, if some of your kids play baseball and others play volleyball, you should make sure that the baseball gear stays together and is separate from volleyball gear.
Additionally, sorting through your sports gear is a great time to declutter. You may declutter by donating any equipment that you or your family grew out of. Plenty of local charities will take anything a person is willing to give. You may even donate old equipment to a charity specifically designed for sports. If you need some extra cash, you may even hold on to your old sports gear and sell it at an estate sale.
