1. Take Advantage of Wall Space

Don’t let wall space in your garage go to waste. Buy inexpensive pieces of pegboard and create a hanging storage space for your tools and similar items. Another great option is pre-built storage racks, suitable for hanging.

2. Use Storage Bins

Plastic storage bins are a great tool for keeping everything in your garage organized. They’re durable, waterproof and many styles feature locking lids to keep contents from spilling if they tip.

These bins tend to be stackable, which makes it easier to store  small, loose items efficiently. Stacking eliminates the need to bend in an uncomfortable position to find what you’re looking for.

Grouping similar items together is smart, because it saves time and frustration. For example, if you generally scatter tools throughout your garage, it makes it necessary to comb the entire area to locate the item you’re searching for.

4. Toss Things You Don’t Need

A common problem with garage organization is owning too much stuff. Go through everything and toss or donate the items you don’t use anymore. Let’s face it, the less you store, the easier it is to keep track of things.

  1. Our garage is a mess right now with all the yard equipment and my husbands project car. A garden shed sounds like a wonderful idea to help organize it all.

  2. My son put in pre-built storage racks and built shelving so that they have room to store their Christmas Decorations, camping gear etc etc. That helps a lot, however come summer then there is literally not a spare inch on the garage floor. Their cars are parked outside and inside is the camping gear, bikes and all the other summer gear. It’ll soon all get packed away now that fall is on the way.

  3. My husband built a big garage and he keeps it organized by putting little in it and instead it goes in the basement. lol True statement !
