Tricks to Organizing Your Garage Like a Pro

  • July 10, 2015

Do you throw random boxes and tubs of “I’ll go through it later” items into your garage? It seems most garages these days are full of containers and bins of items that often the owner was not even aware they still had. While spring may be gone, do not skip another day to clean up your garage. Here are some helpful tips to organizing your garage now!
 
Pegboards – Pegboards are a cheap and easy way to hang things along the wall of your garage. While not meant for exceptionally heavy items, it can be used for tools, small shelving, and garden tools. Put pegs in the holes and just starting hanging!
 
Toolbox – Investing in a toolbox may be one of the best ways to get your mismatched array of tools in order. With unique compartments and drawers, toolboxes are often on wheels and compact so as to improve your use of space in any garage.
 
Labeled Storage Boxes – Line boxes up on shelving along the walls of the garage. Label the boxes clearly for what is inside. Avoid digging through countless boxes later by labeling appropriately as you clean.
 
Clear Storage Containers – Hate the idea of labeled boxes taking over your garage? Try see-through bins instead. This way you can clearly see the boxes’ contents without having to dig or label.
 
Garage Sale – Most likely you will uncover many unused items while organizing your garage. What better time to either sell these items at a garage sale or donate them to a local charity. Make sure your organizing initiative includes cleansing your garage of items you no longer need.
 
Fear your garage no more! Figure out a plan and stick to it. Set a day aside to really dig in and get your garage organized like you have always wanted.
