Organizing your garage doesn’t have to be a challenge if you keep a few tricks and tips in mind. Before you begin organizing the area, you need to go through all of the tools and other items that you have so that you can get rid of the things that you don’t need or use and the things that are broken. If you have a storage shed, then some of your larger belongings and the things that are used in the yard can go in the shed.
An easy way to get organized is to use garage storage boxes. Don’t get boxes that are too big for the items that you have because they will only take up space that could be used for something else. When you put items in a storage box, label the outside so that you can easily see what’s in it instead of spending time searching through something that might not have what you need. Getting rid of the things that are no longer needed and cleaning out your garage gives you a clean slate to work with.
If you don’t have a lot of floor space, then hang pegboards on the walls. Get hooks that can be placed on the board so that you can hang tools and cords. You can also hang rolls of tape and paintbrushes on the hooks, getting them out of the way so that you can keep other items on the counters. Slat walls are an option to consider as well. These will allow you to install larger hooks and devices that can be used to hang bikes, power tools, and larger items that might be too heavy to hang on a pegboard. Use your vertical space to build cabinets to keep small boxes in and items that tend to clutter the counters.
