Garage Organization Tips
1. Hold a Fall Garage Cleaning Session
One of the best garage organization and cleaning tips you’ll ever get is to hold a fall purging session of any unwanted items. After all, the fewer things you have to organize, the sooner the task can be completed.
2. Create a Garage Organization Strategy
Now that you’ve gotten rid of unwanted items and clutter, it’s time to figure out how to organize your garage. Naturally, a large part of what you’ll be able to accomplish will depend on how much space you have. For example, large garages may allow enough room for tool closets or several sets of shelves. With smaller garages, on the other hand, you might have to get creative with how you use wall and ceiling space.
3. Think Vertically For Storage Options
When organizing your garage, you’ll want to try to keep the floors clear. One great way to do this is by making use of all of the spare wall space in your garage. Shelves can be used to hold storage bins, boxes, sporting equipment and so forth. In addition, you can place paints, oils and any chemical products on upper shelves so they’re well out of reach of little hands. You can either buy units or install simple shelving depending on the size of your garage.
4. Break Out the Label Maker
Your storage will be 10 times more effective if you know what’s in every box and bin your garage holds. Label each box so that you can easily see the contents and don’t have to rummage through multiple containers to find snow boots or indoor soccer cleats. It’s also a good idea to place labels above shelves and pegboards where tools are stored, so you know where to return items.
