How much of a struggle is it in your garage to get from your car to the door of your house? Perhaps your garage has become so overrun with clutter that you can’t even park your car in there. If you reach a crisis in your garage with regard to clutter, then it’s time to get serious about organizing. That begins with literally removing every item from your garage out to the driveway. This will allow you to take stock of what you are going to keep and what you’re going to get rid of. Once you’ve made those decisions these organizing tips are going to help improve your garage a great deal.
Use Your Wall Space
Storage space is always at a premium in the garage. You might not have room to put in shelving units along the walls but that doesn’t mean you can’t use those walls for storage. Putting up sheets of pegboard allows you to hang all kinds of hooks where your tools can go. If you don’t want to use pegboard, then hang hooks in the studs behind the drywall. Just about anything you are keeping in storage can be hung on the wall with the right size hook.
Bring In Storage Cabinets
For storage cabinets at a hardware store that are specifically designed for a garage. Typically, these cabinets will have shelving units inside that can hold a lot of stuff. These cabinets are great to tuck in the corner. By using these cabinets, you don’t have to see all the stuff you’re keeping in storage. It makes things look a lot neater.
Use Metal Shelving for Pantry Items
Metal shelving in a garage works great for your pantry items. This is where the overflow of drinks, paper towels, dog food and other kitchen items can go. You definitely want to be able to glance at these items and know what your stock is like. Try to keep the same things on the same shelf as you replace them.
Use Shoe Racks
Your garage might be your home’s “mudroom.” This is where all the boots and dirty shoes go as opposed to coming in the house. To keep them organized, shoe racks can be lined up along the wall. The only trick with this is getting your family into the habit of actually putting their shoes on the racks!
