Does your garage look like a disaster zone? Do you find it a challenge to get from the car to your kitchen door? Do you have a hard time finding the things been keeping in storage? If the answer is “yes” to any one of those questions, then clearly it’s time to get your garage organized. This will take a little time and effort on your part but the investment of an afternoon can make a huge difference in your garage. Here’s what you’ll need to do:
In order for you to see exactly what you’re working with you’ll need to remove everything from the garage. Fortunately, you have a driveway that is designed for this very purpose. As you pull everything out you may want to put it into category piles. For instance one pile for sporting equipment and another for tools. Once that is completed, you can see exactly what should stay and what should go.
Make Use of the Walls
Your garage walls are the perfect spots for hanging up most of what you’re keeping in storage in there. You can either put up designated hooks directly into the wall or hang up large sections of pegboard. The advantage of having pegboard is that you can easily move around the hooks as you replace certain items. Once you’ve designated a hook for a particular item that is where it should go after every use. This is an important habit for you and your family to get into.
Cleanup the workbench
If you have a workbench in your garage, then it is a major culprit for clutter. There are plenty of options when it comes to organizing loose items like nails and screws. It might be helpful to buy a mini vac and keep it plugged in right on the workbench. Directly above the workbench could be another pegboard for your tools. Just to make things clear, once the tools are hung you can trace around them forming an outline so you and everyone else in the house knows exactly what goes where.
Use Rafter Space
If you are in need of extra storage space then look up. There are many shelving units designed specifically to hang from rafters. You can even DIY rafter storage with some sturdy chains, hooks and plywood.
