10 Easy Tips to Organize Your Garage
Pre-Organizing Your Garage
- Set a place, where you will put all the items that you use on the go like jackets, shoes, bags and so on. Store these quick access things on hanging hooks or racks, where you can easily grab them, when going in and out of the house. The perfect position is near the door, which is a natural transition zone.
- Put the objects that you use on a daily basis, like dog food, close to the entrance or in an easy access position.
- Choose a place where you can keep things with unusual shape and size like tall, long or thin items. This works especially well for all types of yard equipment. This is a perfect storage solution for small spaces.
- Put the large objects or things that you rarely use out of the way, in the distant corners or on the higher shelves. Your main purpose is to free up space for items that you frequently use, such as sport equipment or maintenance tools like brooms, electrical chords, or garden hoses.
- If you like working on your own projects, you should also think of a workplace. It does not matter if it is gardening or woodworking.
- You will need additional area for your favorite hobby.
De-Clutter the Space
- Before organizing the space, take everything out.
- Go through all the items and sort them out.
- Group your possessions in four categories: keep, sell, donate, and throw away. It might take a day, a whole weekend or even two, depending on the amount of clutter.
- It is always a good idea to involve the whole family in the process.
- Divide the job in small tasks. In this way the process will be less overwhelming.
- Be sure you have enough plastic bags or boxes where you can collect your possessions.
- Do not forget to put tags, so you can easily spot and identify each item or group of items.
Cabinets and Shelves
Consider a Loft
Organize Your WorkplaceThe central piece in garage spaces is often the working desk. Ideally, you have or will choose a table with adjustable height and wheels so it can be moved around (wheel locks are an important safety feature). Having a portable and easy to move workbench will give you plenty of options when you want to change things around or just get better access for bigger projects.
Don’t Lose Anything
- Organize the shelves.
- Use magnetic strips to display your tools.
- For the smaller pieces like bolts and nuts, get jars or canisters. Remember to label these so you can find the item you need quickly.
- Get a few metal buckets where you can store random medium sized items like old toys or gardening tools.
- Move seasonal items to the front of shelves/lofts, like coolers or skis, where you can get to them easily. When out of season they go to the back of shelves/lofts.
The Sports Area
- Buy organizing furniture specifically designed for sports equipment. If you do not want to spend money, simple create your own, customized for your personal needs.
- Bike and helmet racks will save you a lot of space, without sucking up your budget.
- Get a steel standing frame that can handle the heavy sports equipment.
- Ball claws are the perfect storage idea for a family that loves basketball and football.
- Lofts or high shelves are a great location for camping gear.
