Top 5 Organizing Tips for Your Garage

Image title

The garage is one of the most undervalued yet essential parts of a home. In the past, it was just used to park cars, but today, it is used either as a storage haven or a junk magnet. Unorganized items in a garage can become clutter in no time, and this clutter can be dangerous, especially if you have children. 

Undoubtedly, organizing things in a garage is more than a challenge, it's very crucial. If you are looking for some great ideas to organize your garage, then read the tips below:

1. Decluttering

Before you start organizing your garage, you need to declutter all the odd items that you’ve collected over the years. This is one of the biggest, messy, and time-consuming tasks. So, you need to dedicate your weekend or one full day to declutter and organize your garage.  

To start with this process, take everything out of the garage and clean everything. Once you are done with the cleaning, go through every single item and sort them into four piles - toss, sell, donate, and keep. Avoid using items that you think you might use someday. 

2. Group Similar Items Together

Once you’ve cleaned the clutter, group similar items. This will help you to find things easily, and you don't even have to make extra effort to open several different boxes every time you look for a specific thing.

You can put different sizes of nails or screws in an organizer with compartments (or even a baby food jar) to find the right size when required. 

3. Store on Walls

Assuming your garage is unfinished, add a layer of plywood over the bare studs of the drywall. It can double the storage capacity of the wall. You can even buy affordable shelving units to place paintbrushes, odd containers, nails, paint cans, etc. Properly use the shelves to organize all your home repair products and accessories. 

4. Get Hooks 

Placing hooks is one of the most affordable and easiest ways to organize your garage. You can purchase different types of hooks for your garage walls to either hold up ladders, pitchforks, rakes, or shovels. This saves your garage some space and makes things look much more organized.

5. Use Pegboards

To make the most out of the wall space, you can use pegboards. These are quite effective to organize tools, hang shovels, rakes, and to organize cleaning supplies like dusters, mops, and brooms. 

In The End 

The best part of organizing your garage is that you can be as creative as you like and stay within your budget. These are a few affordable ideas that can be implemented over a weekend or in a day or two.
