How To: Organize Your Garage

Is you garage dirty, cluttered, or even unusable? Can you find the things you need? Do boxes or items occasionally fall off shelves without warning? Are they even on shelves?

Organizing your garage might seem like a big undertaking, but it can really be very simple.

First, plan your space. Decide what you want to use your garage for: storing your car, storing stuff that doesn’t fit in the house, a workshop, a home gym? Pick a purpose first, and build your space accordingly.

Second, sort what’s already there. This is probably the toughest part. Go through everything already in your garage and decide if you really need it. Throw out or donate what’s broken or what you don’t need, want or use anymore.

Group like items together. Put all your tools, clothes, holiday decorations, yard equipment, gardening supplies, weights etc. together in groups. Things will be easier to find if they’re categorized this way.

Find a place for everything. Every item or category should have a “home” in your garage. You can store things in boxes or clear plastic bins, on the walls using pegboard, on shelves, or even hanging from the ceiling.  If an item gets moved, it should always be put back in it’s place. This way, you’ll know exactly where to find it and your garage will stay organized.
