4 Steps to Conquering Your Garage

If you’re lucky enough to have a garage, it can be a blessing or a curse, depending on how you use it. Garages are often stash sites for all of our overflow items and quickly become cluttered and unuseful spaces. Organizing your garage can be a game changer. Here are some ideas to get you started.

1. Start with Shelving

Maximizing space vertically with shelving is the way to go in the garage. This wire shelving system from Wayfair will get you organized in a jiffy. If you’re lacking floor space go for a more lofty approach with this ceiling mounted system!

You can also hit up Home Depot for a $2.81 shelf bracket and a $14 shelf board. When you’re mounting them, make sure to find the studs and use the proper drywall anchors. 

2. On Track

Track systems are the all-in-one solution for a variety of items. Bikes, sports gear, tools and holiday items can easily be stored in one curated area. 

3. DIY Yard Tools

Want to get your rakes, brooms and other yard items all squared away? Two 2x4s and some pegs will get the job done—or purchase a complete unit with a bar and sliding hooks.

4. Holiday Decor & Keepsakes

Inexpensive clear bins and labels will help you get your head around every holiday item and where Grandma’s quilts are stored.
