If you walk into your garage and it looks like a tornado has gone through it, take time to get things back in order again. Below are two ways you can do this. When you are finished, you may even have room to park your car in there:
Shelving is one of the best things you can use in your garage. Polymer shelving is durable and made of a very strong plastic. You can purchase these shelves in a variety of sizes. Some come with casters and wheels so you can move it around your garage. This is also helpful because it raises the shelving up so you can clean underneath it much easier.
If you buy some shelving, and then realize you need more, you can usually purchase more to add on to the unit. They will securely attach to the sides of the current shelving.
Put plastic containers with lids on the shelves to store your gardening supplies, sporting equipment, word working tools, etc. Purchase containers that have rollers so you can easily slide them in and out of the shelf. Use clear containers to make it easier for you to find things.
Polymer is strong enough that you can put just about anything on these shelves. Look at the manual to see how much weight your shelves can hold.
Use Peg Board
Pegboard can be your best friend in your garage. You can purchase it at most home supply stores in a variety of sizes. Purchase one large piece of pegboard. Once you get it home, you can use an electric or hand saw to cut it to the size you need so you will end up with more than one. While you are at the home supply store, purchase some of S-hooks.
Place the pegboard where things are easily accessible to you. Once it is installed, put the S-hooks in the small holes, and hang things from them, such as hats, tennis rackets, etc. If you have some small things, put them into a bag with a string and then hang it on the pegboard. Spray paint the pegboard to give your garage some color.
Besides doing this, get the family together to clean the garage out. You may be surprised at some of the things you will find there. When you are finished, consider having a garage sale to get rid of these things in your organized and clean garage.Share
