Stop treating your garage as a receptacle where you are free to toss everything that doesn’t have a place in your house. Though you need a whole day or even an entire weekend to restore order, these are some tips to handle garage organization.

1. Categorize the Items

First thing first, you need categories for the items in your garage. If you can’t decide where to start, consider getting everything out of the garage and clean it throughout, including every nook and cranny.

Evaluate, group the contents, and keep them inside cardboard boxes – don’t forget to label them.

To make it easier for you to get the item you are looking for, storage with a container that is equipped with a label is very appropriate and you can imitate it in a garage organization. Image blue container storage from diynetwork

2. Keep, Trash, and Donate

You will likely find random items in your garage that you don’t even remember how you have them. Create three piles: keep, trash, and donate. Then if you think you don’t need them, assign them to donation or trash piles. 

Avoid messy garage organizations that will make you uncomfortable in this room. Discard items that are no longer suitable for use. Image messy garage from justagirlandherblog

3. Take an Inventory

You need to make a note of all items that you’re storing. This way will make your next task way easier, especially when you randomly need to find things to use them.

Having a small note for inventory in the garage is a smart idea to make it easier for you to do your next job. This idea is also very practical and easy to make. Image maximize wall space from organizedliving

4. Redesign Your Layout

The most fun part of the garage organization is redesigning your garage’s layout. Discover the available space and place each category based on the frequency of use.

5. Extra Storage

If you need extra storage, maximize the wall space – take advantage of the vertical space, and consider installing a built-in cabinet. You can also make the most of the overhead space by adding mount-to-ceiling shelves.

Make storage in the garage as much and as widely as possible to store all the items you have safely and not easily damaged. Vertical rack is highly recommended. Image large rack storage from familyhandyman
