Build shelving in your garage for storage items. This will keep things from being scattered on the ground like sports equipment and keep things like shoes out of the way. You can either build this storage yourself or simply purchase plastic shelving that you can assemble yourself.

 

Go Pegboard Crazy!

Pegboards are AWESOME for keeping similar items together and organized efficiently. This will also help with keeping important items such as drills out of the reach of children. Create individual places for each item and give each item their own “home.”

 

Plastic Storage Bins

Plastic storage bins are great for keeping things like seasonal decorations together. This type of storage is ideal for items you do not need to access quickly or only every so often. All you have to do is pack it all up in the container, label and then stow away!

 

Use the Ceiling

Your ceiling is a great place to store things like your bikes. Bikes are a larger item that makes it easy to grab when you need and hook back up when you’re done using. This allows for out of the way storage and more room for your car.

 

Utilize Magnetsstorage

Almost all small tools like pliers, screwdrivers, and drill bits are magnetic so why not hook them up to a magnetic strip for easy finding and use?! You can even set the desired height you would like them at so they are out of reach of small children but at perfect eye-level for you when you need to find that specific screwdriver you need!

 

Color Code

Vertical Storagestorage

Vertical storage is great for cleaning supplies like brooms, mops, and dustpans. Since these items are thin themselves, hanging them one after the other on the wall does not take up much space.
