- Start by sorting and decluttering.
A garage floor covered in random items can be frustrating, time-consuming, and even dangerous if you’re not careful. To make the most of your garage and the items you store in it, start by sorting and decluttering. Put items you no longer need into boxes for donation or disposal. Sort items into keepsakes, tools, items for donation, sporting equipment, etc.
- Make a plan before you start organizing.
When you’ve decluttered, sorted, and everything is ready is out on the floor, consider what items you need to store and what type of storage solutions would work best for your space. Search Amazon and your favorite online stores for storage solutions specifically made to fit your needs - tool boxes, metal strips for wall mounting, wreath and holiday containers, color coded solutions, and printed labels are great ideas for helping you organize your garage.
- Use clear containers and label them for easy organization.
Many people find that clear containers are the best solution for storing away garage items in a manner that will help you find what you need quickly the next time you’re looking for something you’ve stored!
- Install shelves and wall racks to maximize space.
You can also hang tools or other items on the walls, and you can designate a purpose for each wall in your garage!
- Divide your garage into zones based on the type of items that need to be stored.
Sorting out items before storing is worthwhile! By dividing up items into similar categories, you can conquer the entire garage one usage type at a time.
