If Your Garage Needs a Map You Need Help

Our garage is one of the most tortured spaces of the house. Not only do we keep our cars there, we use it as a dumping ground for all our junk( which, of course, we never admit is junk). But the irony is, when you actually do need the items in your garage, you can never seem to find anything as the place is such a dump! That is why it is necessary to gather some organized garage ideas and implement them so that you get what you need, when you need it. Here are some tips that may help:

Divide and Conquer

Our garage storage items can be best termed miscellaneous. You find everything from sports goods to garden tools, from hammers to paint. When you finally take the initiative to organize the garage, the work at hand could seem quite overwhelming. The best way to organize the garage is to first divide the pile into separate categories. The common categories are usually sports goods, power tools, garden tools, camping gear, decorations, etc. A very important thing to remember is: discard the things you no longer need or is beyond use. If you have a lot of stuff, a whole day could be gone in the sorting itself.

Allocate Storage Space

Once you have categorized the stuff, it is time to think of how best to store them. There are some pretty simple DIY garage storage tools you can incorporate. It could be a giant trash can for some of the sporting goods, or you could invest in some proper storage equipments. Some large baskets, some hooks, brackets and shelves will do you good. One good way to incorporate all these little tools is covering a portion of the garage wall with sturdy, thick plywood. You can fit all your hooks, brackets and baskets on this wall. The advantage of the ply is that you can rearrange the order of the various attachments as and when you please without damaging the wall.

Label it Right

The labeler can become your next best friend after this experience. Clearly mark the different areas of the garage housing the different products. When you attach a specific place for each of your tools, it becomes very easy to find them, and also know immediately when they are missing. This is one of those home organization ideas that really help keep things in order. When you apply this tactic in the garage, it just looks a little less neurotic. Imagine labeling everything inside the house. If you think about, it does not look very sane!

These garage ideas should help you clear the clutter and a lot of floor space in the garage, so that the next time you need to fix something, you will no longer have the excuse of not finding your tools.
