When you come home and realize you can’t fit your car inside your garage because of random items taking up space, you know it’s time to get organized.
Organizing your garage may seem like a daunting task, but with a few helpful tips, you’ll be done in no time!
Tips to organize your garage
Go vertical – Placing your items from top to bottom instead of side to side will save you space in your garage.
Install shelving systems – Regardless of your garage size, shelving units will help you keep your items organized and off the ground. By putting things up in the air, you’ll give your vehicles enough room to be in your garage along with your belongings.
Purchase heavy-duty storage containers – The best way to store your things in your garage is inside heavy-duty all-weather storage bins. You can find these bins at your local Home Depot and Lowe’s.
Hang items – If you own bikes, a hose, lawn chairs, or strollers, you should have these items hung on the side of your garage for easy access while keeping them off the ground. Because these items are seasonal, it makes sense to have them stored away from your vehicles and garage entry points until you need them.
After you’ve spent time organizing your items so your vehicles can fit into your garage, you may be wondering what you should do with the extra items that you didn’t have room to store but still want to keep.
Renting a monthly self-storage unit will give you an extra ‘garage’ to hold the excess. Most self-storage facilities offer various sized units so you can choose the best one for your needs. Plus, they are affordable.
