17 Garage Organization Tips

Make room for your car and lawn equipment with these garage organization tips.


| January/February 2014


Oh, the garage! I let my husband handle this area of our house. It is the one room he actually loves to organize. Is it a dream of yours to pull your car into a clean, organized garage at the end of a long day? You can make that dream a reality with a little organizing and maybe a lot of tossing. If you currently cannot fit your vehicle in the garage, you probably have too much stuff. Consider recycling, selling or moving items to a separate storage shed.

The obvious functions of your garage are parking and storage for garden supplies, outdoor toys, sports equipment and pet accessories. But if your garage is organized and open, you’ll also have a covered area for outdoor parties at your home, a place to work on your vehicle and a play area for your children during bad weather.

Garage Organization Tips

• Use open shelves to store everyday items and cabinets to keep less attractive items out of sight.

• Every garage needs some sort of workbench so you have an area to work on home improvements and basic fix-its. If your garage is small, consider a drop-down or fold-down bench.



• Store flammable liquids such as gasoline, paint thinner, turpentine and cleaning supplies in metal containers with tight caps.

• Place all chemicals and dangerous items on high shelves so children and pets cannot reach them.
