Believe it or not, your garage is not only made to house your automobiles.  In fact, you can use it for storage or even a work area for small household projects.  Whether you decide to keep tools, lawn care equipment or other accessories in the garage, organization is a must.


Maximize Your Workspace


If you use the garage for small woodworking projects or other chores that require a sturdy surface, consider installing a fold-down table on the interior wall.  When not in use, you can simply lift the table back up and into place.  This is a terrific idea for those who have a small garage or simply enjoy making the most out of their workspace.


Unclutter Your Clutter


If you have any items that are broken, outdated or simply unusable for any reason, toss them out.  One of the first steps to organizing your garage is to get rid of the things that you no longer need or can use.


If you have tools that are rarely used, put them away so that you can place the most commonly used tools in the forefront.  As a general rule, your garage will be more efficient if the things that you need on a regular basis are easily accessible.


Categorize & Sort


When it comes to organizing any part of your home, including the garage, properly categorizing your items is essential.  This will help you to locate everything quickly and efficiently.  You can use storage bins, shelves and even clear drawers for sorting your items.


Storage Solutions For Your Small Items


If you typically use your garage to store hardware, such as nails, bolts and other small items, try organizing them in a clear glass jar instead of leaving them lying loosely in a toolbox.  Not only is the proper storage safer, but it also allows you to easily view and retrieve the items as needed.  Used baby food jars are ideal for this purpose.  


Wall Mounting Is A Must


If you or your children own a bicycle or you need to find the perfect spot for your ladder or large tools, consider mounting them on the wall using the proper hook or other support.  It’s important to note that larger items should be within reach to avoid injury while trying to retrieve them.  Mounting your large items on the garage walls will save on both yard and garage clutter and it’s also a wise way to protect your items from being stolen.
