Get Equipped: Before you start thinking about what to do with your outdoor power equipment, spend a Saturday cleaning out your garage. If your garage is particularly dirty or filled with debris, make sure you have plenty of large garbage bags and cleaning supplies handy as you start clearing out your garage space.
Donate unused stuff: Make a pile of things that are still in good enough to shape to give away – toys your children no longer play with, duplicate tools – and bring them to your local donation center or church accepting donations. Throw away anything that’s too broken, old, or used to refurbish or donate.
Try These Garage Organization Ideas: Organize loose tools, nails, and small items into storage containers so they are not haphazardly stored and taking up garage space. You can hammer some nails up on available walls to hang tools so they’re easily accessible yet out of the way.
One of the best ways to maximize garage space is consolidating everything you use into storage containers that are easily stackable or easy to mount on walls so that everything you need is still around but taking up far less space. Trying some creative garage organization ideas may even clear enough space to the car that’s been stranded in the driveway all winter.
Keep Safety in Mind: Don't forget to be smart about where you are placing various tools, storage containers, and other items like hoses – always be vigilant about the location of electrical outlets, faucets, pipes, and heaters to avoid fire hazards or damage to your items.
