Start With a Deep Clean
- The first thing you need to do is to start with a deep clean. Make sure you choose a nice day to move everything out of the garage. Once everything is out, sweep and hose down everything in your garage, so it's all nice and clean.
Utilize Upper Storage
- You only have so much floor space in your garage, and usually taken up by vehicles. That’s why it is essential to utilize vertical storage space. Get some rail or hooks so that you can get things like brooms, rakes, shovels, and other tools off the ground to free that space up. Also, shelves are a great option, like storage racks, so everything has a place.
Organize, Organize, Organize!
- Another good idea is to organize the boxes and storage totes by season, sport, or category. So, you would have all your holiday items in one area or tote. Then all your camping gear in another and so on. By specifying totes or shelves to specific categories, you can easily find what you need when the time comes.
- Once you organize your garage, it is important to label everything. Label boxes and totes on all sides so no matter where it goes, you will be able to know where everything is, saving you time not digging.
