5 Steps for Spring Garage Organization
Garage organization can be a daunting task – especially after a winter of use. Follow along and use these 5 steps as a checklist (or rough guidelines) to help manage your organization process.
1. Purge Your Garage
Make sure you keep what you want in your garage, and get rid of the rest! That busted battery that’s been taking up space? Time to safely dispose of it. The bike with a flat tire? Keep and add it to your fix-it list. Start with a clean slate by clearing out items and sweeping out any debris. Perhaps pressure wash the floor while you’re at it.
2. Group Your Items
Now that you’ve decided what you want to keep, sort your items into categories. Group tools and other hardware, gardening supplies and seeds, bikes & scooters, painting tools into separate categories. Decide which sections of the garage should house each group.
3. Organize Smaller Items
Pegboards, cabinets, and shelves – oh my! These three tools are a game-changer for your garage organization. Organize your lighter tools onto pegboards, gardening tools in cabinets, and painting tools on shelves. And don’t forget to accessorize your pegboard – these hooks are perfect for customizing your board to organize your tools, belts, and other items that can crowd your workbench.
4. Move Bikes & Oversized Items to Overhead Racks
Adding storage utility hooks and other accessories can free up a ton of floor space in your garage and make it feel less cluttered. Even hanging 4 or 5 bikes on a wall will take up around the same amount of floor space as only 1 bike leaning against a wall.
Sit back, relax, and admire your work. Invite some neighbors over for a garage party. And set a date to do it again next year.
