Organizing Your Garage 101

It’s only the middle of January but some homeowners are already feeling spring fever. While it’s still too early to begin your outdoor projects, there are a few things you can do to satisfy your cleaning, organizing, and improvement craving while staying warm and comfortable.

One great way to get a jump on your other outdoor projects is to get your garage prepped and ready for all the work ahead by getting it cleaned up and in order. But if you’re like most people, your garage is a little disorganized and it can be hard to know where to begin. Not to worry! We’ve outlined how to get your car in the garage and find anything you need with the tips in this organizing your garage 101.


In order to be able to find the things you need in your garage, you’ll want to sort them in a way that makes sense for you. All of your tools should be in one area, cleaning products, sports equipment, etc. in another.  As you sort through the stuff in your garage don’t feel bad about donating items that go unused or throwing out broken our outdated items. It will only help cut down on the clutter.


The best ways to organize your garage is to invest in shelving. The space on your walls is prime real estate, especially if you plan to keep your cars in the garage. Don’t be afraid to utilize it!
Another way to make the most of your vertical space is to use the ceiling space. If you have bikes or other outdoor equipment that takes up a lot of space on the ground, don’t be afraid to hang them up.


Once you have shelving in place, you’ll be able to store your belongings. One way to keep everything organized and easily accessible is with bins. When you designate a bin for camping supplies, tools, or sporting equipment you make it easy to find and easy to put away. If you use an opaque bin, be sure you they are clearly labeled.


Lastly, give your garage a good cleaning by knocking down cobwebs, sweeping the floors, and making sure you have adequate lighting.

Once the inside of your garage is clean and organized, you may look at your 10-foot wide garage door and think that it could really use some sprucing up itself. After looking at the garage door options at Costco, and garage doors at Home Depot, or Lowe’s garage doors, you may be wondering how the cost and quality compare. There are other costs to consider too. For example, if you choose a door from Home Depot, what is the Home Depot garage door installation cost?
