Garage is not only a storage shelter for your vehicle, but also a multipurpose storage center for house ware items, garden tools, outdoor sports equipment and workshop crafts. Take a look at these garage storage and organization ideas so that you can easily and quickly get things in good order.
Use sliding locks to keep your wheelbarrow standing up against the wall and out of the way. Enjoyed your garage organization idea, it help me keep my stuff in proper order & easy to find. My husband and sons are avid ice fishermen (I know, crazy, huh?) and all their coats, and insulated overalls, etc.
Another great thing we did using simple metal shelf brackets that you can purchase at any hardware store, is create a place to store the folding chairs we use when we have parties. Another great way to maximize floor space in the garage is getting all the long-handled equipment up off the floor and onto the wall. For those items that are a little bulkier and won’t hang flush against the wall, bicycle hooks mounted under existing shelves do the trick!
Even large nails placed strategically around the garage can keep items handy and completely out of the way. As much as I love nails and hooks for hanging, some items, like a garden hose, simply won’t fit on a hook.
Here a bungee cord, combined with a bike hook, makes a perfect hanger for this industrial-sized extension cord. For outdoor products you buy in bulk such as ice melt for sidewalks, dog food, bird seed, etc., a medium-sized (or large-sized) galvanized trash can is a great way to avoid having lots of open bags that are prone to spilling laying around.
Since I love the look (and functionality) of my galvanized trash can so much, I decided to pick up a few galvanized buckets as well to help corral items that don’t lend themselves to being hung on the wall. The labels are simply chalkboard stickers I bought at Michaels craft store and wrote on with a chalk pen. Last, but certainly not least, on my garage organization check list this week was figuring out what to do with summer clothes now that we’ve entered into Fall.
Like I said earlier, despite a fairly chaotic week, I was able to implement several of these organization ideas with little time, money, or effort involved.
The only way to know what is in the garage is to remove everything inside and start with a clean slate. As you pull things out of the garage, gather all of your sporting equipment together in one spot, then your tools, lawn gear, camping gear, decorations and so on.
You don’t need to spend a fortune on supplies, a lot of things you already have will work. What I did want to share was how we moved all of our tools into the garage to create a workspace fit for any rookie DIYer. Unfortunately I barely have a tool to my name so therefore don’t require much space to house them. We are in the process of finishing our basement, and we’re going to have an L-shaped corner that had a work bench on top and storage below. We don’t have enough room in our garage for a garbage can and a car at the same time so our tools are stored a) on a workbench in the basement for the not everyday tools (ha!) and b) in a built in cabinet in our dining room. As always (well, I don’t comment often), I’m impressed with your collection of DIY stuff! Organizing your garage can be a lengthy and costly process, but it will save you time and eventually money. Make the most of your garage’s storage space without hiring professionals to build custom garage solutions for you.


Hangs scrap sections of plastic lattice to store everything from lengths of molding to fishing poles.
A great idea to recycle your old things and keep the spray paints from spreading out over shelves and bins.
Short lengths of PVC pipe held in the rack serve as compartments to store each clamp individually. Screw the jar lids into the wooden shelf that sits above the work top, and then screw the jar onto the mounted lid. Make a good-looking bike shelf with recycled wood crate, and keep the bike out of the way and easy to access.
Use PVC pipes to keep your lawn and gardening tools out of the way yet still easy to access. Connect large pieces of PVC pipe with screws and use it to store all of those bulky yard tools.
Use pie tins cut in half to safely store those circular items you need, such as sanding discs, circular saw blades and abrasive discs. Is it the time it takes to organize it or is the daunting task of cleaning the garage too daunting? My mother-in-law has been in town visiting, my husband developed a gigantic-sized “man cold,” and then he saw fit to pass it on to me!
We are big believers is getting as much as possible up off the floor of the garage and onto the walls. These garage wall tool racks are inexpensive, easy to mount, and go a LONG way towards a more organized garage! This pair of shears that we use a lot during the summer are tucked away right inside the garage door and are easy to grab when a pruning emergency arises.
My husband has a pellet smoker and I have found this is the most efficient and attractive way to store his rather large supply of pellets.
Even though we have more than one tool box, it seems after we use a tool, it never ends up back in the box. These would be great for all sorts of sports equipment (I used one of them for baseball mitts that I never seem to know where to put) but I really like them as a place to keep winter hats and gloves as well. But I was pleasantly surprised at what a difference even a little more organization can make!
You can use large trash cans to store rakes, shovels and brooms upright, or to store sporting equipment. Share your ideas with the rest of us and you will be automatically entered to win a $250.00 gift card to The Container Store where you’ll find EVERYTHING you need to get organized for fall!
If I cleaned it out I could get six cars in there… but as it is, I need to pirouette around stuff to get anywhere. I dream of the day I have a garage – good idea asking for the previous owners to transform the carport! With a few supplies from your local hardware store or recycled materials, you can maximize the storage space offered by this versatile area. Get all that stuff up and out of the way and into unclaimed space near your garage ceiling. Swing down the drawers to be available while working, and out of the way when done working. Because of the open design of the lattice, you can quickly see the items stored overhead and has easy access to them.
A few bungee cords hung on studs gives you a great place to store all sorts of sports equipment.


Create these hangers on the wall, and make each one easy to access and remove, instead of having them stacked on top of each other.
A great idea for a number of organizational needs: in the garage, the office, or for your craft space. Those small holes allow you to select specific areas for each hook or basket and ensure you have enough room for each item.
I had seen the idea of a magnetic strip for storing oft-used tools several different places in my research and knew I had to give it a try! I don’t know about you, but we have a ridiculous amount of various kinds of tape in our garage and house.
Recycled glass jars or small plastic containers can keep nails & screws organized, and tin cans are great for paintbrushes & screwdrivers! So working on this garage organization post has been challenging to say the least, but I did manage to take photos of some of the organization ideas we currently use at our house and also managed to implement a few new ones that I’d been meaning to try!
All we did was mount two closet rod brackets to the bottom of some existing shelving in our garage and got a four-foot length of wooden closet rod at Home Depot. I decided a few small bins might be in order to not only clear the clutter, but to make things easier to find.
We also happen to have a ridiculous number of suit hangers (with the locking pant bar), so this was a marriage made in heaven. But since the basement isn’t done yet, the tools basically float around the rest of the house freely. If you look closely you can see my husband also stores his regular fishing rod behind the clothing by resting it in the bottom of the two brackets. We mounted it right next to the shelving in easy reach and now there are no excuses for not putting tools back where you found them at our house! I really needed to make some room in my closet so I invested in several of these see-through bins to store my off-season wardrobe. You may be able to have it all if you take a minute to prioritize how you want to use the space.
You may be able to put plywood boards along rafters to store seasonal or seldom used items. Once (if?) we finish our remodel we’d like to maybe turn the carport into some type of studio space.
This will help save time when rummaging through storage boxes and will save valuable space for other items. I really liked these bins in particular because the lids are attached and you don’t run the risk of misplacing them (not that *I* would ever do such a thing!) And once again I utilized the chalkboard stickers as labels. I even put a second set of stickers on the opposite ends of the bins so that come springtime I can repeat the process with my Winter clothes and simply turn the bins around when stored. For smaller items consider hanging a peg board for hand held tools, extension cords, and arts and crafts items.Collect this ideaYour garage should be treated as an extension of your home. Therefore, the same care in cleaning and organizing you show on the interior of your home should apply to the garage.  Once you have cleared out what you don’t need the organizing will be simpler, and you can tackle a new part of the garage each weekend until you have it completed.  If you choose to use our garage for crafts or a woodworking area – a clean and tidy garage will be a must!
Determine your needs for your garage and then make it happen.Freshome reader’s do you use  your garage for your cars or is it only for storage? It would be much easier to keep track of different auto parts and tools if my garage was organized.
