Organizing Tips for the Garage

Organizing. Do you have a take on it? Like it, love it or despise it. Rooms that are organized are very attractive, but how many have the time to actually make this work? With busy schedules including work, after school activities, dinner and then finding time to take a break; it never seems to end. Gathering the energy to organize the garage can be a very disappointing thought. To help you get started, you need ideas and inspiration to finish the job. It’s like putting together that project at work, you have to look forward to something.


If it’s a presentation, some look forward to the end. Will work, work and work some more just to make sure you don’t have to do it again. Others actually like putting things together and relish the thought of the finished number.


This is the type of mindset you should be in to the garage. The first step should always be getting yourself together. If you don’t have something to look forward too, it will take longer or only get partially done. Making the overall attitude worse and then comes the frustration.


Sorting everything out is very important. Go ahead and try just going through the pile and finding homes for your items. It doesn’t work real well, because everything is still in your way. But, try making different piles right from the start. Don’t worry about putting it in separate boxes or bags yet. Just make a pile of throw away and a pile of keepsakes. Going a step further would be combining the next tip with this.


Fined if you can recognize categories. This is just another extension of sorting and you can consider it the same step if you like. Even if you choose to sort then categorize, the job will still get done on time. The point of making categories is so you know what kind or storage or organization techniques you need.


The biggest and best hint for garage organization, keep it up. The whole reason the garage ended up like this is because you took the shortest route. Piles didn’t exist for you to place the items on it, was simply thrown it in there and leave it be. Without the discipline of self-control, all your efforts will be wasted. Clutter will rebuild and the room will look like a hot mess again.


Never underestimate the control you have over your house. As a homeowner you have the ability to do anything you want. You keep everything in the house in some form of control, you can do the same with the garage. The same discipline you use to tell the kids to keep up their rooms, is all you need to tell yourself to keep up the garage.


Standing by and letting the problem grow, will only get you in deeper waters. Take these few tips and get started envisioning a new garage!

How To Purchase Garage Organizational Systems

Did you know, that sometimes the easiest questions to ask are often the hardest to answer? The mind likes to go blank at the wrong moment and then you are stuck. When it comes to businesses, you often forget to check for the basic aspects. Online ordering has become a great fad in the last few years, but it’s not always the greatest options. Parcels not being shipped or getting broken along the way are deterrents.

 As you start hitting that brick wall looking around for something to put order into the garage, consider these:


 Always pay attention to the reputation of the company. You can go to the company’s website and look at reviews there, but they may not be accurate. Why? Because the company can add insight there and just throw around some names. So, always put the name of the business through a search engine, with the word review. This will bring up several pages with results from consumers. You can also check the Better Business Bureau for their rating as a business.


 Who doesn’t love to save money? That one company with the cheapest price, sure seems like a grand opportunity, but is it really? Be sure to read any fine print associated with the product. You may find some catches in there you don’t like. Also, consider looking for a median price. Not the most expensive but also not the cheapest. You could read the provisions and see if any of the better products come with incentives. Things like free delivery, free installation or 2 year warranty would be adequate.

 Quality And Quantity

 It does usually ring true, that the price you pay is the quality you get. If you head for the median pricing like above, you might find the quantity to be an aspect. When purchasing cabinets or other organizational systems for the garage, some companies will give you a good deal if you purchase more. So, instead of purchasing just one cabinet, get two and get half off. Something like that usually piques the interest of consumers, when they look for it.


 The hardest part of picking something out for your garage, is making sure it fits. It’s like painting, you think that it will look great until you get it. Then, you start having regrets, but you don’t want to send it back. The trick to this is finding a place that has samples for you and taking them home to test out. Or you can get some programs that will let you design the garage electronically and go from there.

 The hardest part about this process, is remembering all of these little steps. You would think this wasn’t necessary and all companies were honest. Unfortunately, that is never the case. Research will always be key to any big changes you want to make.

 Don’t end up regretting the purchase of any item because you choose the wrong color or company to go with.

How Important Is Proper Storage?

More and more we are caught running around and not stopping to take a breath. There is work, meetings, kids, activities, house cleaning, meal prepping and more. The list never really stops, so neither do you. Wouldn’t it be nice if just one day you could come home and all the cleaning would be done? Everything would be in the right place. For most, this is definitely on the wish list. But, we run into walls when it’s time for ideas and everything remains where it is.

To quit running the normal cycle, one has to know what difference it will make to put the pedal to the medal. If you only think about it increasing your daily work, then it is never going to happen.

In the beginning, you are absolutely right. It will be a chore to put everything together and find the right placement for your belongings. What you need to do is think past that.

Because of our scheduling and lift in general, things tend to be chaotic. You lay things down and leave them there, even as you know you should do something about it. One piece of paper doesn’t seem like a problem, but it encourages the behavior further.

Each time you walk by with a few pieces of mail and you see a pile started on the counter, what do you do? Unconsciously, set the new mail there creating a bigger pile. When you think about it, it’s kind of like the more you see, the more you do.

Let’s say you had created an organizational system with the mail. Maybe it’s still in the kitchen, but you have a wall system that will hold mail. There is a spot for bills, personal and even an area for shredding. Each time you get the mail and walk into the kitchen, you will notice the mail on the wall neatly placed. A simple placement like this helps one remember that mail does not go on the counter.

Expert organizers tend to make the job of organization a tough experience. But, not everyone can handle that and then all they do is get discouraged. Are you one that gets discouraged? If so, don’t let the complex systems they have get you in a bad mood. Just think about what you have and how you can use it to help.

In the instance of the mail, you could even staple some folders to the wall and make them hold the mail. No buying there, just using what is already in the home.

Proper storage will help you lessen the chaotic environment that already exists. The reason we use the word proper, is because you can have storage and it not help one bit. Like the above scenario, the countertop would be storing the mail. Not really the countertops job, thus not proper storage.

If you can wrap your mind around the usage of proper storage, the chaos will begin to lessen!

How About a Garage Closet?

Yes, we’re serious. A garage closet can be the Prince Charming to your garage clutter problem. This is a little different than the normal garage organizational methods. They do require some of the same pre-steps to completion though. Want to learn more about saving your garage with a system you can create?

Before you can begin the fun part of this experiment, you must figure out what you are going to use it for and where it is going to go. For example, you won’t need a closet for items like boxes or totes, those can find another home. Garage closets aren’t necessarily like the normal closet either. More like the ultimate closet with your attitude.

These closets work great with other organizational systems too. Mainly because, one unit usually covers one wall unless you have the other specifications. Which means you can cover the rest of the walls with anything you want.

If you love to hunt, a type of closet would be perfect for you. Hunting usually leaves you dirty. Bringing that dirt in the house, well that could just get you in trouble. So, you could have an area specifically for your boots and a hidden hamper for your dirty clothes.

In general, a garage closet is a mixture of cabinets, drawers and some hanging space or even shelves. The entire setup depends on you. When you figure out a design that works for you, it might not even look like the normal closet. That would probably be a good thing.

The whole point of this organizational system, is to have everything together. If you can fit all of your hunting stuff, there is a lot, within this one system, it means money saved. No buying lots of other equipment for this one hobby.

Gardeners would benefit from this system just as much as hunters. Getting out there and pulling weeds gets you just as dirty as sitting in some of the stands. So you could have your boots, gloves and hat in one area and your special tools in the chest of drawers.

Customize it however you see it. Want more than one closet system? Then get more than one! You don’t have to limit yourself just because you think there’s only one possibility. Where you think of one, your other half might think of another. Combine the ideas and see what you come up with OR get separate systems.

Don’t think you have to buy from a certain company either. The joy of garage organizer systems, you are always going to find another one. There is bound to be another place that will give you a good deal or just has unmatchable service and reputation. Even buy a few pieces at a time and put your own together.

Garage closet systems are just another way of building an organizational system altogether, instead of having mixed pieces. Anything is open to interpretation!

Garages Deserve Organization

Cleaning the garage can give you more benefits than just a clean space. If done right, it can increase your home’s value. No one really thinks about that fact. Very few pay attention to that fact until it has gotten out of control. The clutter has gone from just being a few piles to being a huge conjunction of stuff with few pathways.

You must first decide how you want standard you want to bring your garage. Do you want just enough room to walk? How about enough room to park the car? Maybe even squeeze enough empty space that you can have a work area, if you wish. Any number of these things are possible, through the following steps:

1. For the bigger jobs, don’t take on anything without giving yourself something to be proud of. You can separate the portions of the room and choose to take it piece by piece. Either way, when you hit a milestone stop and congratulate yourself for making that far.

2. Try to remove everything from the garage. This may seem more difficult than it really is. No need to try organizing things just yet. The importance of this step is merely to see how much space you want to gain and how much you wish to use.

3. Set up at least 4 different piles. There should be a keep, trash, donate and recycle. The donation could also serve as a sale pile, if you wish to hold a garage sale afterwards. The hardest part of this step, staying true to those piles. You will never get anything done by putting something in the trash, donate or recycle pile and then deciding you want to keep it after all.

4. SLOW! Most people have a cluttered garage because they didn’t take the time to put things away. Once the clutter is to a certain point, it’s just depressing to think about moving and cleaning it all up. Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was that messy. Always give yourself extra time to get everything done. Allow yourself to work at a pace comfortable to you.

Imagine, just following these four steps can get you on your way to organizing the garage. The first step in organizing has been always cleaning and weeding through the junk. Giving a system to all that important, not every piece of trash that may have made its way in there.

With this all in mind, you will be able to see a different space. Somewhere you can walk and trust you aren’t going to fall and break an ankle. A secure room to park the car from invaders or weather. Most importantly, with a few additions, you can have more room for stuff than you thought!

Organization is kind of like Tetris. You have to test the space and figure out what will fit to make sure the pile doesn’t get too high!

Garage Organizing Cabinets

Picking out the right garage cabinet may seem pretty easy. It should be no different than picking out the cabinet for your kitchen or bathroom right? Wrong. The kitchen or the bathroom benefit from normal cabinets with a certain air of superiority to them. The garage has to ring with the air of durability and great structure. You can pick out the material as easily as the others, but the rest is where the real decision making comes in.
It’s all about the look
When you are more concerned with the look of the cabinets than anything else, your choices are pretty fair. The main materials you will run across, is either the metal, plastic or wood. Of course, the wood requires more upkeep and generally metal is more expensive. Although, if you are going for custom editions, the prices will fluctuate more.
The worst thing about making purchases, will it be put to use. Especially, when you are making a big purchase? This is the big question when you consider cabinets. Do you actually have a use for them? Sounds pretty insane to ask that, right? Who would search just for garage cabinets when you don’t need them?
Lots, actually. What happens is the mind starts to turn and it leads to many ideas, but as you research you find better methods. If you don’t need something to be in a closed environment or something to be locked up, you probably don’t need cabinets. Have nothing that can really benefit from a drawer? Then you don’t need too many cabinets with drawers.  
What if you say, I will still get them.
That’s fine, but you may end up regretting that decision. Eventually, you will tire of seeing a brand new product not being used, thus you will resort to finding a use. Sometimes that use ends up being a big cluttered mess.
Types of cabinets
If you already know what kind and you know the use, then you are on to the types of cabinets. Like above, you only need to get what you will use. That is the trick to most purchases. When looking at different providers, you will find cabinets that roll, hang on the wall, add countertop space and so on. Anyone big on tools would love some of the metal rolling cabinets, it’s like a toolbox only better.
Garage organization requires just as much tact as does any other room. Just because you don’t use it as often, doesn’t mean it should be ignored. Everything has potential in your house. Well, everything does with a little love from you.
Cabinets are only the first step into providing great organization to your garage. You can find many unique methods of storing items in them as well. That’s one thing to think about if you are set on cabinets, but not sure how to use them. See what you can find to make them into the item you want.
Soon you will be ready to put everything together!
