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.

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 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!
