Let's face it. We all wish we had more storage space! Especially during the holidays, when we are collecting new things (and don't always get rid of the old!) it is easy to say "where do I put this?!"

Why not use that garage of yours for extra space? Genius.2713076677_ec190d5b48_o.jpg

Your garage is a great space to store everything from holiday decorations to gardening supplies. However, that can make things a little crowded! First, take the time to organize your garage. The walls and ceiling are a great place to add hooks and nails to hang and store off the ground. Place your other garage items in color-coded bins. If you can't find enough colors, just be sure each bin is clearly labeled according to the contents inside.

While you're at it, why not clear out your closets and transfer what you can to the garage? By doing so, you are giving your guests a perfectly clean closet to stash their travel bags. Even if it's just temporarily, utilize the bin tip (above) or clear a corner of the garage specifically for temporary storage.

If the weather permits, your garage can be a great place to have Christmas dinner or New Years Eve party! By organizing your garage supplies and pulling out the cars, your garage can now become an extra room. Cover your storage areas with room dividers or curtains for a cleaner look. Add a long decorated table with chairs and some extra lighting to take it to the next level.

See? Your garage can be used for more than just parking your cars! If you have another idea you'd like to share, we'd love to hear it! Just comment below!
