Step One: Clear it out

The first step to garage organization is decluttering. Transfer everything in your garage to your driveway and sort them by what you'd like to keep and what can go. Use a dumpster service to get rid of the trash and sell anything you could collect some cash from. 

Step Two: Sort

Next, sort the things that you plan to keep. Consider these categories:

  • Gardening equipment
  • Sports equipment
  • Holiday
  • Kid's Play
  • Car Equipment
  • Seasonal

Step Three: Store

Organize your sorted items with these storage space ideas!

  • Wallboards (utilize wall space)
  • Overhead storage
  • Cabinets
  • Buckets & Bins (perfect for kid's toys)

Step Four: Label

Label bins, buckets and drawers to help family members maintain garage organization. Use a label maker to clearly identify the container and what it should contain.

Step Five: Workshop space

After sorting and labeling, consider having a garage workshop. This is the perfect way to do project without making a huge mess in your home. It also allows your to locate tools quickly and easily.

Garage organization will not only be helpful to your family, but it can transform your garage into a useful summer space! For other tips on garage maintenance and household tips, subscribe to our newsletter to receive all the latest from your local Overhead Door Company!
