What is the best way to organize my garage?

GARAGE ORGANIZATION

Everything winds up in the garage. Here’s how to find it again.
Your toughest hurdle is giving up the weekend. But, the rest is manageable. And dare we even say, enjoyable? Follow a few steps to get a space that rivals Grandma’s medicine cabinet.

Stack
First up: the go-to items. Stack ‘em on sturdy shelf units and you’ll never lose ‘em. Store heavyweights on the bottom and WD-40® up top — for a quick and easy reach.

Hang
Look down. Is that a bag of fertilizer at your feet? Attach wall shelves to house anything loose, and free up room for your wheels.

Protect
Make nice with bins —perfect for stacking and storing everything from fishing gear to fragile holiday stuff to fickle rock salt. Label ‘em to save time and profanity.

Toss
Wow, things are starting to shape up. Except for the broken stuff. Toss it in the garbage and forget it.

Build
At last! Let’s get buildin’. How many projects can you complete if you only had a new work bench? We think lots.

Organize
Thank the tools for your handiwork. Showcase ‘em on pegboards like the trophies they are.

Enjoy
Stand back and take it all in. Now that’s a playroom.
