Is your garage one of those rooms that you tend to let go? The garage has always been the area where everyone tosses their dirty shoes, yard tools are piled up on top of each other, and there are a dozen junk drawers filled with odds and ends. And, when you venture into the garage looking for a specific item, you embark on a never-ending search for long lost treasure. The last thing anyone wants to do is spend 30 minutes looking for the rake. Fortunately, with these storage and organization hacks, you can turn your garage into your favorite room in your home.
If you’re similar to the average homeowner, all of your tools are stuffed in a drawer. Instead of digging through several drawers, keep all of your tools at an arm’s reach with a magnetic tool holder. Simply install long magnets onto a piece of wood and your tools are all in one convenient location.
Did you ever think your paper towel holder could have any other purpose besides distributing paper towels? Use it in your garage for easy access to garage bags. However, garage bags are much heavier than paper towels so you will want to make sure that the paper towel holder is securely attached to the wall. In addition, you will need a skinny rod to make sure that it will fit through the tiny opening in the center of the garbage bags.
If you have children, you probably have tons of sports balls rolling around and equipment everywhere. With a few bungee cords, you can easily store sports balls. Another simple organization hack is to nail slats to the studs in your wall to make pockets for storing other sports or lawn items such as baseball bats, tennis rackets, brooms, and rakes.
PVC pipes can be re-purposed to organize your endless supply of garden and yard tools. Use a good saw and drill to forming the pipes into holders, which can then be attached to your wall. It’s an affordable way to keep your gardening and lawn tools out of the way and still have easy access to everything you need.
