Typically, 80% of items stored in a garage can be kept on shelving — the other 20% (such as handled tools and gardening helpers) is generally stored on a hook. You’ll need a combination of shelving, drawers and hooks to keep everything organized. Designate an area to store like items together and be conscientious about returning the items to their proper place. For example, tools should be stored in one area and Christmas ornaments in another. Creating “zones” within your garage will help all family members know where to locate items.
If your storage space is limited, consider storing items under a workbench, behind the door, and on vertical wall space. There are a wide variety of door and wall hooks and racks to maximize every inch of space in your garage. Assemble a quick fix kit, consisting of a hammer, screwdriver, nails and screws and keep it near the door to the house so you can access it easily for quick fixes. Store small hardware such as screws, nails, nuts and bolts in small, open-ended storage compartments that are stackable. Label the bins to correspond with its contents. This will provide easy access to those often used, but sometimes hard to find items.
