It's the catch-all, the place that those things you don't need for a while get tossed until you "find a better home" for them. Yes, it's the garage. There's a place for your cars, a place for the trash and a place for everything else! This is the hardest place to keep clean and organized, but we've got some great tips and ideas to help you get started.

Choose the best one based on the size of your garage and what you plan to store on the shelving.[/caption] [caption id="attachment_890" align="alignnone" width="410"] Next, stock up on plastic storage bins. We prefer the clear bins which allow you to see the items inside, but the colored bins are great too just make sure you label your bins well. Fill the bins and add them to your new shelving for easy access and a real home for your items.[/caption] [caption id="attachment_891" align="alignnone" width="333"] We love this organizer. Move the holders to where you need them, layer and store. This is a great way to hold all those rakes, brooms, sports equipment, and hoses. Get them up and out of the way in no time and this makes it easy to keep them organized as well.[/caption] [caption id="attachment_892" align="alignnone" width="419"] As we've mentioned before, we love peg boards. Here is another great use for a smaller piece of peg board. Under your workbench is a great place to store all your tools and keep them out of the way but easy to find and access when needed.[/caption] There are too many other great options for organizing your garage.
