Tackling your garage can seem a bit..overwhelming. It’s a large space that tends to accumulate the random pieces of your home that you don’t have any other place for. But the organizing process doesn’t have to be overwhelming.
- First thing first, Safety. Learn the best ways to store that hazardous stuff we all keep in the garage: the chemicals, the paint cans and pesticides. Always store such substances in their original containers and out of reach of children, on a high shelf or in a locked cabinet.
- Another concern is kids’ toys. They can be a hazard if they’re not stored properly. First of all, they should be kept well away from chemical clutter, and they should be up off the floor. Not too high, though; you don’t want the kids trying to reach them by standing on wobbly boxes. Use bins for small toys and balls.
- Ladders can be a hazard just leaning up against a wall. That may seem like the logical way to store a ladder, but it can tip over very easily, damaging your car or injuring a loved one. Lean it against the wall horizontally at floor level, or, even better, store it on hooks.
- Gardening tools should be stored vertically on secure hooks attached to the walls so they’re easy to get to when you need them and they’re out of the way when you don’t.
It’s easy to control clutter if you remember that the four walls of your garage are actually four more floors. With the right shelves and hooks, you can actually quadruple your storage space!
