Quick Garage Storage and Organization Tips

Still working on getting those holiday decorations stored? Or did you resolve to be more organized this year? We’ve compiled a list of tips to help kick start your spring cleaning.

First, donate, discard or recycle items you no longer need or use. Then, store items you use only once or twice a year – the attic is a great place to store items such as holiday decor. Supplies and equipment you use often can be easily stored on shelves in the garage. If you need a quick solution and aren’t looking to build something permanent, shelves like these from Costco are a good option:

Next, to quickly find tools and cords when you need them, hang them up by installing hooks, pegboard or a tool organizer. Both can be purchased at a local hardware store, such as Lowe’s.
