Decluttering a garage is the first step to getting it organized. After you’ve decluttered, choosing the right storage products for the items you’ll be keeping in your garage is important. Here are some of my favorite garage organizing products:
This type of shelving is great for clearing things off the floor and storing rarely used items.
Freestanding Wall Shelving
Adjustable, freestanding wall shelving like this is a great option if you are renting, or do not want to permanently attach shelves to the garage wall. Shelving like this is available in many sizes and materials, choose what works best for your garage space.
Wall Mounted Shelving
Heavy-duty wall mounted shelving like this is another great option for garages.
Peg boards are great for storing small items where you can easily see them. With options for adding hooks, baskets or small shelves, you can store a variety of items on peg boards like this one.
Garage Wall Tracks
There are several companies that offer wall tracks for garages, like this one from Gladiator. This makes it easier to hang and reposition storage hooks as needed.
Heavy Duty Hooks
Heavy duty wall hooks are great for storing bikes, shovels, weed eaters and more. You can find them in multiple sizes, and mount them directly to your garage wall.
Space-saving bike racks like this one lean against a wall and can help clear floor space in garages.
Clear water-tight, gasketed lidded bins like this help to protect your belongings from pests and moisture. Choose a size that best fits your garage shelving.
If you work with tools in your garage, having a dedicated workbench like this will help keep your tools together and organized.
Freestanding Tool Tower
If you prefer to keep your large yard tools off of the wall, a tool tower like this is a helpful alternative.
Tall utility cabinets like this one can be made of steel, wood or plastic, and they are helpful in storing a variety of items in your garage.
Garage Parking Guides
Although this is not a storage product, I recommend a parking aid like this to help to make sure all vehicles are parked in the correct space in the garage, so that you have enough clearance to enter and exit the vehicle without bumping into any other items stored in the garage.
