5 Simple Ways to Organize Your Garage

Does your wife refuse to step foot in your garage? Is she afraid to get tetanus from all your wayward nails or a concussion from your hastily-hung shelves? If you'd like to ease her suffering like a good, thoughtful husband, here are five ways you can simply and effectively organize your garage.

1: Invest in a Good Toolbox

Forget about the clunky, one-compartment toolboxes that you played with as a boy. It's the 21st century, and modern toolboxes now come with everything from multiple stacking layers to foldout shelves.

2: Replace Your Work Bench

Your work bench is the center of your garage, but if you aren't careful, it can also become your biggest hindrance to progress. If you find yourself awkwardly navigating around it or wishing that it was bigger/stronger/more easily moved, it may be time to throw the old model away and start again with something completely new.

3: Buy More Cabinets

Cabinet storage is one of the best ways to get your equipment off the bench and into an organized system. You can even buy rolling cabinets for extra maneuverability or countertop cabinets for a workspace on top of your tool storage!
4: Add Shelves

Capable of holding everything from car batteries to half-empty paint buckets, you shouldn't underestimate the value of a good shelf. Stack them high to create your own garage "closet."

5: Hang It Up

Do you routinely misplace your hammers and wrenches? Instead of leaving them scattered across the garage, start hanging them on the wall, either with a pegboard or just an assortment of appropriately-sized nails.
