5 Garage & Shed Organization Tips

We ask a lot of your sheds and garages during the winter. Colder weather requires all the patio furniture and tools to be put inside but what if there is no room? If your outdoor storage space is needing a little tidying up before spring, check out these shed organization tips!

Reuse Standard Household Items

Lining tools up against the wall only works until you need the one shovel buried underneath all the rest. Make sure everything is accessible with these unique projects. Add wheels to the bottom of the filing cabinet so it is easy to pull out. The golf bag is another great way to transport tools while working.

Add a few hooks and screws to support tools and remake a wood pallet into a useable shelf. Use this for garden tools and keep them on an exterior wall of the house.

Keep Like Items Together

Whether in the shed or garage, keep similar items together so you can easily find them when a project requires a specific tool.

A PVC pipe and pool noodles will keep your fishing poles organized until spring. This keeps all the lines tangle-free and priceless poles from getting damaged in the garage.

Use Storage Space For Large Items

Patio furniture should look good as new but it may be hard when the garage or shed is full. When you are at your capacity for home storage, consider renting a storage unit here! Keep the cushions, chairs, and tables out of the way at home with nearby storage.
