Organized Tips & Ideas


Warmer Days Ahead: Prepare Your Garage Now

As the days get warmer, it’s time to start thinking about getting your garage back in order. You’ll be spending a lot more time in the garage getting things done - from working on summer projects to storing a variety of items such as garden supplies to the kid’s baseball gloves and most importantly parking your car. We don’t want you to spend your summer stressing over how unorganized it is or how you can’t seem to find what you’re looking for. We've created a helpful guide to ensure you’re maximizing your storage space and finding perfect harmony.

An Extension of Your Home

For many, the garage is not seen as part of the home, but rather a place to hide household items. However, if you embrace the garage as another room in your home, you’ll find that it’s much easier to get and stay organized. Prioritizing the time to organize your garage is the first step. Trust us, it can be a challenge, but making it a priority will lead you in the right direction to an organized garage.


Purging is a Must

The reality is that purging your garage will streamline the organizing process. Try the three pile method: keep, trash and donate. Throw away those old dirty boots you’ve had for over 2 decades and donate your kid’s toys they’ve outgrown. Once you’ve purged the items in your garage, organizing the remaining items will go much faster because you’ll have less stuff to find a space for. Parting from these items will be challenging, but it puts you on the right track to a functional, clean and tidy garage.

Investing in Storage Solutions

Consider mounting hooks, organizational grids and adjustable shelving to maximize vertical space. Organized Living's Activity Organizers are perfect for garage storage as there is a variety to choose from to meet your specific needs. These will help you get items off the floor, keep your garage cleaner and finally allow you to park your car in the garage. Investing in storage options for your garage will provide endless solutions to organize every sport, hobby and activity.


Create Zones

After finding the perfect storage options for your garage, we suggest creating zones for your items. Dedicating specific areas to store all of your items such as tools, garden supplies, bikes and toys will keep your space organized and allow you to find what you’re looking for in seconds. Your family is also more likely to put things away!


Now’s the time to get your garage organized and back on track before summer. Maximizing your garage storage with the perfect organizational solutions will allow you to create the space you’ve always wanted. Start prioritizing time to reclaim the garage. Trust us, it’ll make your life so much easier and allow you to enjoy summer.
