Instructions for Organizing a Garage

Step 1

Separate the items in your garage according to category. Groups could include tools, sports equipment, cleaning supplies and trash.

Step 2

Throw all the trash away. Donate items to friends or charities if they still are good but you won't use them anymore.

Step 3

Designate areas of the garage for different categories. Tools belong in one area, trash and recycling in another, sports equipment in another. Put the most-used items in places that are easily accessible.

Step 4

Install hooks, shelves, cabinets and cubbyholes to store garage items. Set up subcategories in each location and store like items with like: all hockey sticks in one location, for instance. Label the shelves to make locating items easier.
