6 Tips to Help You Organize the Garage

  • The garage is the last part of your home you see when you leave your home and the first thing you see when you come back. Make it a space that brings joy… not stress
  • Get help. Turn to kids, neighbors, friends or professional organizers like Reset Your Nest. A garage overhaul is a huge investment in time. Don’t try it alone.
  • Plan ahead. Identify pain points, decide what you want your garage to look like and what the primary functions will be, purchase appropriate shelving and containers, hooks, tool chests, etc.
  • Matching bins make a difference. Use open bins for things accessed more and closed bins for storage items.
  • Use that wall space. Go for slat walls, hooks, shelves.
  • Get the whole family on board and label.
