1. Tool rack

Avoid leaning your brooms and shovels against the wall or having them scattered throughout your garage. This tool rack, or a similar corner rack, are the perfect solution to storing these larger and in the way items.

2.    Garage track

Use these Add-A-Hooks to hang multiple items, whether it’s a bike, cords, or sporting equipment from the garage track on the ceiling. This will maximize the space on the ceiling without interfering with vehicles or the garage door.

3.   Glass jars

Glass jars or clear plastic containers are the perfect solution to storing nuts, bolts, and screws. They’ll be easy to identify and access, and stack nicely on shelving units or workbenches. The jars will also help keep like items with other like items and prevent these small items from becoming clutter piles in a drawer or cupboard.

4.    Peg boards or wall panels

Using a peg board to store your tools makes them more easily accessible. The tools can also be easily rearranged and added on to the board. Wall panels also allow for customized wall storage that can fit a wide range of items from bottles and containers to hoses, wires, and power tools with hooks, shelves, or hanging baskets.

5.   Magnetic tool bar

They’re great for knives in a kitchen, but who knew they also worked great with wrenches and other metal tools in your garage? Try mounting a magnetic strip around your work bench or on the wall above to store these items. You won’t need to worry about finding special hooks or drawer inserts. Just take them and place them back on the magnetic strip when you’re done!
