Make a Dispenser for Tape


Ok, so you’re bound to have duct tape in your garage. If you have several rolls of differently colored tapes or different types of tape, you can easily create a dispenser that mounts to the wall and keeps your tapes perfectly organized. A few boards and a hacksaw blade are all you need to create a great dispenser that not only keeps your tape organized, it cuts it the perfect length every time.

Organize Paint and So Much More

A few shelves, a pegboard and some mason jars will go a long way in helping you to get your garage organized. If you have cans of leftover paint that you don’t really want to throw out, put it in mason jars. Just label the lids with the type of paint and color and you can keep those jars on a shelf to organize them and to give your garage a little color. Pegboards are great for keeping tools and even paintbrushes organized. Via: Hisugarplum – {Organized} Garage (the paint & tools)

Hang Bikes on Walls


Whether you have loads of bikes in your garage, garden tools or any other larger items, you can easily organize them by just hanging them on the walls. Even if you have concrete walls, hooks are relatively easy to install and you can use those hooks to keep your garage clutter-free. Utilizing wall space is a great way to keep things organized and still have room to park your cars. Via: OrganizingmadefunInterview with a Professional Organizer

Plastic Tubs and Grouping


When you begin organizing, it is important that you group like items together. This ensures that you can easily find what you are looking for. Don’t forget the labels as well. You can keep things in plastic tubs and when you label those tubs, you will always know where everything is. Tubs will stack or fit into most shelving units which make them a great choice for overall organization. Via: RookietorockstarGarage Organization

Use Your Studs

The wall studs, that is. If your garage walls are partially unfinished and you have studs that you can utilize, this is a great way to keep things organized. Use those studs to hang heavier items or add a few boards to the front to make a semi-shelving unit. A few bungee cords hung on studs gives you a great place to store all sorts of sports equipment.
