It’s easier to keep a garage clean when everything has its place. That’s why you should find storage solutions that work for you and the oddly-sized stuff that tends to get stored there, says Living Well Spending Less. Try stacking bins or pegboard for small tools, and use labeled jars for tiny items such as nails and screws. Hang long items such as rakes, ladders and shovels on the wall, and suspend bikes, canoes and kayaks overhead. Keep the things you use most often within easy reach, and you’ll find you put them back in the right places more often.
With kids riding bikes and playing outdoors, it’s easy to let your garage get cluttered! Make sure you have a specific spot for your children to park their bikes or rollerblades, and also make sure that all of their games, toys, and sports equipment have designated shelf space in your garage. A clean garage allows you to find different things more easily and quickly if you’re in a hurry!
