Making the Garage Into a Useful Storage Area

To organize your garage to be a useful storage area, the best advice is to get rid of those cardboard boxes that conceal what is being stored. We have found clear plastic containers solve the problem of wondering what is inside, which can eliminate a lot of time and frustration. The plastic containers can be found in discount clearance stores such as BigLots, Ollies, etc. If you watch for sales, you can get good bargains at the office supply stores also. The most expense may be in the shelving, but if you look around you can find good deals on them also.


Sort through and stack containers on the shelves for a neater, useable garage (you might even be able to get that car in there). Clean out the old paint cans, oil cans, etc. by checking with your local waste management office for their proper disposal. The satisfaction of finding what you want when you need it makes it all worthwhile!
