One of our messiest parts of our home is the garage. We spend a lot of the Summer months working on DIY projects so it typically gets out of control with scrap wood lying around, tools pushed off to the side, paint supplies sitting here and there. If you like to DIY as well then i’m sure you know exactly what I mean. Well it is getting closer and closer to wanting the vehicles in the garage for the colder months and now is the time to get everything organized. That is what we spent time doing over this past weekend.
This is what our lovely garage looked like before we got started. See what I mean about stuff everywhere?
We wanted a few things to use for organizing so I popped over to Home Depot and picked up some storage supplies. If you are looking for some to do the same then I found some great deals on the Rubbermaid Roughneck totes and the Rubbermaid Roughneck trash cans.
That was our biggest project was to get everything organized. We use our garage and shed to store our holiday decorations and outdoor items so being organized is a must. When we first moved in here not to long ago my husband built this elevated storage over his tool chest and door. It made the perfect spot to place the 18 gallon totes. Which we put all sorts of items in from outdoor pillows, holiday storage and even random tools.
Of course if you are a diyer who likes working with wood then you know that you have scraps all the time. Valuable scraps too, you never know what you can make out of leftovers so don’t throw them out. When we were thinking about something we could easily place all of our scrap wood pieces in a large trash can came to mind and it works perfectly for containing these items.
It took nearly all weekend to get everything situated but I think we are official ready for fall, at least in the garage.
Does your garage need to be tackled too?
