handyman storageYes, even the garage of a handyman needs to be organized. Finding things in a messy garage or work area is very frustrating. Soon enough the pile of stuff needs to be placed in a way that allows you to be able to find and use it like you want.

\

The biggest thing is to get things off of the floor. It will open up areas that you will be able to use, plus you will feel less stress when you go into the abyss.

You can buy organizing items at any home center and they are easy to install. Yard tool organizers mount to the wall and allow you to hang all of your yard tools along the wall. It’s the same deal with your hand tools. Buy pegboard and hooks and soon enough the hammer and screwdrivers will be staring you in the face.

\

For items you don’t use very often, buy plastic stackable bins and throw them in the bins and then stack them out of the way or hang them from the ceiling. The more expensive option is to install large garage cabinets, but the bins are a good second choice. While you are getting things off of the floor, hang up the bicycles and ladders too. There are special hangars for those and they install in 5 minutes.

\

My favorites though are the ceiling racks. These hang from the ceiling and effectively give you a second level of storage. You can place bins on the racks up to several hundred pounds.
