Find garage organizing inspiration from Elfa, Ikea, and Sears

Camping gear, bicycles, gardening supplies, lawn maintenance equipment, tools, automobile care products, and recycling bins are common goods found in garages across America in addition to automobiles. If the garage is well organized, it’s a lot easier to get the car into the space. But, for many residents, the garage is so haphazardly thrown together that a home’s garage includes everything except a car.

As the weather cools in the northern hemisphere, bringing your car into the garage is a more attractive idea than it was in warmer weather. The threat of early mornings spent scraping ice off of your windshield can be a great motivator to finally getting your garage into tip-top condition.

If you’re looking to improve the level of organization in your garage, you might want to check out the following storage solutions. Their prices vary, but all will help you to get your garage organized. A simple Google search with the phrase “garage organizing” will also yield many local companies that specialize in systems to tidy your space. The pictures are also great inspiration for how you can create your own systems for your garage if you aren’t interested in purchasing an out-of-the-box solution.

And if you missed it when it ran, be sure to check out our recent post on steps to take to organize your garage. Good luck!

    I definitely need to get my garage in order before it gets much cooler out. Scraping off your car is the WORST. From the looks of it, I like the Elfa system best. It seems really customizable and the design is timeless. There’s nothing worse than outdated garage storage — har har!

    My husband has put the Sears system in our garage over the past year and it has made it very organized and gotten everything off the floor other than the lawn mower- it is his pride and joy now. :)

    Maybe it is me — in my Brooklyn apartment, but… If you’ve got a ton of stuff in your garage that requires an entire system for organization, why not do a garage sale? Really, take the opportunity in the cooler weather to sort through your belongings and then before the end of the year, donate whatever you cannot sell for a tax deduction (people who itemize in the US only)…

    For the price, you may want to consider the Rubbermaid Garage system. That is the route that I’m planning. Get the tracks and piece/part together what you want for not a lot of cash – http://www.rubbermaidpro.com/garage.htm

    The article is nice but offers expensive solutions. Another really useful tool I have found is Flip Clip Storage kits. They are quick, easy and affordable and have a ton of uses for garage storage. Just clip them on to an exposed stud and in minutes you’re garage is organized. Check out their website at http://www.flipclipstorage.com
