The garage is one of those areas that can easily become a cluttered, disorganised mess. To make your garage more usable and maximise storage space, take a look at this organising system.
As all neat freaks know, "a place for everything and everything in its place" is the key to staying organised. This six-zone system suggested by EasyCloset's Inspired Organisation blog follows that mantra by setting up distinct zones for different purposes, such as outdoor gear and bulk storage. The zones are also ordered according to how often you might need to reach them. The zones are:
- Transition Zone: Shoes, jackets, bags and other stuff you grab before leaving the house.
- Need It Now: Everyday stuff like canned food, bulk food items and large packs of paper towels.
- Long, Tall, Thin Storage: Rakes, shovels and similar garden gear to be hung on the walls.
- Large Item Storage: Things like Christmas decorations and camping gear that are rarely used.
- Frequently Used Items: Outdoor gear and sports equipment placed near the garage door for easy access.
- Workspace: A workbench and cabinets for your hobby, whether it's gardening or woodworking.
These are all just suggestions, and the zones you might need may differ. Still, it's a template you can use to get your garage organised so you can actually find what you need in there when you need it.
