For many of us in the US, now is not the optimal time of year to be reorganizing the garage. But that doesn’t mean we can’t plan for warm weather organizing now! I have rounded up several smart ideas to help you organize your garage, each of which uses supplies that can be found at the dollar store.
ORGANIZE YOUR GARAGE WITH ONE TRIP TO THE DOLLAR STORE
I have been meaning to try this trick for years. Utilize the space between your garage wall stud to create a storage area for all the balls that would otherwise be rolling all over the floor.
My spray paint collection is so out of control that I wouldn’t even be able to fit it all in one shoe holder. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make use of this fantastic solution!
Plastic baskets and bins are lifesavers when you are dealing with kids toys. As a bonus, this solution is as handy as it is colorful.
If you have a dedicated workshop in your garage, you should check out this post for tips on keeping your tools stored neatly. You can find pie plates at the dollar store and use them to store circular saw blades and sanding discs.
Instead of storing leftover paint in the giant gallon paint cans that your paint originally came in, decant the excess into clear mason jars!
Kids haphazardly leaving their riding toys all over the garage? Map out dedicated “parking spots” for each toy with tape!
I will admit that I am terrible at remembering to recycle old batteries. Maybe a dedicated recycling station would do the trick?
This idea was originally used to keep craft tools tidy, but you can use dollar store permanent markers to outline your garage tools as well.
Keep like hardware together by separating them into jars and mounting the jars to existing shelves.
