For most of us, there is one room in the house that could use a little more usable storage instead of just being a junk pile.  That room is the garage.  Right now - we have managed to keep ours to the point that we can at least still get both cars in there.  However, that precious space is being threatened by an incoming flow of stuff and projects!

So we are getting ready to do a clean up and organization of the area which had me online looking for storage ideas.  Of course - I feel an obligation to share with you guys!  Here are eight great garage storage accessories that you can use in your own home to get some of that clutter off the floor and into a proper place!

For starters - I know my spray paint can collection that I am starting would be a lot more functional stored in something like this.
Racor Can Rack - Ace Hardware - $14.99

We need something more functional for keeping our recycling in.  I really like these stackable bins from Ikea.
Recycling Bin with Lid - Ikea - $12.99

We also really need some shelving.  I am digging this set that is low enough to go under our bike mounts.
3 Shelf Unit - Home Depot - $19.99

Speaking of bike storage I like this one!  it folds up flat to the wall when you aren't using it and has a little shelf for accessories!
Folding Bike Rack - Ace Hardware - $12.99

Always need a place for those garden tools rather than just having them piled up in a corner or leaning against the wall.  I also love that it has a removable basket so you can tote it around with you while you work in the yard!
Garden Tool Rack - Home Depot - $24.95

I like this lockable hook for hanging heavy duty tools like weedwackers.  Keeps them from being "lifted" from your garage or the kids getting into them.
Lockable Utility Hanger - Ace Hardware - $5.79

You will need a place for sports equipment too!  This wall mounted Ball Rack could be a key player in your organization strategy.  (Yep - that was corny but I am going to leave it.  You all need to accept the fact I may tell bad jokes or puns every now and then!) 
Sports Gear Organizer - Home Depot - $24.95

And this is just brilliant.  It is a magnetic bin!  Keeps all those little screws and nails in place!  And it is portable so you can tote it around with you for all your projects.  Love it!
Magnetic Parts Bin - Ace Hardware - $10.49

So what about you, is your garage in need of organization?  Have any garage organization tips to share?  Lemme know!

Our garage is a disaster. Full of a lot of my son's stuff since he is moving soon. Can't wait to get it all cleaned up. Totally a mess. Great ideas. Hugs, Marty

Cool ideas Jess. I will be doing some revamping in the garage, and some of these items will come in super handy:)

In a weird way this makes me miss having a garage. And a car.

If I ever have them again though (persumably contingent on my leaving NYC), these are some good ideas to try!
