Create More Space with an Outdoor Shed
If you have a yard and a set of appliances or tools used specifically for the yard, it's a good idea to consider building yourself an outdoor shed to house these items. Lawnmowers, hoses, buckets, shovels, etc. can all take up a lot of valuable space in a small garage. You'll find your space more useable if it is assigned based on function.
The main thing to remember once you've organized your garage is maintenance, maintenance, maintenance! Get used to putting tools and equipment back where they came from and do a routine clean-up after every major home improvement project that utilizes multiple items from the garage. Once you realize the potential cleanliness and order your garage can have, don't ever get caught in the muck of disorganization again. Your garage will look better; you'll feel better; and you will have a much easier time utilizing the items and space in your garage. Good luck!
