Garage Organization Tips

Jonesboro, or also known as the City of Churches, is the fifth-largest city in Arkansas and offers a vibrant community to call home. Downtown Jonesboro is the home of Arkansas State University. The Downtown Association plays an integral role in building up our downtown shops and restaurants.

Garage Organization Tips

  • 1. Pegboards or slat walls make it easy to store on the walls.
  • 2. Do a big clean out before organizing.
  • 3. Store propane, paper products, and paint elsewhere. The garage is not the best place for these items.
  • 4. Line the walls with shelves to keep tools off the floor.
  • 5. Overhead space is great for flat long items that you do not use often, like surfboards or kyacks.
  • 6. Hang tools on a magnetic board to create an organized work area.

Shed Organization Tips

  • 1. Use a pegboard, basket, and hooks to create category-specific baskets.
  • 2. Reuse buckets for garden tools. They are easy to grab and simple to store.
  • 3. A wood pallet can be salvaged and turned into a tool rack or shelf.
  • 4. Turn a filing cabinet on its side with no drawers and make a tool bin. You can add wheels to make even more accessible.

Self storage can help with your extra tools and seasonal needs. With spring right around the corner now is a great time to get your shed and garage in order. Summer projects will need space to spread out, consider renting a storage unit for your winter tools.
