5 Clever Garage Organizing Projects

1. Magnetic Tool Holder

This magnetic tool bar reminds me of the magnetic knife holder used in kitchens; why not use one in the garage?! Instead of digging through a drawer, keep all of those tools (drill bits, screws, wrenches, nails, etc.) at an arm’s reach. No more digging through a drawer to find what you need!

2. Create Recycle Bin Hangers

With just a few pieces of scrap wood you can keep your recycle bins from taking up valuable floor space with inexpensive materials you probably already have laying around in the garage. This also makes each one easy to access and remove, as opposed to having them stacked on top of each other. Check out the detailed instructions over atHandyman.

3. Repurposed Paper Towel Holder

This is one of those clever “Why didn’t I think of that?” ideas. So simple, too! Use a sturdy kitchen paper towel holder (like this one shown in the picture) for your garbage bags in the garage. Because garbage bags are considerably heavier than paper towels, you’ll want to make sure the towel holder is secured well to the wall. You would also need a skinny rod to ensure that it will fit through the small opening in the center of the garbage bags.

4. Tin Can Wall Storage

Use recycled cans to store small items. Cassie drilled a hole in hers (and decorated it with a little bit of washi tape) to easily hang with a hook on her peg board. Start saving those tin cans!

5. Easy Chair Storage

Make brackets out of scrap wood to hang your lawn chairs on, and keep them out of the way! This would work for so many other things, too! Who knew the unfinished walls in the garage could come in so handy? Go check out the details for this garage project here.
