Garage Storage Cabinets Should Be Used Wisely

April 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 233

We have a garage in our home that at one point had become a catch-all for the junk in our home. I have always enjoyed going out to the garage, but it was becoming less and less fun as more and more stuff piled up. I decided to go out and invest in garage storage cabinets, and have never regretted that decision. They really helped me to get my garage in order, but one thing I did find out is that one must use them wisely and conserve as much space as possible.

I went to a local hardware store to purchase my garage storage cabinets, and when I got them home, I realized that I would have to be very smart about how to use them. I gathered all of my tools and sat them in there in an orderly manner. Then I got all of the outdoor gardening supplies together and arranged them on one of the shelves where they were easy to get to, but out of the way. I then went around got all of the sports equipment we had laying around and placed it into one of the drawers.

I was making good progress, and then I realized that I could actually do some other things to conserve space that did not involved the use of garage storage cabinets at all. I decided that I would get every bike and hang them upside-down from the ceiling. I made sure that they were all secure, but they were also no longer blocking people's way. It was much easier to get around in there once all of the bikes were off the floor, and I decided to take it even one step further.

I hung up a peg board and went around the garage and found anything that was in a bag. If whatever was inside wasn't identified by lettering on the outside of the bag, I would place a piece of masking tape on the side and label it. I got so many things off of the floor and surfaces that it really started to look the way a garage is supposed to look, and then I remembered my garage storage cabinets and realized that I was neglecting them. I looked around at the rest of the stuff laying on the floor and covering surfaces, and realized that it would all fit in the garage storage cabinets much easier.

When everything was cleaned and I had swept, my wife came out and looked at the garage. She said she was very impressed by how much better it looked, and I pointed out how much the garage storage cabinets had helped with that. I am glad that I made that investment, and can easily see them paying off for years to come!
