TAKE BACK THE SPACE YOU’VE LOST OVER THE YEARS WITH OUR HANDY GARAGE ORGANISATION TIPS. RE-ORGANISING YOUR GARAGE IS A GREAT PROJECT TO TACKLE OVER A LONG WEEKEND.
TAKE BACK YOUR GARAGE!
Many homes in Australia can’t fit cars in their garages because of all the ‘other items’ stored in that space. A long weekend affords you the perfect opportunity to declutter your garage and turn it into really useful space – hey, you might even get the cars back in there!
Here are some tips on getting the garage ‘sorted’.
SORT YOUR STUFF
Spend the first day of the long weekend sorting through what you have. Categorise it into three piles – ‘keep’, ‘donate’, ‘bin’. Once you only have all the stuff you want to keep, determine the best ways to store them.
THE FAMOUS PEGBOARD
Every workspace deserves its own pegboard – after all it’s the best place to hang your tools (especially RYOBI ones). Fix this securely to a wall where you will have easy access and won’t have to reach far or over extend to place or retrieve tools.
HANG ON …
A hanging unit that houses power tools, batters, chargers and accessories is another great organisation idea. And RYOBI has the perfect solution – the Hanging Wall Storage unit – with or without a lockable door.
Another great space-saving system is a row of hooks. Grab a length of timber thick enough to screw in sturdy hooks or specific hanging devices, like bicycle hooks. Even large nails or screws can be used to hang garden implements or bags. Make the row of hooks as long you need or have more than one row where you can group items. You’ll need a saw and drill driver for this task.
ADMIRE YOUR HANDIWORK
Now, hit the road for quick for a quick outing and enjoy the fruits of your labour when you return and park that car back in the garage where it belongs!
