Turn your garage from embarrassing to envious


We just recently moved to a new neighborhood where the kids play every afternoon with the neighbors. We have toys scattered all over the yard and in the neighbor's yard. It is an absolute mess and I love it. oh boy, I can see how a garage can quickly get out of control. Garages are hard to hide the mess unlike that catch-all closet or room in your house. Just keep in mind when organizing, whether it is kids playing or you are working in the yard you are worn out by the time you go in. So having an easily manageable organizational system is crucial to maintaining an orderly garage.




Did you know that 50% of homeowners named the garage as the most disorganized area of their house? I am going to share with you some of my favorite garage organization solutions, you don’t have to be embarrassed by your garage.



Declutter, Declutter, Declutter

Organizing your garage can be an overwhelming task. The first thing we do is start pulling everything out, sorting, and quickly tossing things that we know we do not want to go back into the garage. If you don’t have an afternoon to dedicate to your garage, I would recommend not pulling it all out. Just tackle a container, shelf, or area a little bit at a time. Check out this quick toss list to help you determine what goes back in the garage.​​​​​​​​

Toy Storage Solutions

We use similar stacking bins like these for our toy storage. There is no order or labeling. The kids can grab toys without the help of an adult and can easily put them back. They know that is their area. It is perfect for us in this stage of life. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when deciding on toy storage options in the garage.

1. Keep it simple- they are tired when putting it back and it needs to be simple.

2. Bins that are easy to hose off- Outdoor toys get dirty and so do the bins

3. Recycle old bins & shelving- Kids don't care if it all matches. As I was cleaning out my garage, I realized that we needed a new container for chalk. I grabbed an old bin that I would have otherwise thrown out.



You do not have to have a garage that you are embarrassed for the neighbor to see. You can have an order and a functional garage. If you apply these three steps, you will have a garage that the neighbors are envious of.
