4 Tips to Organize Your Garage for Winter

Friday, October 25th, 2019

I probably don’t have to tell you this, but winter isn’t too far away. That means more temperate weather for our friends in the south—and cold for our friends in the north. No matter where you live, you can use these simple tips to help organize your garage.

Store chemicals.

Heading into the winter months, if you live in an area that freezes, it is a good idea to store items that can freeze. If your garage isn’t insulated, these items can be brought inside and stored in the basement. Just be sure to keep chemicals out of the reach of children and flammable items away from heat sources.

Hang gardening tools.

If you don’t keep up with putting tools away after a project, now is the time. Hang your gardening tools to keep them out of the way and safely out of reach.

Clear a spot.

The garage is often a dumping ground for all sorts of things. Take a day or a weekend to empty the garage, and only put back the things you need. If you have other options for storage, there may be a better place for those summer toys or the lawn mower. While everything is out, be sure to blow or sweep out the garage too.

Utilize the space.

While you are limited by the size of your garage, you don’t have to be limited by its storage potential. Many items can be hung up over the winter months. Use wall hanging systems and even the garage rafters or attic space to get things up off the floor and away from salt or melting snow.
