The garage is one of the hardest areas in the home to organize because of the large number of items confined to a small space. The culprits are usually tools. There are different tools for different tasks, so oftentimes, they can add up and cause clutter in your garage area.
One solution to this is tool storage. Organize the tools in your garage into different categories using different sized, brightly colored plastic toolboxes. Group tools together by function and get several different toolboxes, each chosen with specific tool categories in mind.
Label them clearly so that the next time you go to reach for a specific tool, you know exactly where to find it. Storing them in toolboxes also protects them from being stepped on or dropped frequently as well as from water or heat damage.
