Garages are notoriously messy and mine is no different. It just feels like there’s so much stuff in there that it’s impossible to clean anything up! But I’ve been scouring the internet, and I’ve found some really awesome garage organization tips! Try out a couple of these, and your garage will be ship-shape in no time. Good luck! Don’t be afraid to comment below and tell me your favorites!
Garage Organization Tips
Garage Organization: Garbage Bags
Patti from Organized Chaos Online had the awesome idea to hang up her garbage bag roll on the wall! This is such a good idea, and perfect for garage organization. String it through a rack hung with Command Hooks.
DIY Tape Dispenser
Popular Woodworking put together a great tape dispenser that is completely genius and perfect for anyone’s garage. Make a little wooden box to house your different tapes, place a blade on the edge, and you’ll easily be able to find and cut tape quickly and effectively.
Screw Driver Rack
Ben from Homemade Modern made an awesome screwdriver rack which would be perfect for a garage and all he needed was a 2×4! This is a DIY project that’s fun and totally functional as well.
Small Tool Organization
If you want an easy way to organize the little miscellaneous things in your garage, try this out. Screw the lids of clear plastic drawers to the bottom of a shelf, and then fill the jars with the little screws and things. You’ll be able to see the things you need, easily access them, and then quickly put them away.
Tons Of Toy Storage
Wendy from Designed to Dwell uses bungee cords to keep balls organized in her garage. Head over to her blog for the full tutorial. My garage always has a number of balls floating around thanks to my kids and all of the sports they do. With this genius trick, I’ll never lose a ball again. And I can’t believe how easy this is! Easy to make, and easy to use. Thanks for the idea, Wendy!
Keep your drill bits organized by placing magnetic strips across your tool bench. The drill bits will hang there perfectly and you can see exactly what you have to work with. This is a must-try idea.
Better Homes & Gardens recommends installing a garage organization system, with wheels and adjustable shelves. This is a great option because it can be customized and moved around. Make sure you include labels so you can find everything!
Use a pegboard to organize a workspace in your garage. This is a lovely way to arrange things, and it’s easy to change it up as well. I also love how this workspace includes planters & foliage. If your garage gets enough sun, you can even grow plants on your pegboard.
Large Tool Storage
Newly Woodwards put together a rack that’s perfect for organizing shovels and rakes in your garage. It’s just PVC pipe mounted on a piece of 2x4s. Large tools like shovels and brooms can be easily organized here.
Liven Up Your Garage
Handmade Charlotte had a great idea to put linoleum tile on garage walls. This is a great way to spruce up your garage, but it also makes it easy to clean the walls. You could glue clipboards onto the wall to help organize instructions and lists as well. Such a great way to organize and decorate at the same time!

I use an old wall mount paper towel holder for my tape rolls. small pair of safety scissors on a string for the tough ones. out of reach of little ones and easy for the husband to find.

I’m loving this site. So many easy cool anyone can do DIYs for organizing! Thrilled I found you.
how about something like this for rental properties
Dennis burdett says
The masking tape set – up looks good and must be very convenient, however the sides of the roll attract dirt dust and other debris and can be problematic when using for paint lines……just a speck of dust can lift the tape edge and cause bleed thru..could a protective cover be incorporated in this design to address any bleed thru?
Put an old cd or DVD stuck to the outer two sides of the roll it should keep it clean and they will all ride at the hieght of the cd or DVD whichever you choose to use. Like the plastic disc that’s on a new roll of black electricians tape.

This is just the simplistic form to help out. Very well put and yes, Anything can be done to perfect it. A Flip-Top Clear plastic cover can be used.
how about organising racks for those in rental homes
I love the tool rack for outdoor tools. PVC pipe has so many uses. I can’t wait to organize my garage!
