Monday Motivation: Garage Organization - It's All In The Details

While browsing Pinterest for creative storage ideas, I found some interesting ideas for storing items in the garage. 
This system works well and uses storage containers that are readily available at most department stores and/or hardware stores.   I've used something similar in my craft studio for years and it's served me well.  Just make sure you have all of your items purged and categorized before you buy containers so you won't buy the wrong size.

I thought this was a great idea for the workshop area.  It reminds me of how stores display their merchandise.  You'd just need to make sure that the boards folded far enough out of the way to not block the work surface.

I love this idea for boots - in fact, I'm getting ready to do something similar on my back porch for our muck boots.

This is great to hang right inside your garage door to make car washing go quicker.  You could also use a metal or plastic mail box.

Bungee cords, wood strips, and large nails are all that is needed to put this organizing system together.  I love the bungee cords for holding the balls together.

If you're not on Pinterest and you'd like an invitation, just email me and I'll send you one.  Pinterest is a fun (and free) site that allows you to "pin" your favorite pictures from the web onto your own virtual "pinboard".  I have to admit that I'm a bit addicted.  I used to tear dozens of pictures out of magazines and store them in binders and file folders.  Now I just pin them on my Pinterest boards.  Love it!
