Autumn is the perfect time to store away the remnants of summer in your garage; tidying away anything you won’t need until next spring. But it doesn’t take much for your garage to get out of control! Follow our top tips to find out how to perfectly organize your garage for fall. And remember, organizing your garage properly now will save you lots of time and energy in the spring.
Before you start…
Before you start organizing your garage for fall, it’s a good idea to have a clear out to get rid of anything you no longer need. You’ll be surprised how much storage space this will free up!
Then pick up a couple of VELCRO® Brand Easy Hang™ Straps. To maximize storage space in your garage, it’s important to make as much use of wall space as possible and our straps are great for hanging large, bulky items on the wall.
How to organize your garage for fall
Bikes are big, bulky and take up a huge amount of floor space. Fortunately, there is a clever way to store bikes in your garage which is much less space-consuming.
Fix a strong hook to the wall or ceiling of your garage and hang your bike off it with a VELCRO® Brand Easy Hang™ Strap. You’ll be amazed by how much space you instantly free up!
It’s unlikely that you’ll need any beach chairs over the winter so keep them neat and tidy by creating an organized space for them to be stored over the colder months.
Simply hang each folding chair off the wall of your garage with a VELCRO® Brand Easy Hang™ Strap for easy, space-saving storage. When summer swings back around, simply clip them off whenever you need to use them.
Hose pipes & extension cords
Garden hose pipes can take up lots of space in your garage if they’re left unraveled on the floor. Use this neat trick to keep them organized all year round.
Wrap up your hose pipe with a 23 inch – VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® fastener and then hang it on the wall with a VELCRO® Brand Easy Hang™ Strap to keep it out of the way while you’re not using it.
Every gardener needs a wheelbarrow but they’re a pain in the neck to store without taking up all the floor space in your garage. Solve this problem by hanging it off the wall with a large VELCRO® Brand Easy Hang™ Strap (they’re strong enough to hold up to 300 pounds)
