A garage is so much more than just a space where you park your car: it stores gardening and power tools, toys for the kids, sports equipment, and all those things we currently have no need for, but surely will at some point in the future. If you live in a house, it’s highly probable you cannot imagine your life without a garage, so it’s double important you keep it a tidy, organized and enjoyable space to be in. Here are eighteen ideas to show you how.
1. PVC pipes
You can use labeled PVC pipes to organize your gardening tools instead of having them lying around and getting in your way.

Use a magnet strip to keep all of your drill bits organized. This way, they will be easily distinguishable and you will always find what you are looking for.
