3 Ways to Organize Your Tools

April 11, 2022 | Garage,Organized Living |

Last week we gave you tips and tricks on how to organize your garage, but this week we’re taking it a step further! 

As lots of us go full-force into spring cleaning, organizing our garages, and more specifically our tools are at the top of our to-do list. 

Here are three easy ways to make organizing your tools so much easier: 

Bins on Open Shelving 

Open shelving makes it super easy to see everything you own.

If you have open shelving in your garage, use bins to separate and contain different types of tools. Bins make it easy to not only stack and store items, but you can also grab the bin you need and bring it right to your project. These totes are even stackable, to reduce the amount of shelf space they take up. 


Pegboards allow you to store individual gadgets and tools to maximize wall space. Keep everything on display with pegboards and hooks, so you can find the tools you need at a glance. 

You can use the small attachable shelves and boxes to hold smaller items like nails, screws, and more. 


Large mesh baskets can also be portable while holding even the bulkiest drills and tools. Use these to store bulkier items, and use drawer dividers to separate categories.
