The garage is our horrible area. It's a one car garage that doesn't fit either of our vehicles very well, so we don't park in it. It has a few shelves put up by previous owners that on't work very well. There is a huge work bench that I try to use to store and organize things (such as tools) that I hate. It tends to be a dumping ground for decluttered items. We have storage out in the garage. Dh uses the garage as a decon area. He doesn't want his work shoes coming in the house (he's a chemist), so he puts his shoes on and takes them off out there. He also stores his work laptop out there if he brings it home. We have three kids, so bikes, scooters, and other outside toys are stored in there.


The rest of the house is generally pretty decluttered and organized. I want the garage to be, too. Besides getting decluttered items off to Good Will, I need inexpensive ideas to organize out there. We only plan to be in this house 1-2 more years, so I don't want to spend a lot of money. Whatever I do needs to be able to go with us or be able to help sell the house.
