How organised is your garage?

At this time of year many people are considering tidying up their garage.

 

Fortunately, there's lots of great information and products available for getting organised and making the most of the space you have. 

 

Advice from Bunnings for organising your garage includes:

 

  • Clearing the clutter by throwing away things you don't need or donating them to charity

 

  • Grouping similiar items together using storage containers to make it easier to find what you need

 

  • Creating zones in your garage with specific areas for specific things such as garden and D.I.Y. tools

 

  • Using shelving to stack items and maximise the use of space as well as hanging as many items as possible using the likes of hooks and pegboards.

And what are your top tips for ensuring your garage is tidy, organised and clutter-free?

@Kermit, serves you right, I bet your driveway's chock a block with stretched Hummers, & more parked on the road.

Storage tubs are your friend! Cheap, stackable, tidy - I love them.

Kermit, if that's your real garage, you have a serious problem my friend. I would get my **bleep** straight down to the closest psychoanalyst ASAP!

@Henno, a bit harsh mate, & somewhat misguided.

 

My phsych couldn't help me in that situation, he cherishes driving his glorious F Type Jaguar in his extreme limited spare time.

 

BTW Mr Smartie Pants, I guarantee, that that's not an Australian garage. See if you can pick why, & get back to me.

Sorry Andy, can't tell why. Is it to do with those left hand drive pushies?
I meant no offence to Kermit, just some light-hearted banter to make a subject much more betterer...

@Henno you worry too much mate, I picked that you were hav'n a play, so I went with it.

 

I'm pretty sure that the push reel mower on the left of the pic, isn't available in Australia:

BTW, my psych does have an F Type Jaguar, & he deserves it.

Re: How organised is your garage?

@Henno, dead right I'm crazy, my only regret is that my psych only sees me every 3 months, so couldn't opt for metallic paint.

I've often told him, "don't make me normal, or I'm outta here".

He's a fairly solemn bloke, so it makes my day if I can get a grin from him (he laughed last visit, YAH!!!), so I'll be on his books for a long time yet.

Am I delusional that I'm perfect?
