#6. Organize Your Garage with Old Kitchen Cabinets

If you happen to remodel your kitchen or an old bathroom, don’t throw away the ugly cabinets. Organize your garage by attaching the cabinets to a side wall. Add a 2 inch hardwood board on top of the bottom row of cabinets to create a counter for additional storage. Hang the top cabinets overhead at sufficient distance to accommodate the items you wish to store on the counter. and if the door latches are weak or broken, use rubber bands to keep the doors fastened shut.

#7. Organize Your Garage with Shelf Brackets

The easiest way to organize your garage is with shelves held up with cheap metal brackets. Buy hardwood boards or shelving to fit the length of your garage wall, then suspend the shelves on metal shelf brackets at a distance of 3 feet between each bracket. For especially heavy dusty shelving, just add another shelf bracket at the center. And if you choose a shelf bracket that includes a closet rod hook, you’ll be able to suspend rods under your garage organizing shelves, for hanging tools or a tier of hanging metal bins.

#8. Organize Your Garage with a Heavy Duty Adjustable Shelf

O
rganize your garage cleaning supplies by building a heavy duty adjustable shelf to suspend from the ceiling. Using cheap zinc chains and perforated angle iron that attaches to your ceiling, you can organize your garage by using the space between your garage opener and your car, or the ceiling over walkways. Begin by attaching a fence (back) to your shelf, then insert a hook screw at both ends and one at the top center of your fence. Attach the zinc chains to the hooks and suspend your heavy duty shelf from the ceiling using perforated angle iron. Adjust the height of your heavy duty shelf as needed.

#9. Organize Your Garage with a Peg Board

A peg board offers a cheap way of organizing your garage by using the walls to hang things. You can find various sizes of peg boards at your local home improvement store. Choose one that will fit the back wall in your garage. Then by 2x4 lumber to build a square frame behind your peg board (2 length pieces and 2 width pieces).

In addition, to optimal garage organization with a peg board, buy peg board hooks that are one size smaller than your board holes. This will increase the strength of the hooks and allow you to hand heavy objects from them. Attach the 2x4 lumber to the back wall of your garage to form a square. Use toggles if you are hammering into drywall; or better yet, attach the boards to the wood beams in the wall.

Hammer the peg board to the wood frame and start organizing your garage with the peg board hooks. Hang garden tools, extension cords, work tools—anything that clutters your garage.

#10. Organize Your Garage with Metal Hooks

You can attach metal hooks directly to your drywall or wood beams to organize your garage in a cheap, simple way. Hang the hooks in a line, then suspend extension cords, garden tools, work tools, broom or mop
