Garage Organization :: Monkey Bars Bike Rack Giveaway & Discount

Planning to organize your garage in the New Year? Typically the best way to keep your garage organized and clean is to get items off the floor. Using the walls and ceiling space to create additional storage options is key and the Monkey Bars garage organization system can help you do it. They offer a versatile shelf-rack system that allows home owners to customize storage solutions based on their needs. I’ve seen it first hand in action and it’s so simple and so brilliant.

Overcoming Procrastinating and Garage Organization Steps

It’s easy to get buried in a large task like organizing the garage and it’s something most of my clients dread. One step in overcoming procrastination is to take baby steps. Instead of having tasks that may take hours to complete, break it up into smaller tasks.

To avoid getting overwhelmed each task should take no more than 30 minutes to complete. For example, to organize the garage it may take several days and your task list may look something like this:

Garage Organizing Task List

1. Categorize the items in your garage (recycling, tools/paint, sporting equipment, automotive, holiday decorations, etc.) – 30 minutes
2. Group the contents in the garage (include donate or trash groupings) – 30 minutes
3. Order special trash and donation pick-ups – 10-15 minutes
4. Leave out items for trash and donation – 10-15 minutes
5. Determine the best layout for your garage (hire professional if needed) – 30 minutes
6. Buy appropriate size bins, boxes, cabinets, etc. and labels – 30 minutes
7. Put items in appropriate storage bin or box (label each) – 30 minutes (break up into multiple tasks if over 30 minutes)
8. Install cabinets (hire professional if needed) – 30 minutes (break up into multiple tasks if over 30 minutes)
9. Install shelves (hire professional if needed) – 30 minutes (break up into multiple tasks if over 30 minutes)
10. Sweep garage floor – 15 minutes
11. Relocate items to their new location in the garage – 30 minutes

Happy Organizing!
