Garage Organization: how we transformed our garage without breaking the bank

When we moved into our home a few months ago my husband made me promise: “please let’s keep the garage clean enough that we can actually park our cars in there.” Well, fast forward several months and 0 cars could fit into our 3 car garage.

If you’re unfamiliar, here in Houston, we don’t have basements. I grew up in the Midwest and your basement is everything: the ultimate hang out and storage area. In the south, we rely on our garages for storage.

Between holiday decorations, kid’s outdoor toys and all the yard/landscape items, our garage filled up fast. I’ve learned that unless something has a “home” it turns into a mess. So, I was determined to get our garage organized.

My greatest goal was actually to get everything off of the ground. I wanted to maximize storage options on the wall to make more room on the ground.

My garage is far from completed and these aren’t really after photos moreso a “during” phase but I wanted to share links to what I am using because right now is such a popular time to clean out the garage, and I’ve LOVED the 2 options I’ve found so far…

I’ve always used large storage bins. I used to get clear ones and stack them in a closet. For our garage, I wanted to start fresh with 1 solid color; I opted for white because it looked clean and I actually prefer not seeing into the container (because it does look a bit messy when you can lol). I then purchased the Elfa Shelves for these containers. I have a variety of widths and am ordering more, but the 20″ depth allows for the bins to fit. I also plan on adding a few more with drawers!!

Now these are AWESOME! They easily attach to the wall and have all sorts of attachments you can use to hang items… even kids toys! I did 2 rows of 5 of these but plan on adding 2-4 more! These are a budget-friendly option for garage organization.
