The Best Family Garage Organizers

Can’t we all just clean the garage as a family? It’s not impossible, but it does take some work to get spouses and kids on the same garage-cleaning page. Learn more in our article: How To Organize the Garage Without Making the Family Hate You.

One simple trick is to get an organization system. This will be a wall hanging package or organization product that takes the guess work (and the procrastination) out of organizing common garage items. Choose (or mix together) track organization or pegboard organization systems

By hanging tools and garden gear on the wall, you’ll open up precious floor space for your cars.

Systems like the Gladiator GearTrack and the Wall Board Pegboard give you control over your garage, even when you don’t have control over your family.

Here are the garage organization products we recommend so that you can declutter your garage in a way that your family doesn’t hate you.

The Advantages of Steel Pegboard Organization

The pegboard design works because it’s so flexible.

Put the hooks in any of the hundreds of holes.

Pegboards give you maximum flexibility wall storage.

We like the Wall Control brand.

This was one of the first pegboard companies to move from fiberboard to steel.

Fiberboard is not bad, but steel is better.

Steel doesn’t bend.

Water doesn’t hurt it.

Steel has no formaldehyde in its composition.

Wall Control galvanizes its steel pegboards against rust.

Why the Wall Control Pegboard is a Good Choice

Pegboards give you the most storage space per square inch of any of the wall organizer systems.

Every hole in a pegboard accepts a hook (well, usually you need two holes for one hook).

These allow you to store 20-30 tools on a simple board.

It’s as easy to add a shelf to this pegboard as it is to hang a hook.

Store everything from screwdrivers to cleaning equipment in one compact space.

Gladiator GearTrack is one of the better storage track systems for the garage.

A storage track allows you to move stuff around your walls without getting out the drill and drews each time.

You use the drill and screws to install the tracks.

Then you use proprietary hooks on the track to store your stuff.

The hooks snap on and snap off.

You can put them anywhere along the length of the track.
