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.

We listed below some of the best garage organization products, and you’ll find many more on our Best Garage Gear page.

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

Systems like the Gladiator Slatwall organization system 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.

Why It’s Good

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.
