Miscellaneous Storage

Your cleaning products and un-sortable items need periodic cleanups, too. Instead of letting your wipes and disinfectants roll around drawers or cabinets, store them neatly in labeled containers and bins. Create homes for extra items you aren't sure where to store, as seen in this pantry, which contains an emergency kit and laundry supplies.

Garage Storage

Garage with storage and organization.

A Fresh Space

We can’t neglect the space in our home that is constantly cluttered: the garage. Since you may have a mix of items in there, from old décor to power tools, store things strategically. For example, if you have bins full of old keepsakes, keep them on a high shelf out of the way, as seen here. Then, hang your frequently used tools on storage racks so they’re easily accessible when you need them.
