Keeping your garage organized requires proper planning on how to best use your space and maximize storage.

Our garage is one of the least used areas in the house, but it is also the easiest dumping place where everything is put in when not being used.

Organizing all the cluttered items accumulated in the garage may seem impossible to handle, but it can be done.

So, I am sharing with you some of these garage organization ideas to get all of the clutter under control. With a little planning and organizing, you can get a well-organized garage in no time.

1. Mudroom In The Garage Entry

Looking for a mudroom space? Why not turn your garage entry into one? A small space next to the entryway is the perfect spot to hang umbrellas, hats, coats, and backpacks. It's also a brilliant idea to put in a shoe cubby or storage bins to put all your shoes away.

2. Corral Your Sports Balls

With some bungee cords, you can create a ready-access cage where you can store all your sports balls quickly against the wall and kids can easily grab one at the bottom without unloading all the ones on top.

3. Install An Overhead Shelving
