What are some ideas for keeping my garage and workspace clutter free?

This is an excellent topic.  With the onset of the New Year, it is a great time to organize your storage and work spaces.  Having an organized garage or shop makes it easier to find the tools you need and to work on projects around the house.  When it comes to organization, space is the key.  By taking time to plan ahead before tackling the mess, you can save time and space to create a one-of-a-kind work area you will want to spend time working in.

Where to Begin?

There are a few different ways to approach the project.  Some may want to begin by collection trash, old equipment, and items that do not belong in the space for immediate removal.  Others may want to begin in one specific section of the area and move throughout in a linear fashion, cleaning and organizing as you go.

Maximize Storage Space

No matter what method you choose, and depending on the kinds of tools you keep, you will want to eventually create an organization system.  Tool boxes, tool chests, stackable storage shelves, and large sturdy bins can all help store tools, parts, and supplies in a safe and organized fashion.  Large equipment such as mowers, saws, or other power equipment should be cleaned and maintained and given a dedicated storage space where they can be kept safely and easily accessed.

Invest in High Quality Tools

One of the most frustrating things about organizing a workspace or garage can be finding storage space for shovels, rakes, and large brooms.  When cleaning out your area, be sure to donate, recycle, or dispose of broken and damaged equipment such as old rakes or rusted and broken shovels.  Now is a great time to invest in top quality tools such as The Handler System™.  This state-of-the-art tool set features four powerful interchangeable heads made of durable aerospace materials that will withstand even the most strenuous conditions.  The Handler System™ is designed for convenient use and storage.  The interchangeable heads can hung on a wall for easy and safe storage, and are readily available for immediate use.

The Handler System™ was invented by Brad Blanchard, an aerospace engineer with 35 years of experience creating precision components for commercial and military jet engines.  The Handler System™ was created because Brad was looking for a better solution for his home and garden tool needs.  He was tired of using yard tools that break and took up lots of storage space in his garage.  The Handler System™ comes with four powerful interchangeable heads including a dirt shovel, a metal yard rake, a leaf rake, and a 24” shop broom.  Each of these parts can be mounted onto a wall or cabinet door and will enable you to have an organized and reliable tool collection.

Finishing Touches for Your Workspace

Once you have organized your equipment and tools, removed all trash and recyclables from the area, and cleaned out room for larger items, you are almost finished.  A few finishing touches such as labeling bins, tools, or shelves may add to the organization and accessibility of your equipment.  You may also elect to add or clean existing mud rugs or floor mats.  Finally, keep a waste bin, recycle bin, and the Handler System™ shop broom out where they are easy to see and use so you will be more inclined to clean the space during and after each project.

By spending just a few hours’ time and investing in quality organization equipment and top quality tools, you can have a workspace or garage that will be the envy of all your friends and a useful space for projects and work.
