Garage organization is not difficult nor is it expensive. It is however, essential if you want a clean space where everything is relatively easy to find. Whether you have a large garage or just a small space, there are many things that you can do to utilize that space and give yourself a bit of additional storage without taking up the area that you need for cars and other items.
Opt for custom-designed shelves that run from ceiling to floor to increase storage and display space. Keep in mind the size of the things you want to store when determining shelf width and shelf spacing. Also, if you have kids and pets, consider anchoring tall shelving units and bookcases to wall studs to ensure they don’t topple.
You really don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on a garage organization system. You can make one yourself and save money, plus you get to make it exactly how you need it. Just adding a few shelves will help immensely with storage issues and when you utilize wall space, you have much more floor room for larger items.

Came here looking for a mop rec because my current mop head broke after only a year, and, uh oh, you recommend the crappy one I am looking replace. It shouldn’t be that surprising that it broke considering the highest stress point (where the handle screws in) is made of fairly flimsy plastic. I’m looking to buy products that will last for the long haul and not end up in the landfill after a year or two and am willing to spend more to accomplish that. Curious if you guys came across any mop heads without plastic components.
After the jar and can organizers come the milk jugs. More so than just about anything else, uniformity in a storage solution is extremely important. Having all of the containers be the same size and shape allows you the greatest storage efficiency. Using the plastic milk jugs, kitty litter containers, and other plastic product containers is smart because you generate a lot of them and they are all of the same size. And they’re free and you’re recycling! [Original post]
We used 3-1/2-in.-wide strips of 3/4-in. plywood for the strips because plywood is always straight and never splits—but pine 1x4s also work. Birch plywood was our choice for the strips and shelves, but you can also use less expensive BC plywood. You can rip 12 strips from one 4 x 8-ft. sheet—that’s enough for an average wall. We used four sheets of plywood for our system. For shelf edging, we used 1-1/2-in.-wide strips of solid birch (Photo 6). The total cost for our 20-ft.-long system was about $500, but you could cut that cost in half by skipping the fold-down workbench (Photo 5) and using less-expensive wood and plywood.
After reading this article and the updates I was really excited to get the Casabella broom. Unfortunately it’s no longer available on the Casabella site and the one via Amazon is $36. So….I guess the Libman. Thanks for your hard work though on this topic; it was very necessary because of the lack of information available.

I figure it’s worth noting that Walmart also has flat brushes (with flagged bristles) which seem to pair decently with the OXO Dust Pan. The one I have is all black and seems as though it’s meant more for garages/work benches than for “around the house” duty, but it seems like it could work just as well in either capacity. It has an ergonomic handle, so it’s not a perfect fit to the dust-pan, handle-wise, and not *all* of the bristles fit perfectly into the pan when brush and pan are stored together, but it works well enough that I’ve stopped storing the dust pan on the broom and instead store it with the bench brush since I always use them together. (I’m part of that 40% camp that prefers to use a dustpan+brush combo to grab the dust piles produced by the broom — using the broom+dustpan to do the job just doesn’t seem to be as accurate/thorough/wieldy.)
A few years ago I was fortunate enough to have some money *and* a reliable contractor, and the result was a new garage. But once it was done, I couldn’t bring myself to put nails or hooks into the shiny new walls that I had just painted. So I went off to look at tool racks.
The Libman weighs about a third of a pound more than our pick, with more weight in the head, so it feels top-heavy in comparison. One of our panel members loved it, saying “I feel like the weight of the broom is assisting, like the broom is doing some of the work for me.” But most panel members didn’t like the Libman’s heavy head and bristles; they preferred the lighter, more evenly distributed Casabella.
It is very cute. I was confused about what the small odd cardboard cutouts were for but they get inserted into the sides of each basket and the large ones go in the bottom of each basket. Right now using it for holding diapers and little knock knacks.
The Swiffer Sweeper is not a broom substitute; it is a dust mop with disposable refills. You shouldn’t use it to sweep up Cheerios or broken glass, but to capture dust and other remnants left behind after you’ve swept with a broom.
