Summertime always brings with it those household activities and chores that can only be done when the weather is nice. Of course, if you live anywhere where summer doesn’t last that long, it’s entirely likely that all the tools you need for these jobs have become buried behind various layers of stuff that hasn’t been used in just as long.


Don’t feel bad, we’ve all been there – but hope is not lost! There’s ways to organize and tidy up all of your various summertime essentials, and we’re here with some friendly advice to get you on your way!


Barbecue Supplies: Everyone gets excited for cooking on the grill, right? There’s birthday parties, there’s the Fourth of July, and sometimes you grill just because it’s the weekend. Once you’ve pulled your grill back out, get a few wire brushes to scrape off the crud from last year, and maybe bring out a kitchen cart to hang onto utensils, ingredients, and the like to keep everything you need right at hand the next time it’s time for some hot dogs!


Sports Gear: Unless you’re a hockey player, odds are if you’re interested in sports of any kind this is the perfect time of year to get out and play a game or two – but that usually means you need a ton of equipment! Uniforms, hats, and the like can be kept in colored athletic lockers for easy access, and anything like baseball bats, golf clubs, or even street hockey gear can be kept in specialized sports equipment storage options to keep them up and out of the way. This will help keep them both close at hand and out of the way of everything else you need!


Lawn Tools: Of course, it isn’t all baseball and barbecues – eventually you’re going to have to mow the yard, trim the trees, and more. Try to organize these tools by size: keep bigger stuff like weed whips and lawn mowers in their own area near the back of the garage to free up space in the front, and smaller handtools like hedge clippers and rakes can be kept on the walls using wall-mounted freedomRail storage safely off the floor and out of the way. Barring that, plastic storage bins are a good way to keep needed tools close at hand (and organized better than they were before)!


Car Supplies: Summertime is a great time of year to do some car work, if you’re the industrious type. Grab some wire shelving to hang onto needed tools like wrenches, tire irons, extra brake pads, or whatever it is you need to do to your ride over the summer. If you want to keep your car clean and shiny, make sure to store your cleaning supplies (soaps, waxes, etc) safely away from other chemicals and/or open flames to prevent accidents and spills.


Once you’ve gotten your garage all tidied up, the next step is to get out there and enjoy summer! (Maybe after you mow the lawn, at least.)
