Hello friends! It’s time for the first My Five Favorites of 2017 and today’s subject has to be the most searched subject of each and every January – organizing!
If you’re new to My Five Favorites, it’s a monthly series I co-host along with my clever blogging friends Kris of Driven By Decor, Pam of Simple Details and Jennifer of Dimples & Tangles.
This month our guest host is Erin of The Sunny Side Up! Erin has the most gorgeous house EVER that is organized from top to bottom, and her blog is filled with ideas, tips and tricks to help you do the same. Here is just a sample – Erin’s organized craft and school supplies, isn’t that just dreamy?
Welcome Erin and thanks for joining us today!
The beauty of all five of us sharing about the same subject is that you get tons of different ideas! This post, while not the prettiest!, is for those of you who want to take back your garage space. If you live in a cold climate you may desperately be seeking storage solutions so you can get your car in the garage before the next blizzard hits (my motivation for cleaning up the garage this time of year!!)
These storage solutions can all also be used in an unfinished basement, a utility room or even inside a closet if you are short on space!
The bright idea is to take advantage of your walls and creatively think about what you could hang up.
I hung my son’s snowboard on his bedroom wall as functional art. It’s easy to take down when he’s hitting the slopes. Read the tutorial on How To Hang A Snowboard.
HANG SKIS AND POLES
This magical little invention below is one of my favorite garage accessories of all time! Rubber coated hooks are inexpensive, easy to install, don’t take up a lot of space and are sturdy!
HANG ICE SKATES
These long hooks commonly referred to as “ladder hooks” are perfect for hanging skates by their blades.

HANG RIPSTIKS AND SCOOTERS
The little rubber coated U-shaped hooks work well for these awkward-to-store items and are easy for kids to take out and put away their toys.

As opposed to a tool storage chest, a pegboard is flat and can store a myriad of items closeby. A must for oft-used tools! A pegboard is super easy to make and install – I’ll share a quick tutorial soon.
There you go friends, five quick tips on how to organize in your garage this winter!
