Simple Tips to Become the Ultimate Garage Hero

So what if your neighbors are known for their award-winning rosebushes or that awe-inspiring display of shiny cars in the driveway? You’ll be turning more heads than a heavy-duty power screwdriver once they take a peek inside your garage.

That’s right—you can convert that cluttered man cave into the envy of the neighborhood. With just a few organization supplies, you’ll be able to spruce up this space in a single afternoon. Get ready to throw down the gauntlet and get your garage looking gorgeous in no time with these simple tips.

Find a home for everything from nuts to bolts

Where are those six-inch coarse steel hex-head wood screws when you need ‘em? Right where they belong, in your hardware organizer with labeled drawers. Identify everything from bits and bolts to nails and nuts at a glance. Just grab your choice of Avery Permanent I.D. Labels, and personalize and print for free at Avery Design & Print Online. These sturdy labels are designed with stick-and-stay construction that’s built to last.

Create a window into your storage box

When your garage does double-duty as a storage center, clearly labeled boxes make it easy to identify their contents without rummaging through them. When the contents of your boxes change, there is a simple way to reuse boxes and update the information with Avery Removable Labels. When the contents of your boxes change—like when you switch from storing winter clothing to summer clothing—just quickly peel off old label, print new ones, peel and stick. Add a fun image or design for quick reference.

Tag your tools for instant identification

Objects can’t speak for themselves. But when you attach a tag, they’ll be able to communicate important messages, such as to whom they belong, your contact information, warnings, and more. Avery Durable Printable Cord Tags can do so much more than just organize the tangle of cords plugged into a surge protector. Use them to mark tools you loan out, such as screwdrivers and ratchets. Just personalize and print the labels with your name, then wrap them around the neck of your tools. They're tough enough to label all your tools and will strongly remind borrowers to whom they need to be returned.

Start a garage organization revolution in your neighborhood, and lead the way to a clutter-free community. By sharing tips and helping each other get more organized, you and your neighbors will not only build a better bond, you’ll all have garages everyone can be proud of!
