Remove everything from your garage, even if you intend to keep it. By getting all your belongings out, you can ensure that the job is done thoroughly and nothing is missed.

Simple hooks and pegs are great for getting gardening tools and other garage necessities up off the floor. This really frees up a lot of floor space.

This is also an ideal time to go through tool boxes and storage containers, sorting their contents. You might discover items you had been looking for as well as things that can be removed.
As you remove items, try utilizing the freed up storage space with something else. Your finished garage will look organized and offer plenty of walking and parking space.
