If you have a small home, you are really lucky if you have a garage to provide extra storage. However, if you aren’t careful, your garage can become a jumble of disarray, where nothing is stored properly and nothing can ever be found! If your holiday decorations are mixing with your grandmothers teapots, then some DIY garage storage projects are in order. Creating storage in the garage can free up more space inside the home as well, making your small home a clutter free paradise… Yes, really!
