Spring is now in full swing and there’s no better time to get organized. An easy place to get started with your spring cleaning is in the garage. Whether you are looking to hang all of your tools and rakes or wrangle sports equipment, we’ve put together some of the top choices to help you do just that.
Organizing your garage will be a breeze with these storage solutions:
The most versatile option is the Rubbermaid FastTrack Garage Storage System Tool Hanging Kit. It comes with two rails and a variety of four different hooks for hanging a wide range of tools.
The Rubbermaid FastTrack Garage Storage System allows you to organize your space according to how you use your tools and other equipment: keep lawn equipment nearest the garage door in summer and move it back in the winter, keep your tools together and closest to where you use them most, and arrange cleaning and painting supplies in the areas that make the most sense.
You also have the option of ordering extra rails and individualized hooks that will help you customize the system to your needs. We recommend this choice particularly for smaller garages since it takes up very little space on your garage walls for only $39.99 Prime shipped.
Another option for a track system is the best selling Gladiator Gear Track Wall Channel. It has a double channel design that is rated to hold your heavier items and is also easy to install at $21.86 Prime shipped. You can customize it with the Gladiator Works 8 Pack of Hooks for $9.89. You can even add a bottle opener to it!
