Fishing Rod Racks 2
Wiphany Fishing Rod Racks are just one storage solution for your garage. AMAZON

If you're like me, you sometimes wonder why your garage feels so disorganized. That's especially true after the holidays when it feels as if space is at a premium. Short of donating and discarding gardening tools, paperwork, sports equipment and other items, there seem few other ways to optimize space.

Some of us forget that many of the same organizational strategies and products that work inside our homes also work in the garage. Plus, there is an array of specially constructed products built especially for that space.

Highly Rated Products To Maximize Your Garage Space

When you want to organize your garage, the task can seem overwhelming, perhaps even more so than when you organize items in your house. At least there you have closets and space under beds! Clearly, that's not the case in your garage. Don't despair. In fact, get your gratitude vibes going because there are plenty of products to help you create the orderly garage of your dreams. Below are 15 of our favorites. As always, the prices listed may fluctuate over time.

The Fleximounts Black Steel Overhead Garage Storage is adjustable so it can fit over a garage door. Fleximounts

I'm one of those people with boxes of paperwork, containers of holiday items and all types of gardening tools in my garage. Sure, I could stack them all on the floor in the back, but that takes up valuable space for my car. The best solution I found was overhead garage storage. The Fleximounts Black Steel Overhead Garage Storage is a great choice because the gride is welded to the frame. That means your items––and the unit––will remain in place so you or someone else won't be injured. It measures 48 inches by 96 inches has adjustable height, so it fits over garage doors, too. That means you can install more than one if needed.
