3 Must-Have Items for Your Garage

Too often, we fail to take advantage of the extra space that our garage provides. Or, perhaps even worse, we use the garage as a storage heap for all of our extra belongings that we really no longer want or need. If you are in need of a summer project, or have some extra time in the coming months, consider adding these three must-have items into your garage:

An Awesome Toolkit & Workbench

Even if you are not into building things, everyone needs a tool at some point. And if you are into building things, a fully decked-out toolkit and bench can turn your building dreams into reality. At the most basic, make sure you have a few wrenches, pliers, screw drivers (flat heads and Phillips), a tape measure, nails, a hammer, utility knife, a flashlight, and maybe even a few power tools, too.

Shelving with Purpose

Just as important as basic tools is shelving. Shelving can transform your garage from a chaotic mess into a well-organized space where everything has a proper place and is easy to find. You can build your own shelves if you’re up to the task (using your new awesome toolkit!), or buy premade shelves to install.

Something You Love AND Will Use

The third must-have item that you have in your garage should be something that you both love and will use. The and is important here; too many people fill their garage with junk they want but don’t actually need or plan on using. For example, if you want to get in shape and like to exercise, but hate having to drive to the gym on snowy days, why don’t you put together a squat rack and add an exercise bike? Or, if you are someone who works too hard and needs a calm place to relax, why not go the opposite route by adding a television and Lazy Boy?
