A Month by Month Plan to Get Your Home Storage Organized: May is the GarageBy Decorology @decorology_blog
Create Task Kits. Create kits for various outdoors projects by filling 5- and 10-gallon plastic buckets with all the tools, products, and accessories you need to complete specific tasks such as car-washing, weeding, bicycle repair, and more.
Stash Sporting Gear. Fill tall kitchen trash cans with large and odd-shaped sporting gear. Drill holes in the bottom of bins if drainage is important. Stabilize containers by securing to a wall with short bungee cords.
Organize the Trunk. Clean out your vehicle's trunk. Toss every item that is expired or damaged. Place all trunk gear in a canvas bin or box. Make sure the container doesn't slip by adding rubber or hook-and-loop tape to the bottom.
Tidy Up the Tools. Hang hand tools on a wall near your workbench from hooks on pegboard, magnetic board, or a wall-mount strip system. Label each tool's spot. Put extra tools in a tool box or clear plastic boxes and store on floor underneath workbench.
I've rounded up a bunch of images that I hope you find inspiring and help you rally the motivation to organize the garage.
The chalkboard cabinet and drawer fronts is a great idea. You could always paint yours with chalkboard paint.
A magnetic kitchen knife strip works great for holding drill bits too
Use magnetic spice containers to hold small hardware in the garage
This space has to be the prettiest garage I've ever seen
In the garage, bins and hooks and boxes are our friends
A rolling cart with most used cleaning supplies and tools is a great idea!

Take a cue from Julia Child's kitchen and do the same for your tools!
