Let's Get Organized --It's National Clean Out Your Garage Day!

(The Jackson Five Family Blog received a complimentary product sample from The Lehigh group to help facilitate this reader review and giveaway. However all opinions are honest and our own!)

Today is the 5th annual 'National Clean Out Your Garage Day'! This is something we struggle with. It seems like we have so many items in our garage. There are toys, bikes, tools, cleaning supplies and so much more. Everything always ends up in the garage it seems, but cleaning out the clutter doesn't have to be an overwhelming or expensive chore. So why not take some time today and start getting that garage organized!

To help make garages safer and more functional this fall, the safety experts at The Lehigh Group are offering these organizational tips to help get your garage clean and organized!

Sort the Mess --Separate your item into categories. Then pitch, donate or sell items you don't use. After deciding what stays, separate the garage into zones for storing each category of items, and then choose the most appropriate storage method for each one.

Go Vertical --Garages provide ample wall and ceiling space to easily convert for storage through use of hanging shelves, pegboards, storing rails and overhead systems. For example, The Lehigh Group makes a variety of Crawford brand flexible mesh storage organizers that hang on the wall and can hold up to 25 lbs. They are particularly suited to accommodate awkward or bulky items, from pet toys to work gloves and camping equipment.


Securely Store Hazardous Items --Place toxic materials such as paint, paint thinner, weed and bug killers, fertilizer and gasoline in high cabinets or lockable tool chests out of children's reach. Use well-supported shelves to store cleaning solutions and vehicle fluids. Tool hangers, like the Crawford brand smart system, work well to store tools and extension cords. The steel rail can be hung on any type of wall. Select models can hold up to 48 tools.

The Crawford brand offers a wide variety of organizational products ranging from basic hook and tool holders to specialty items designed to keep garage and workshop spaces clean, orderly and safe! Most Crawford products are easily found at hardware stores across the country.
