Is your garage so packed with bikes, tools and unmarked boxes of junk that you’re forced to park in the driveway? Here are some tips to rein in the clutter and actually use your garage for your car.

Free the floor: Hang bikes from the ceiling or walls using specially made hooks, or install a ceiling organizer to store camping gear and other seasonal items.

Build a shelving system: Organizing pros say systems that allow you to see the contents tend to keep down the clutter more than units with doors that hide the chaos.

Reorganize your recycling: Check out the handy stackable containers available at your local home improvement store to help you sort and store recyclables.

Find a new purpose: Closet storage solutions, like hanging plastic shoe holders, are great for storing miscellaneous items in the garage. They can be perfect for cans of spray paint, small gardening implements and hand tools.

Find a new place for paint: The gallon cans of paint you’ve been tripping over may be ruined if the temperature gets too low. Move them to the basement and free up some floor space.
