I am so excited to share this post with you, because truly, it has changed the way I feel about our garage completely! Our garage used to be the one room in the house that I couldn’t stand to walk in. It was a complete mess with very little in the way of organization. Since we live in a smallish house, it had become the dumping ground for everything that we didn’t have room for in our home, as well as my workshop, storage space and the place to throw all of the kiddos sports equipment…with absolutely no order at all! That is until now, thanks to Newell Rubbermaid FastTrack!
Here is a bit of the before. See how everything is just thrown up against the wall? And the golf cart is sitting almost on top of it! Makes me cringe for sure!
That’s where this fabulous organizing system from Rubbermaid comes in! The FastTrack Garage Organization System is easy to install and allows you to store more by making use of your entire wall…not just where the wall studs are located!
So here’s what I started with! (I say started with, because I’m going to expand my storage to the other side of our garage as well soon!)
3 – 48 Inch FT Rails, 3 FT Multipurpose Hooks, 2 FT Utility Hooks, an FT Cooler Hook, 3 FT Hardware Packs and a Ladder Hook that I picked up from The Home Depot. Then a Vertical Ball Holder, Wire Basket and Shelf with Brackets that can be purchased online only via Home Depot.
I started by installing the rails and bracket using a stud finder and laser level to make sure the rails would be strong and straight.
Now everything has a designated spot and I can actually see what we have! As you can see, we are a golf loving family. The golf equipment alone can take up quite a bit of space, and there isn’t much worse than trying to find your golf shoes in a mess.
Both kids also love to play basketball and football. Having those rolling around the garage floor is no good at all. This amazing vertical ball holder holds them all and is easy to use too!
The different sized hooks are perfect for holding Kate’s skates and helmet, while the wire basket is a great place to store her knee pads as well as golf balls, baseballs and tennis balls. The amazing hooks snap right on to the rails, and if you want to remove or move them and change things up, you simply lift the latch and take them off of slide them over!
I was able to hang the weed eater, cooler, our tackle boxes and our extension cords with ease. The wire shelf was the perfect place for our golf club cleaner, golf cart heater and the rest of Matt’s golf cart maintenance supplies.
It’s like organization heaven up in here!
It even fit behind the awkward in home humidifier that we have so I could hang our ladder on the other side!
I love the FastTrack Garage Organization System so much! It’s so nice to be able to see and access all of our things without having an anxiety attack…we also aren’t running over our equipment with the golf cart anymohttp://goo.gl/QMdhCVre, which is an added bonus!
So…could your garage use a little organization?
