The garage is also great for storing household items that are extra, rarely used, or seasonal, if you want to free up space in the house. There are tons of overhead racking systems and hook or pegboard systems that are affordable, or easy to set up on your own. Always remember to stack the heaviest items on the bottom. Another option for garage storage, aside from buying a PVC, wire racking, or shelving systems, is just to use an old bookshelf or entertainment center to store things on.
