Work smarter, not harder…

It is important for any DIY’er to know that you should always try to consolidate your work!  Work smarter, not harder as my grandfather always said.

In this article at Easy Garage Storage Solutions | The Family Handyman you can read about some really nice garage storage solutions. They give 4 simple ways to help reduce clutter in your garage and get organized and we agree that these steps would help get the job accomplished.


The article suggests that you install a suspended bike lift and hang suspended shelving from your ceiling joists. Tapping into your ceiling joists in the garage can be a major issue as it can sometimes void warrantees and it is not exactly a safe practice to engage in, especially if you have kids around the house who are often in and out of your garage. 

The article also suggests “out of the way ladder storage” and a place to hang a wheelbarrow on the wall as other options to help get organized. They are not necessarily bad ideas, just poorly thought out. 

There are better ways to clean and organize your garage with a garage shelving kit from you can certainly knock out all four steps in the referenced article in one fatal swoop. Garage shelving kits from are affordable and very effective at tackling garage storage issues.


Instead of trying to install 4 different things in your garage, why not just install a wall supported shelving kit that can do all 4 simultaneously? These shelving kits offer a ton of room for storage both above and below the shelving. The room underneath shelving can be used to store everything from a ladder and wheelbarrow to bicycles and fishing rods.


So why install a bunch of storage mechanisms in your garage when you can install just one product and achieve the same results. Come check out and see how affordable it can truly be to get your garage organized and in order!

    I had been just looking for this specifics for a long time. Right after six several hours of continuous Googleing, finally I received it in your own world wide web internet site. I wonder what is the Google’s problem that doesn’t rank this type of educational online sites closer to your leading. In general the very best websites are stuffed with rubbish.

    thanks for the info

  3. I comment when I especially enjoy a article on a blog or I have something to contribute to the discussion. It’s a result of the passion communicated in the article I browsed. And after this article Work smarter, not harder… | DIY Home Blogger. I was actually moved enough to drop a comment :-P I do have some questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it only me or do a few of the comments come across as if they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I would like to keep up with you. Would you make a list all of your communal sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  4. Awesome read, thanks for sharing

    I’m sure this if off subject but I am trying into starting off my unique web site and was thinking what all is needed to have put together? I am assuming possessing a site like yours would cost a really penny? I am not rather word wide web savvy so I am not 100% good. Any tips or recommendation might be significantly appreciated. Cheers

      It is actually pretty cheap… there is just routine maintenance involved that you have to stay on top of. The only cost is really my time and the cost of the domain… other than that it is all work that I do myself. Email me at if you need any help/advice!
