Ultimate Garage Makeover

Organizing whiz Kirsten Stein brings fun and function back to a cluttered garage.


Avid outdoorsman Matt Smith loves his new Denver home, but he has never gotten around to making good use of his three-car garage. Originally intended to be the ultimate guy's hangout, this 30 x 40-foot space is instead overrun with sports equipment, mountains of camping gear and general clutter.


Professional organizer Kirsten Stein steps in to lend her organizational know-how and make this space fun as well as functional.Now the walls and ceilings are playing key roles in keeping Matt organized and his garage clutter-free. Find out how she did it below.
