A garage is one of the hardest spaces to keep neat and tidy. Not only is it the catchall for everything that doesn't have a place in your home, but it's also where you store all your tools and sporting equipment.

Let's get the chaos under control with clever hooks and hangers. Keep scrolling for buys that take your jumbled garage to full-on orderly.


A wheelbarrow is a handy piece of equipment to have around but, unfortunately, takes up a large footprint. Grab these heavy-duty steel hooks to hang it up on the wall and out of the way. Bonus: These hooks are also perfect for suspending beach or lawn chairs.

The Container Store

Versatile and handy, this holder can store tools in three different ways: handles can be placed through the loops, in between the loops or can hang from the front hook on each loop. The non-slip rubber design means your tools stay where you put them.


An organized garage starts from the ground up with an uncluttered floor. Not only is it visually appealing, but it's also easier to move throughout the space. These angled steel holders are perfect for storing containers, bins and coolers. Easy to reposition on a rail system, the holders allow you to store most bin sizes.

The Container Store

No more setting a tool down and losing it in the chaos of a project. Slip these stretchy silicone bands over the handles of your tools, and the embedded magnet will keep your equipment secure to any metal surface.


For those who love to spend their mornings on the water, fishing gear storage is a must. This pair of hooks allows you to hang fishing rods vertically or horizontally, depending on what works best for your wall unit.


Stash your hose (or extension cords or ropes) with ease. This rust-proof hanger can be installed indoors or outdoors and will keep your coiled gear free of kinks and knots.


Keep cleaning supplies handy and all in one place with this smart caddy. Paper towels are tucked on the holder underneath the shelf, which accommodates cleaners, sprays and wipes.

The Home Depot

Whether you're trying to organize bikes for the whole family or you're an avid biker with a cycle for every sport, bicycles take up a lot of room in the garage. Give them a smaller footprint by taking their storage vertical. This rack lets you stash up to six bikes in four feet of space and holds up to 300 pounds.

The Home Depot

When you're running short of floor space, the only place you can go is up. This clever ceiling-mount rack is easy to install and holds up to 600 pounds of your need-to-get-out-of-the-way stuff.

The Home Depot

A step up from the traditional pegboard, this modular solution makes the most of your wall space. Constructed from 100-percent recycled PVC, these panels are easy to expand and customize to keep your tools within reach and off the garage floor.
