Garage Organization – The New Year Resolution

For many, a New Year offers a new chance to make a change. This year is no different. Statistics show that more than 45% of Americans claim that they make a resolution as the calendar turns the page, and “getting organized” is one of the most popular personal goals.

In so many households, the garage is a dumping ground for all the excess stuff that can’t or won’t fit into the house. Tool collections, toys and holiday decorations all have a place in your garage. With so many items to organize and store, it may seem like a monumental task to keep your garage organized. Here are some little-known facts that support this trend:

  • 25% of homeowners with two-car garages say they fill it with so much stuff, they can’t park even one car inside. Only 32% can fit one car, but not two cars inside. U.S. Department of Energy
  • The average American spends one year of their life looking for lost or misplaced items. US News and World Report
  • The average American wastes 55 minutes a day (roughly 12 days a year) looking for things they own but can’t find. Newsweek

One way to get your garage in shape is with a custom smart storage solution by Monkey Bars. Monkey Bars can help minimize the storage space you need to just one-third of the area you are currently using. Unlike other products on the market, Monkey Bars separates long-term and short-term storage by allowing you to store long-term items up high on sturdy shelves and short-term items below on an adjustable patented bar and hook system.

As opposed to traditional cabinets and wall hooks, which easily become over filled thus making your things harder to grab, Monkey Bars uniquely utilizes both vertical and horizontal storage opportunities. This allows for a more efficient way of storing your items and helping the whole family stay more organized.

Since everyone’s space and objective is different, Garage Sense collaborates with each client to determine their own unique plan that ultimately maximizes storage opportunities and design – creating an efficient and well-organized area tailored to their needs.

As Chester County’s exclusive Monkey Bar Dealer, Garage Sense has helped many area residents get organized. Start tackling your resolution today!
