Garage and Shed Organizing Ideas

The garage and shed are seldom given as much organizational thought as their indoor counterparts. They are also prime spaces to dump items for future sorting. Setting up strategically organized areas can keep them helpful and streamlined through the seasons.

    Great gardening idea and looks nice too . . . A sand-filled trough will keep tools clean and sharp, and the oil will keep them rust-free.

    Vegetable Garden Good Things Garden Tool Container A sand-filled trough will keep small garden tools from vanishing -- and keep them in good working order. Fill a trough or other container with sand to 1 inch from top. Pour in about 1/4 cup of motor oil (sand should have a slightly moist texture); stir. When returning tools to trough, wipe them with a rag. The sand will keep tools clean and sharp, and the oil will keep them rust-free.
