Organizing the Garage

When the weather gets warmer, it’s always time to think about organizing the garage.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Gladiator GarageWorks. All opinions are 100% mine.

 Organizing the Garage with Gladiator

Our driveway wraps around to the side of our home where our garage is.  Because of this, most of our guests end up parking outside our garage and walking through the garage before entering our home.

This past winter, it was just too cold to deal with the garage chaos.  Instead, I did a lot of apologizing to my guests.  However, springtime is here, and it is time to start cleaning and organizing!

Here’s what my garage looked like before:

Garage Storage BEFORE

We do a pretty good job of not keeping a lot of junk, but with a family of five, we manage to have a lot of things.  The unorganized clutter was embarrassing and a better storage solution was needed.

Garage Storage - AFTER

The timing was perfect when I was asked to partner with Gladiator GarageWorks and show my “Spring Keeping” with their great product.

Gladiator sent me the highly-rated Premier Series Modular GearBox.  It was delivered almost fully assembled.  I only had to add the side bumpers and wheels – which was really easy.

I love that the GearBox has a round key door lock.  Although I am currently storing my kids’ things inside, I have the option of storing our power tools in a safe place – out of their reach!

The heavy gauge top mat of the GearBox is cushioned and removable, providing a work surface that is great for small repairs. The cabinet has a bucket-top design that keeps your tools and small parts from rolling away

The GearBox travels on durable five-inch by two-inch casters — the rear casters swivel for easy steering, and the front casters lock the unit in place.

Gladiator Storage

The Gladiator GarageWorks Premier Modular GearBox provides versatile and accessible storage for the tools, parts, and household items that you keep in your garage. The GearBox features a non-slip, cushion-lined shelf that extends 20 inches beyond the cabinet front, ensuring easy access for loading and unloading. You can also remove the tray glides and reinstall them in different positions to customize the GearBox for your tools and gear.

Gladiator Garage Storage System

I was such a fan of the Gladiator Gearbox that I went ahead and ordered some additional storage system from their line.

The ball caddy allows access to any ball in the caddy, and you do not have to pull out other balls in the process.  The basket is larger and stronger than I expected.  The channels were easy to hang using screws, and the hooks are great for hanging all types of things.

Now I can be proud of the garage and welcome my guests in!

Garage Sports Equipment Organizer

Check out this easy garage sports equipment organizer.

We are in the middle of baseball season here at the Davis household, and there’s a lot of equipment thrown around in the garage.  I was tired of stepping out of the house and tripping over bats and cleats.  So, I purchased Rubbermaid’s FastTrack 5 piece kit.  I needed some organization FAST.  And, I have to tell you, this little kit provided the sports equipment organization we needed!

Now, the garage is my husband’s domain, but he was quickly on board with this sports organization project.  Probably because this little FastTrack system was so easy to install. FastTrackSportOrganizationSTUD

The directions are easy to follow, and Steve had the thing up in no time!  {Look at my stud looking for a stud.}


^ Seriously.  It’s just that easy.


I (well, actually Steve) added a shelf to the top of the rack for even more storage.



The shelf was just a new piece of wood and some brackets.  But I wanted the new piece of wood to look rustic and old, so I painted it with a really simple technique.  First, you paint a section of the board, then you dip a rag into the water and rub the paint in and over the board.  You’re basically washing the wood with paint.  The end result is a lightly “stained” piece of wood that still lets the beauty of the wood grain shine through.


A chalkboard weekly organizer was also added to the sports center.  I had an old frame and painted the backing with chalkboard paint.  Then, I printed out the header (Davis) and the days of the week.  To see how to get perfect chalkboard lettering every time, click HERE!



We love the garage sports equipment organizer!
