A garage organizer that can make it easier to find everyday essentials, store your home maintenance tools and holiday decor, plus keep your kid's gear in one place. Game changer!I'm not what you would call an “organized person.” Which might be why I'm somewhat obsessed with organization. I love those Pinterest pics of neatly labeled pantries where every container is perfectly arranged and color coordinated. I have whole boards dedicated to saving ideas for getting organized, from the kitchen to the linen closet and everything in between.
When we moved into our new house I made a promise to myself that I would keep our new space organized and create a system for storing our stuff. We use our garage a lot, however we recently had to have a torsion spring repair. It was fixed pretty quickly and now it's been fixed, I decided to get organising. Packing up a house makes you realize how easy it is to fall prey to clutter and chaos. Add in all the things that come with having a child and it's not too long till you find yourself with garage sheds full of things you can never find.
So now I'm starting off fresh and organizing our new garage the smart way. I picked up a Rubbermaid® FastTrack® Garage Rail™ 12 piece kit at Lowe's to get my project going. Have you guys seen these systems?
The Rubbermaid FastTrack Rail is an adjustable, portable system that's easy to install with tons of options for customizing your space. Each rail is made with steel and holds 1750 pounds. Add on a variety of hooks made to hold a range of different objects, from ladders to Christmas lights.
Installation is super easy, you can hang your rails and attach hooks in minutes. The Rubbermaid Fast Track Rail system comes with hardware needed to install. Once you've installed the rail you simply hang a hook where you want to hang your object. Each hook locks onto the rail with sturdy grippers and holds up to 50 lbs. It’s easy to customize and adjust how you prefer!
I was amazed at all the types of hooks you can add to your Rubbermaid FastTrack Rail system: Ladder hook, power tool holder, bike hook, hose hook, ball rack, mesh basket, utility hook and more. Many of the hooks are multi-purpose and can be used for all kinds of crafty organizing hacks.
Cables are something that used to be a constant annoyance for me. When I needed a power cord or drop cable I could never track one down. And when I finally found one it was guaranteed to be tied up in the world's most frustrating knot. Now we've solved that problem. Our cables can hang neatly on a hook where we can find them with ease.
And those aggravating utility tools that you're always tripping on or trying to prop up in a corner. The Rubbermaid FastTrack Rail takes care of that issue so you can hang snow shovels, gardening tools and rakes all in one place. Need a bit more inspiration for how to get organized with the Rubbermaid FastTrack Rails? I've got you covered.
Here's a whole list:
- Store cleaning supplies with the mesh basket hook
- Keep soccer, football and basket balls corraled with the ball rack
- Hang backpacks, bats, raquets, gloves and helmets
- Hang bikes in vertical or horizontal position
- Keep golf balls or baseballs in mesh basket
- Organize power tools, hammers, rulers and tool sets on hooks
- Give weedeater, garden hose and lawn maintenance tools a place to hang
- Coolers and canteens have a place to hang
- Hang tents, sleeping bags and camping supplies
- Hold fishing rods and reels
- Folding chairs, beach chairs and swim floats
No more time wasted trying to find things that are buried in piles of clutter. No more wasting money buying things only to find that we had that tool or those cords all along. No more arriving ten minutes late to sports practice or games because we couldn't find a glove. Just imagine how much time, money and sanity you could save yourself by getting organized with this system!
Tell me moms, what would you store on your Rubbermaid FastTrack Rails?
