Storing Garden Tools WITHOUT Spending a fortune

I was doing some housecleaning on the blog recently and found some ‘treasures’ that I thought could be brought out of the archives and back into the spotlight.

Granted, the photo quality and editing are still reflective of my early days as a blogger, but the content is good – so I hope you’ll join me for “Flashback Week”!

 

Spent part of Holiday Monday tidying up the garage, and I noticed something that I had to share;

This one I learned from my Grandpa, and it still holds absolutely true today…

The best, cheapest, and easiest way for storing garden tools:

storing garden tools, garden tool storage, organizing your garden tools, garden tool rack

We’ve tried the below for storing our gardening stuff – and the plastic backing broke, the tools kept slipping out…
The guy in the photo isn’t happy, he’s stoned.

 

Look at him!  He’s not smiling…

He’s thinking “What a waste of time and money!  My wife owes me big time!”

This means of storing garden tools is not worth the I.O.U. ladies!
Listen to my Grandpa…

If you can bang a nail and drill a hole – you are set!

Attach a 2×2″ or 2×4″ to your garage wall by drilling 2 ½” to 3″ screws through the front of the board and into the studs in behind (it’s important you hit studs, so you may need a stud-finder here)

Drill a hole in the ends of any garden tools that have solid handles.

Map out the best placement for storing your garden tools and then bang a large nail into the wood you just hung, leaving about an inch or so sticking out for the tools to hang on.

That’s it!  It doesn’t get any easier or cheaper than this folks!

Thank you Grampa for the great idea!

    Putting the hole through the handle is smart! Hadn’t thought of trying that. Great tip!
