First you need to decide what your garage tool storage needs are. What kind of work will you be doing? Will you need to carry the tools around with your or will you using them only in the garage? How many tools do you need to keep on hand? What kind of tools with you be storing and how big are they? How much storage space will you actually need?  Do you have any tools that can be discarded or stored elsewhere?

Decide Which Storage Organizer to Get

Once you've determined your needs, you'll find many types of organizers including belts, arm straps, bucket organizers, and upstanding tool cabinets. Each of these options will give you handy access to your tools, keep them in one place and keep them organized within that space.

Many people like to hang tools on the wall behind their work bench. Simply attach a large piece of material to the wall that will hold nails. You can then create specific hangers for specific tools.  For example, two nails about three inches apart will hold up a hammer. This is a great way to save money and utilize vertical storage space.
