The Rubbermaid® FastTrack® is quick and easy to install! You can set it up with in minutes. It is also very affordable! The 48″ Rail was only $9.97 and the 84″ rail $15.97. I was able to get everything I need to get organized from The Home Depot! They even had a great display wall with an easy demonstration panel. I was able to try out what I needed before getting home! The Home Depot made everything very easy for me to locate as well. In fact, I will be going back this week to get another panel to complete another wall!

So this Father’s Day I wanted a clean and organized space just for me. No more boxes and toys laying around. My tools needed a space of its own, so I went to The Home Depot got the Rubbermaid® FastTrack® panels, rails and attachments and went to work! Here is a quick tutorial on how you can get organized and clean out your garage or shed too!

Here are my ideas for organizing your garage with Rubbermaid® FastTrack®

1. Take Everything Out! Don’t leave anything behind. Pick a nice day where you can literally take it all out and sort them into piles! I created a pile for; Trash, Keep and Sell/Donate
2. We had boxes from where we moved that still had not been opened! Go through everything! Truth is, if you have not used it in a year, Get Rid Of IT! You don’t need it! Donate it or Sell it!
3. Our kids had toys in there that they had not used in years, give them to a neighbor friend who has young kids or sell it!
4. I had tools, camping gear, and other well junk that I had not used in a while and I purged too! You get the idea, Moving on!
5. Once you have made your piles and gone through and organized them, make a clean sweep in your Garage or Shed. Sweep, Wash the floors, Clean the windows.
6. Slowly bring back in what you know for sure you want kept in there! Start in the back and move your way to the garage or shed door!
7. I put most of the large items in the back like the large containers filled with all the holiday decor.
8. On the sides that is where I get organize with Rubbermaid® FastTrack®. I kept my yard tools on one side and other tools for wood working and maintenance on the other.
9. Then I ended with putting the lawn mower.How to install the Rubbermaid® FastTrack® system
