7 New Ways to Keep Your Garage and Tools Organized


Sloppy Garage

Everyone has one: a kitchen drawer crammed full of junk that you just can’t bring yourself to chuck. Mine’s brimming with rubber bands, old batteries, mysterious keys, matchbox cars, expired coupons, dusty nunchucks and questionable aspirin. But at least it’s manageable. What isn’t manageable, though, is when your garage starts to resemble that same kitchen drawer but on a larger scale. When your sockets, wrenches and screwdrivers are spread around helter-skelter, it’s practically impossible to work through any project.

Well, we’re here with some good news. We’ve added a great new selection from Excel tools to help bring some sanity back to your garage. Not only are these garage tool boxes built strong, but they’re also available in a wide range of sizes and styles. Check it out:

Excel Tool CabinetsA rolling tool chest forms the foundation for building up a serious toolbox system that would make any mechanic proud. They range from smaller 3-drawer tool chests all the way up to gargantuan 6-drawer chests with built-in cabinets.

Excel Tool Chests—Bench top toolboxes are perfectly sized to stack on top of your rooling tool chest or sit right on your workbench. They’re ideal for expanding your chest’s carrying capacity or work great by themselves. And, they’re available in everything from 2-drawer to 6-drawer sizes.

Excel Tool CartsTool cars are the natural companion for your rolling tool chest or bench top toolbox. Simply load it up with the tools you need for the job, and you’ll always have what you need on hand when you need it. Plus, when you’re done, you can easily put everything back where it belongs instead of leaving little piles of wrenches strewn around your garage.

Excel Cantilever Tool BoxGot lots of small tools and gear that needs to stay organized? A cantilever toolbox is the way to go. They’re equipped with a bunch of individual bins that fold open and close like an accordion, keeping your monkey wrenches fully segregated from your pipe wrenches.

Excel Portable Tool BoxIf you ever have to take your tools on the go, we recommend one of these portable toolboxes. However, if you have a Goth child, we don’t recommend one of these—your son is likely to litter it up with Ministry and Emily stickers and use it as a purse.

Excel Portable Tool ChestThese portable toolboxes are just like the other portable toolboxes, but they have drawers instead of removable trays. The same precautions should be taken if your kid wears fishnet pants and black nail polish.

Dee Zee Plastic Tool BoxMetal toolboxes not your cup of tea? This utility toolbox from Dee Zee is built from lightweight polymer and gives you a wide open space to store everything that’s too bulky to fit in your tool chest (e.g. that jackhammer you don’t want your wife to know you bought). And, these garage toolboxes have built-in cup holders, so you won’t accidentally kick over your brew and muck up the new alternator you started to install.

Dee Zee Rubber Mud FlapsIf these mud flaps don’t seem like they’d help organize your garage, it’s because they won’t. However, they will step the look of your rig up a few notches and protect your rear quarter-panels from slosh spray and kicked-up gravel. Also available as dually mud flaps.
