Clever Shoe and Hat Storage — There always seem to be shoes that clutter up the front entryway. Solve this with creative shoe storage in the garage near the entrance to the house. Hanging these shoe caddies on the wall keeps the floor clear and you can easily find the shoes you want to wear. The same goes for hats! Along the same wall, maximize space by installing simple hooks to hang up backpacks, bags, and purses (shown far right in the photo).
You can do the same thing with winter gear like snowboards and ski pants! Hanging bulky gear on the garage wall saves space and allows wet clothes to dry without making a mess!
