Once you decide to move ahead with improving your garage storage, the first plan of action is to decide what items you are going to want to store. The easiest way is to group like items together and determine how many garage cabinets you are going to need to store the materials. Too often people will throw up garage cabinets or shelves and then start to stuff them full of things only to realize at the end they either have way too much space left over or they did not create enough space for all of the stuff they had.

Load capacities vary but plastic garage cabinets should be utilized for light duty storage only.
