Back-to-School Organization

Your children are signed up for football, soccer, and tennis. These sports require sport-specific equipment, such as football pads and helmets, soccer balls and shoes, and tennis racquets and cans of balls. With practice at least once a week and playing on the weekends and after school, it seems you are never in your garage long enough to organize the supplies. You are constantly just dumping the equipment in your garage. If your garage was more organized, it would be easier to pack up and go. We have solutions for you in the form of bins, hooks, and shelves to meet your needs.

Wall Hooks
If your children enter the house through the garage, consider a series of hooks on a sliding panel system for their book bags or backpacks. This significantly reduces the clutter in the hallway as children drop backpacks and lunchboxes on the floor as they shed their school supplies on the way to the snacks in the kitchen.

If your sporting equipment can fit in a bag (a racquet bag for your tennis equipment, for example), the bag can hang from a hook. Try one of these specialized hooks with a sliding panel system by Gladiator Wall Systems. The racquet bag can easily hang from the hook, then move to a location toward the back of the garage once tennis season has concluded.

Storage Bins
While the heavier equipment for football can also hang from the sturdy hooks in the same way as the tennis bag, we recommend putting the equipment into a transparent plastic bin and storing it on an open shelf or in a secure storage bin holder from a Gearwall panel. Smaller items, such as mouth guards, can be stored in a gear bag while larger pads and cleats can be placed in the bin. Then, you can simply transport the entire bin to practice!

Overhead Storage
Try an open shelf or mesh basket Gearwall panel accessory for soccer cleats and shin guards. By designating one area for soccer, it is easy to locate the supplies and place them where they belong once the game is over. Ensure the shelf is low enough for your children to remove and store their gear themselves.
