Organizing your workshop not only helps keep floors and surfaces clear, it allows you to get a much better idea of your inventory, thus saving you from buying more of what you may already own. You can outfit an entire garage with storage cabinets and wall mounts to maximize space, or simply get a small unit that can be rolled into a corner of your work room. Read on to learn how to organize your workshop in 10 easy ways.
