Garage organizing – Roller Blades

May 5, 2009 by  

I am going to be taking different parts of the garage and showcasing them to help show the detailed ways that you can organize.

Roller blades – they are great for exercise, great for kids….but they can be a nightmare for your garage. How many of you have walked out to your garage and found a mess like this? Trying to step over the roller blades and trying not to break your neck (and you couldn’t even take the credit for being ON the roller blades for that broken neck)

This is one solution to roller blades. This is my favorite solution to use. These work great and run about $20 each. They get everything up off the floor. There is a place for the helmets, elbow and knee pads and even hockey sticks.
But you may not have the money right now to spend on these.

You can use a shelf that you aren’t using somewhere else in your home. You can also find shelves very inexpensively at garage sales or resale shops.
You can’t really see it in the picture but on the white wire shelf next to this one there is a blue plastic bin that is holding all the knee and elbow pads.
This method just takes a little more time and effort for the kids to put their roller blades back on the shelf. So it may take a little more maintenance.

    I got these at The Container Store. I also had seen them in Target, but they were more expensive in Target if you can believe that. But that was also a couple years ago.
    That is so funny you asked. We actually took these down when we were going to sell the house because I didn’t want to lose sell them with the house. My husband took them to our farm and I couldn’t find them until this last weekend. I am getting ready to completely reorganize my garage because we just got a shed and I am able to take a lot of it out of our garage and put it in there.
