Spring Cleaning is about to start in the next few weeks. We will be going into our sheds and pulling out tools and equipment to get our lawns in order for the summer. This is also a great time to organize your shed or wherever, you put the supplies for outside lawn care.
Here is a list of things to keep in your shed.
Here is a list of what possible items can be stored in a shed:
- Tools for gardening and mowing, like shovels, rakes, brooms
- Extra supplies for trimmers, mowers, trash bags, leaf bags, utility knife, work gloves, etc…
- Supplies for any bird feeders or animal feeders you may have.
- Set a space aside for your lawn furniture cushions, winter covers for furniture and other supplies used in the winter.
Shed Organizing Tips:
- Put shelving in your shed to get items off the floor. In small spaces, always go vertical with storage. If your floor is uneven, attach earthquake straps to shelving and wall studs. It makes it safer to walk around the space and you can fit more items in the shed.
- If you have several small items, use plastic baskets to hold these items. Sort these items by task or type of items. Place these bins on vertical shelves so they do not fall behind larger items stored in your shed.

As you can see, I add lines for you to add your own items to customize this list for your shed. Laminate and hang this list in your shed. Using a dry erase marker, you can add items or circle items that need to be purchased as a reminder.
I know that when we put the shelves up in our shed, the shed was more accessible to everyone. No climbing over things, no taking things out to get to other things, it really made a difference. Let me know what you store in your shed by leaving a comment below.
