Garage Toy Storage

A garage toy storage system is a great tool if you are like many parents who find it difficult to throw out old toys your children no longer use. Your garage is a great place to spirit away some toys for a few months to reintroduce them to your children at a later time. You just have to have a storage system in place or the kid’s toys will overtake grownups toys, like your car and your ATV.
