FOR THE REST OF THE BARN
Spare shelves, bins, nails, hooks, and even garbage cans that sit unused in your garage or storage shed can often be repurposed as barn organizers. Learn how with these tips, and put your clutter to work.
Dirty-duty tools. Garage-tool organizers (or even closely spaced nails) will allow you to hang and separate your picks, shovels, and brooms, eliminating hazardous clutter while keeping your tools in one place. Tall bins and garbage cans serve the same purpose, but without the convenience of separation.
Brushes and such. Purchase a pre-fabricated brush organizer that can be hung on your tack-room door or against the wall, or better yet, pick up a hanging shoe organizer that’ll serve the same purpose. Totes, baskets, and bins also work as carryalls for your brushes, though don’t keep them as orderly.
Supplement storage. Get bags of feed, liquid minerals, and buckets off the floor where they use space and are easily accessible to scavengers. Store and prep your horse’s feed on a spare table, shelf, or desk; empty bagged feed into stackable plastic bins as an additional space saver.
Handle your hoses. A coiled hose is a happy hose. Store wrapped hoses on wall hooks, in trashcans, or bins to keep them kink-free and out from beneath your—and your horses’—feet.
