Organizing Your Garage Just Got Easier — and Cheaper

By , dealnews contributor

So is this really a dealnews garage sale? Well, kinda sorta. These deals are on items you'd keep in a garage for handy work and storage. You won't find any bargains on Aunt Ethel's used, moose-themed china, or an endless parade of second-hand bread makers, but instead a powerful LED flashlight, overhead storage shelving, a backup generator, and more. Looking for a bigger hodgepodge of garage gadgets? Be sure to check out our daily tool and hardware deals for more.

  1. UltraFire CREE LED Flashlight bundled with Rechargeable Lithium-Ion 18650 Battery and Charger
    Store: YallStore via eBay
    Price: $15.99 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $6

    Is It Worth It?: Talk about a bright idea! This flashlight measures 5.25" and features 1,000 lumens of brightness. Just make sure to use 18650 lithium-ion batteries; using a CR123A battery will overheat and burn out the bulb.

  2. Duracell 1,000W Gas Powered Inverter Generator
    Store: Legend Micro via Rakuten Shopping
    Price: $199 with free shipping EXPIRED
    Lowest By: $48

    Is It Worth It?: You knew Duracell made durable batteries, but did you have any idea they make inverter generators with ample muscle? This 27.8-lb. 2-stroke generator is the lowest total price we've ever seen; it features a 2/3-gallon fuel tank and will run for five hours at half load or three hours at full load. Note that you can't buy this in California, as it doesn't meet state emission standards. It runs quiet, rated at a modest 60 dB for campsites or RV parks.

  3. SafeRacks 48" x 96" Overhead Garage Storage Rack
    Store: Costco
    Price: $149.99 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $12
    Expires: May 31

    Is It Worth It?: This study overhead storage rack system comes in three drop ranges (12" to 21", 18" to 33", 24" to 45"), and speaking of drops, it's tied with our January mention in price; most places charge $200 or more for such an item, too. The rack can support up to 600 lbs. and features industrial grade steel and ceiling brackets. Note that non-members pay $7.50 more for this deal.

  4. Husky 3.8" Air Ratchet Wrench
    Store: Home Depot
    Price: $29.88 with $5.99 s&h
    Lowest By: $30

    Is It Worth It?: If you need an air ratchet wrench for making those home repair projects move faster, this Husky tool is perfect for the job. It features 65-foot-pounds of torque, forward/reverse rocker, 360-degree exhaust diffuser, twin pawls, and more. A part of The Home Depot's Husky Air Tools Sale, this handy wrench is $30, though other items start at $19.88. Spend more than $45 and you qualify for free shipping, to boot.

  5. Chamberlain Rolling Code Garage Door Opener Keypad
    Store: Lowe's
    Price: $20 with free in-store pickup
    Lowest By: $4

    Is It Worth It?: If you are tired of opening and closing your garage door by hand, take a look at this garage door opener; it's one of a half dozen wireless garage door remotes and keypads on sale at Lowe's. The Chamberlain Rolling Code Garage Door Opener Keypad features easy 1-button programming, illuminated keys for nighttime use, and more.

@pondfish Thanks for letting us know, we omitted one of the numbers. The correct deal price is above.
You have SafeRacks priced about $180 less than Costco is charging.
