Keeping my car care supplies neat & tidy is easy thanks to this DIY Auto Care Pegboard Organizer. It took only 30 minutes to install and it will serve me well for a long time. Now I can see all my car care supplies at a glance, from those microfiber cloths to Mobil 1™ Extended Performance.

When it comes to car care, I am not one that is scared to get my hands dirty. I already know how to add windshield washer fluid, replace the cabin air filter, and do other basic auto maintenance tasks. And I’m learning more of them each day!

My husband has taught me a number of things about keeping a car running in peak condition over the years. One thing he has always stressed is the importance of regular oil changes. When it comes to properly maintaining a vehicle, getting regular oil changes is essential. While he has changed our vehicle’s oil in the driveway before, we have also used the Auto Care Center at Walmart many times. It affordable & convenient… and I know my vehicle is in good hands there. However, sometimes we do our own oil changes in the driveway. If you do the same, make sure you dispose of the oil properly – you can recycle the oil at Walmart Auto Care Center! And when it comes to selecting the right oil for our car, we always turn to Mobil 1™ Extended Performance. I love that Mobil 1™ synthetic oil protects more than just my engine! By choosing a high-quality motor oil, we are able to perform fewer oil changes and fewer oil changes reduces overall waste! Not sure which oil you need? Use this handy oil selector tool!

First, select a blank wall to install the pegboard. I found a great spot in our garage right next to some hooks, where we hang lawn equipment. Use the mounting holes in the pegboard as a template to pre-drill some pilot holes.
TIP: For maximum support, position the pegboard so that the screws will insert into wall studs. Otherwise, use heavy-duty anchors.

Now it’s time to fill up the pegboard with all my car care goodies! Here are the items I want to store:

  • Motor Oil
  • Microfiber Cloths: perfect for cleaning the car, tires, etc.
  • Squeegee: ideal for cleaning windows
  • Dashboard Wipes: useful for refreshing the interior console
  • Scratch Remover: smart for taking care of minor nicks, scraches, etc.

I also decided to place my Oil Change Tracker printable right next to the pegboard. This essentially serves as my one-stop car care station.

  1. Great idea!

  2. That pegboard is a great way to keep your auto care supplies handy and to keep up with oil changes. It’s such a great way to keep everything organized and I love that I can do it all myself.

  3. My car tells me when it’s due for an oil change. My Grandpa had a bunch of peg boards in his garage, he was always very organized.

  4. I love your DIY pegboard organizer. It looks like it does a wonderful keeping everything organized and tidy.

  5. First of all – yaassss girl for getting your hands dirty! We just got a new car and I have no idea where all the things are. I really need to know where — I ended up just sending it to get a change (it was a freebie though!). But next time, I need to.
    I do love the peg board idea. I don’t like messy garages. This is super simple and can be done in no time!

  6. It’s awesome to keep everything organized so you know where to find them when you’re working on your car! Love this pegboard idea and I’m definitely considering making one at home!

  7. I need to make this organizer. I never know when I should get my oil changed. Usually my car dings at me, but still.

  8. My husband is trying to do something like this to organize our storage area. I like what you suggest here. It’s creative and it is something I can easily do.

  9. This would be great for us to keep in the garage! Such an easy way to organize and get everything up high at eye level when I need it. Great idea!

  10. I love the pegboard, quite handy for someone like me who doesn’t have a car that automatically tells me when it needs an oil change and such. I buy the oils and everything needed to service my car and hand it to the mechanic, and have always used Mobil oil

  11. I love the idea of adding a peg board to the garage wall. It is always nice knowing where your supplues are when you need them.

    My dad taught me how to maintain a car. Only 1 thing he didnt teach me and I ended up learning the hard way. The timing belt. I had no clue that cars were made with a belt instead of a chain. Growing up cars had timing chains. Needless to say, I busted a timing belt and it was the end of that car. Ive never made that mistake again.

  12. I like the idea of using a peg board to organize things. That would be perfect for not only our car stuff, but a lot of other things as well.

  13. that’s awesome. my grandfather used to have the same thing in his garage for his tools. brings back some great memories. needed that

  14. This is a great way to stay clean and organized. Auto maintenance is a messy game.

  15. I seriously need to do this. Right now we have things just scattered about, and have to hope we can find things when we need them!

I Love to Hear From You!
