If you have a light switch in your garage, you could utilize this location to install an outlet/switch combo. As the name suggests, an outlet/switch combo has both a switch and an outlet, which fits into the existing location of your switch inside of the receptacle box. There is no need to cut into or disturb the drywall. The obvious thing to note is that this will be useful to those who are okay with the new outlet location to be located at the light switch.

Since I’ve been remodeling the garage in our home, I’ve had new drywall installed and gone through the steps to prep and paint the walls. Prior to getting the walls up, I knew I would have the opportunity to run a new electrical circuit and install some outlets so that I charge and plug in my tools. I also planned to install a wall-mounted garage door opener near the garage door, which I would need to run electrical and provide an outlet for.
