I feel like I am following a trend... First, I get hooked on AutoGeek and buy products and now I am figuring out the best possible way to store my products. I am scared to ask what's next!
Its been about a year since I joined and I started noticing I did not like my garage. I really hate having things on the floor. So...I went storage shopping and spent about $500 to make the garage more clean and organized. Also, I got rid of a lot of things.
I really did not take any before pics as I always forget but I did manage to find some old pics that showcase my garage mess.
Check out the reflection shot and view the mess (Before)

Rubbermaid Fasttrack System 48"
Really impressed with this...I like the variations in hooks and ability to change hook positions rather than having them permanent. I did have to re-drill new holes on the metal bracket to attach the system to studs.
Here is where most of my money went to. Sam's Club Cabinet - $200
Initially, I bought a plastic cabinet because I thought light weight would be best in case I moved. However, once I built it and added everything to it the next day it began to bow. So I decided to get a steel cabinet instead and fork out another $100. There were plenty of shelving units but I like the look of a cabinet best. The wheels on this cabinet where the deciding factor. Harbor Freight Tool Cart - $160
(lots of good reviews)
I had been researching this tool cart for the longest time. My plastic craftsman tool box did not keep my tools organized. Instead, they would always fall over inside the box. Ceiling Storage Bracket - $55
This bracket was really convenient. I hated having my camping gear and storage boxes on the floor.
