Start by doing a deep clean of your space. Remove your tools or larger items that are being stored and do a deep clean of the workshop or garage.
Move your items into three piles: what you plan to keep, what should be thrown away and what you no longer need but is in good enough condition to be sold or donated.
Organize the items you are going to keep by their use. For example, group all your Christmas decorations together, and then your gardening equipment and mechanics tools. Once you have everything grouped together, you will have a better idea of your storage needs.
If necessary, you can buy additional storage cabinets or shelving units for your space.
It is also important to use lockable safety cabinets for sharp tools as well as paint, oils and thinners so that they are out of reach from children.
