Default How do you organize your gear?

My gear is all stored in a couple of buckets and loose around my house. My goal tomorrow is to come up with a way to put it all in one spot that makes sense. So how did you all do it? Feel free to share pics of your setup too!

A big plastic tote is a good starting point. Then build a shelf to hold your totes. Then build an addition to add more shelves and totes....

Lol, I have all my gear inside a pantry in my garage. I try to keep all hoses and anything that can trap dust covered.

I'd love to know how other apartment dwellers are storing their stuff. SWMBO is starting to insist that I figure out how to hide everything.

I stupidly responded to empty out her closet and I could hide it in there…

Moving all my gear (for brewing) into the basement (most is already in there). Some goes into the finished room, others into the unfinished side (concrete, so it's good). Getting my brewery built in the unfinished side (should be online by middle of next week). Having it all down there will make it far easier to both brew, clean up (getting a sink installed) and then ferment (I do that down there now). Next place, I'm planning on putting a bar into the basement too. That way, if I have people over, we can both brew, and have home brew at the same time... With no damned stairs to deal with in between.

Get some plastic rubbermaid storage containers. She might consider that. Let her pick out the color? Lol, make it somewhat her "decision" on the matter.

I have the Ultimate Man Cave. I have a barn (2500 sq ft). I have a Cool Room(12 x 13) with a CoolBot that I can get to 50 in the winter, A Rack where I brew and keep the BK,MLT, HLT1, and HLT 2. I have an equipment Room (12 x 10) where I store hoses and other hardware. No GIRLS allowed as it is part of the He Man Women Haters Club. (BTW Married 42 years and counting)

Picked up one of these on sale from harbor freight and added some drawer organizers for all my small brew day stuff. I just toss pots, chillers, bucket sanitizer on the bottom. When not in use I put a tarp over it to keep off dust and cats. I even rigged an 13" tv and a DVD player to have a movie one while brewing.
