Default Storage Ideas?

Id like to know and see some pics on how you all store and organize your supplies and beer, I cant believe how much room this stuff is taking up. I can store some stuff outdoors/shed/garage, but the beer has to keep at 70 degrees for bottle conditioning and same with the fermentors. My sanitizer and cleaner that I store in 6.5 gallon buckets cant go outside either, its below freezing. I might be better just dumping these after every use.

I store everything on metal shelving in my shop in my garage. As far as the sanitizer, are you making 6.5 gallons at a time. Try making only a gallon or so of the sanitizer. I use a spray bottle.. I mean you only need to hit the items your wort touches post boil..

All of my pots nest... that's one big space saver.
I built my brew station with a shelf under it that my pots and propane fit onto.
Right now, I have all my hoses, strainers, etc. in a large bin.
I'm hoping to find a metal drawer cabinet that can fit along side my brew station for refractometer, hydrometer, ph meter, keg fittings, o-rings, tools, etc.
This is all at my outdoor covered grill/kitchen.
I grill and brew year 'round.

Here is my "bottle-aging-chamber". I store almost everything there besides fermentors, secondaries and pots and burners.

Here's the old printer stand repurposed as a fermenter stand/storage unit. Empty bottles in the corner boxes. Full bottled batches on the right;
