Start by throwing out anything that you haven't used in the past year and don't honestly see yourself using any time soon. Be ruthless. The more you toss the less you have to organize.

Labels might include such things as Garden Tools, Car Repair, Plumbing Parts, etc. Shelves are easy to put up and can hold lots of small items.
