Hello, and I'm sorry for the lack of information on the pictures. Please refer to the new attached pictures below for the description and the explanation.

Picture 1: Inversion table went to my wife's treatment room (she's a natural healer).
Picture 2: Little desk went inside our house for our little kid homeschool ( tried to sell it but no one wanted to pay my asking price).
Picture 3: Hello bin with clay for crafts went inside the house as it should. (that's the best spot we could find for it).
Picture 4: Little cooler hanging on the ceiling now instead off hanging on top of other items.
Picture 5 & 6: the lights cages have wheels and I don't really have a spot for them, so they just get moved from place to place on the garage (they are big, so hard to find a spot).
Picture 7 & 8: the bikes get moved from place to place, as this is the nature of bikes as they get used.
Picture 9: The blue bucket now is on a corner on the garage.
Mess picture 1: Hand truck is and it has been at a friends house for a while, but it's going on my shed now not the garage. black and yellow bin, is on the attic empty now. boxes on top of the pink slide and black and yellow bin were give aways and they are gone (donated). pink wooden slide was part of a bed we sold, so had two move it out and gave it to the new owners of the bed. plastic bin under the pink slide is on my garden shed now, it's fire wood, so that's a better place for it.
Mess picture 2: Chair holding the box is on the attic as is part of a set, but we don't have space for it inside the house. Nerf guns and basket, donated to same charity as the give away boxes. Cabinet slide basket box donated as well. Little red fire truck sold it. Yellow vacuum on box, sold as well.

Thank you for your time!

BBV price: 1
Note: I'm sorry but you still appear to have just mainly moved "non-shop stuff" out of your shop.  This BB is intended for taking a dirty, disheveled shop and cleaning it up and organizing the tools/materials so that it is a lovely place to do work in.  Your shop looks lovely in the first pictures, you just had a bunch of garage sale stuff in the middle of the room.

- for purposes of this BB, a "shop" is a covered work space.  It can be a dual purpose space (garage for cars sometimes and wood working other times).  It can be open sided or enclosed.

To get certified for this BB, post at least two pictures:
- a before picture
- an after picture that shows significant improvement and at least 1 hour hour of work



Without a basement or attic, this shed of mine has a LOT of jobs to do,  including tool and garden storage,  scrap wood storage,  rabbit care supplies, herb drying AND a covered work space when needed.    It gets messy and cluttered pretty quickly and needs a season clean out and re-organize.   It takes about 4 hours if I'm thorough,  and yesterday was the day!

It's been too long since I've done a major cleaning and organizing of my Hobbit Hole metalsmithing studio/shop.  Focusing on the sand badge for tool care gave me the final nudge to do this.  When I look at my photos I wonder where the time went, but overall I spent about 8 hours on this task.  What you don't see are the piles of dirt, dust, and husks of dead bugs that got swept up and taken out.  I tried to make a careful consideration of each particular zone in this space, evaluating the tools and supplies stored there, asking myself if I am still actively using them, or would they be better off stashed in some less accessible, long term storage spot.  Space is limited in this studio so these are things I need to consider.

I cleared out some large raising stakes I don't use much at all to make room for more spots to hang new hammers that do get used.  Installed a rack for cut disks waiting to be raised into vessels, rather than just piling them on a stump.  I feel like between what I cleared out and what got better organized into more compact zones the space is opened up a bit more.  At least it feels that way to me.  I like having open surfaces readily available to lay tools, supplies, or projects out on as I'm working.  Those open spaces were getting clogged with stuff.  Now they are again open and ready for fresh clogging!

Again, it often looked like I wasn't getting anywhere as one zone got cleared out, cluttering up the rest of the space, until it's area was swept clean and all moved back in.

An after shot of the left side of the room. There's still a lot of stuff, but it's more organized and covered in far less general shop funk.

Shelves over by the torch station are in much better order. I even found space to store extra wax on the bottom shelf, giving that a better home than where it was perpetually sitting on a chair.
