How do I maximize my garage space?

I have come to the realization that I gradually turned my garage into a storage unit. It didn't happen overnight, of course, but because I am the kind of person that tends to hold on to stuff. Honestly, I'm not yet ready to throw out most of my stuff yet.

It's a two-car garage, and I'd like to create adequate space for at least one car and a mini workstation. What Things Can I Store in my Garage? What Shouldn't I? I'd love to read how other people go about it and how to create order from the chaos.

Clear all your old stuff out of there. Your garage isn’t a storage unit, don’t use it like one. Don’t be afraid to sell or give away old belongings that you’ll never again use.

It’s human nature to hang onto old stuff, but we need to allow ourselves to get go of things we’ll never need as well.
