How do you keep your barn organized?

I was just wondering how you all keep your barns clean and organized, because it seems mine can't stay clean/organized for more than a hour!

I use lots of hooks around her stall so I can put her halyard, leads and other important stuff right where it can easily found and not on the floor or on a tackbox. I also use plastic containers with drawers for my medical supples, brushes, treats, clean towels, and my misc summer stuff I never use during the winter. I have a saddle rack on the wall we all have our saddles on and a rack for our blankets and saddle pads.

yeah I am trying to use hooks, but Where I keep my tack I can't nail nails in... I tried the camand hook things but I think it is to cold right now for them to stick... Do you know if they would even hold? Or have anyother ideas of what could replace or work for hooks?

I am known as the anti-hoarder. I can't keep anything if I don't already use it or if it is not useful in case of emergencies.

My barn is open and in an "L" shape, with the feed and tack room on the shorter leg of the "L". In my tack room I have one wall with racks for saddles and bridles, one wall with metal shelving where I keep medical and grooming supplies and the other wall has hooks for rakes, shovels, etc.

I allow myself one sterlite bin to hold any extra tack (headstalls, bits, reins..). My metal shelving holds the bulk of my "stuff" and if I ever find myself trying to make room for some new purchase, I know it's time to clean out, get rid of old and reorganize. I'm pretty serious about keeping it clean and clutter free. All I "need" for the horses can fit on those shelves haha.

My family used to treat my barn like a graveyard for useless junk. They hate throwing things away so when they don't want to look at it anymore suddenly I find it in my tackroom. I usually throw it straight in the dumpster but funny enough no one has ever noticed.

I am not a hoarder but I keep things (thats probably half my probelm) that I "might need" in the future haha.... I am like "I am not buying a new one If my other one brakes, needs to be replaced, or gets lost. Haha I have alot of crap but ughh I don't know how to keep it all organized!

Lol I know what you mean, i'm kind of "extreme" and it's going to bite me in the butt one day.

What kind of stuff have you accumulated? Organizing is one of my favorite things to do haha. Do you have a tack room? Basically im just wondering if you need some kind of organization trunk to hold things.
