Big closet full of plugs hanging by type and all of my other crap organized in a half bi-polar half OCD way.

Jon006 that there doesnt look OCD at all, it looks sweet! I just finished measuring a spot in the garage to replicate it! Ok all my stuff is lumped together in a corner of the garage. My fly gear is on a shelf next to the waders. All of my gear is stored in Plano boxes that I alternate into a hydration backpack for each outing. I keep an ultralight setup in each vehicle along with a Plano box of "basics" in case the urge strikes while I'm passing a pond/brook/resevoir/puddle that might hold fish. When I'm fishing the ditch I alternate between a green pickle bucket and a white bucket with one of those bucket buddy systems like this:

and a couple of these as well:

Nope totally OCD, however as long as I am not lazy and rinse my plugs and hang them there the hooks don't rust!!!! I'll have to keep an eye out for the green pickle bucket!!! That's priceless!

I am organizing a bit better by selling off the casting rods, reels, and surf bags. As for some reels & rods that I have found memories, they will kept on the side. My first jetty rod that I built on a honey lami stick holds sentimental value. The rest of the reels and rods that I don't need will be sold off or given to local kids. For plugs I've given up on the large Abu tackle bags to go with plano boxes that slide into a locking vertical stacking holder. All the weights I have are now in coffee cans marked by ounces and sorted by type. All the 5 oz, sliding egg sinkers, and 12 oz sinker are going to my buddy for a melt down. So by the end I will have only bank and hatteras sinkers left. Still not sure what to do with all the waders, but have left them on the ground. I am not buying anymore mono line and using what I have up so there are only a few 1/4 lb spools. All the fishing magazines, junky plugs, rigs have been tossed out. It is looking a lot better these days in the sun porch.

It's funny that I had missed this thread as I was just thicking about this the other day. I was looking over the house, garage, room under garage and boat house which all of it is a mess. I have my tackle piled all over the place and sometimes don't know where to put it. I used to just leave some of it in the boat house as it was easy and convienent but after having a several rods/reels and 2 huge tackle boxes stolen I don't leave there anymore. One of my projects is to clean out and organize the garage to use as a work shop and storage. Now it's storage but in a giant heap. I keep most stuff in bags, boxes and some small duffel/shoulder bags. As I have been trying to replace the stolen stuff I have also acquired much stuff I didn't have. I do like to hang some others in bins though(stuff not in tackle bag/box)
