Default How packed is your garage?

My house is a traditional late 60's ranch with what I assume was a standard size 2 car attached garage. I have one car that has a permanent spot on one side that I hug the wall. There's no way she will ever live outside. I also keep 3 bikes, 2 tool boxes, air compressor, beer mini fridge, and an upright freezer in there. When there are pending storms, I have to basically play a game of Tetris with the motorcycles, kids bikes, etc. to get the family car in the garage.

I'm sure I'm not alone here. Adding on to the home, building a separate building, etc. are not an option at the moment. I'm curious if anyone else on here got creative with their limited space to pack everything in with room to move?

My backyard shop is 20x22. It’s pretty packed.
There’s enough room on the side I’m standing on to fit a bike on a rolling lift and work on it. Right where that little HF welding table is in the lower right .
I have gone vertical too.

I had to do some arranging when I got the motorcycle lift, but I made everything fit.

That's tidy and well laid out, puts mine to shame.
