Storage Suggestions for Cookie Supplies

HELP!!!!! I spent all day today cleaning out my garage. I will be using my garage to store all of my baking supplies. I am trying to gather things I need for cake making, cookies, pies, cupcakes, cake pops, and candy during the holidays. How does everyone set themselves up, and what all do y'all smart ladies suggest I need for storage? Open to all suggestions and, if you have any pictures, I would love to see them. I soon hope to have a huge collection of cookie cutters.

Well, I have some racks for the pans I use more often like cupcakes, budnts, round, squares ....  and an aditional space for seasonal pans.     I have also drawers for each cookie season or theme.  Cutters are storaged in ziplock bags for figures like snowmen, snowflakes, tree and so on.   Now I have big storage boxes were I keep all seasnonal ítems marked.   When the season changes I put them in that space for seasonal ítems, and the lasts season to the storage box.

I like rolling storage containers for my cookie cutters.  My new favorite is "Rainbow 8 drawer rolling chest" by Recollections.  I but it at Michaels half off, which is $65.  I like that it is closed and has wide and deep drawers.  I can take an entire drawer out and take it to where I am working.  I keep my cookie decorating stuff in an old entertainment center that didnt fit the new flat screen.  

Michaela,  Econlady is right about storing things in the garage. In addition to what she pointed out, there's toxins from everything associated with autos, toxins from paint supplies, garden chemicals including fertilizers and composted materials, poisons from insecticides and anything else you can think of.  

Also, you wouldn't be able to pass the Texas Cottage Food Law.  Here's an address that will give you some background about it: www.texascottagefoodlaws.com

 @Julia M. Usher I couldn't find anything in the website rules regarding posting web page addresses. If I've made a goof, please accept my apology. I'll edit it out.

Oh, we always encourage the sharing of links to other sources - we do this all the time in our tutorials and articles, so I am not understanding your concern . . . the only thing you can't do is copy someone else's content directly into this site, as that could be a copyright infringement. But, as I said, linking off to the source is always encouraged.

Well our garage isn't used for a garage. We are closing it in and it will be air conditioned

If you're planning to sell your cookies, you probably should check in with your local Department of Health. Here in Missouri, they have very strict requirements about how food/supplies should be contained and stowed (i.e., off ground, covered with no potential contaminants directly overhead, etc.).
