I used to store things around the garage using specific hardware tailored to each item. As my equipment changed, I found myself having to patch holes only to create new ones to effectively hang new stuff. I am now using pegboard exclusively since it allows me to change things up without having to tear into my drywall. I should have done this years ago. I added four more panels of Craftsman steel pegboard in various locations around the garage. I used two panels to hang my roof-mounted bike racks.
I had been using some wall hooks to keep the bike trailer wheels up and out of the way, but the pegboard is a better solution since we will inevitably be getting rid of the trailer in a few years. That's the thing I love about pegboard, when the day comes, I can find other things to store up in that space above the garage door rails. Here's some before and after shots:
Lastly, I installed one panel close to my water service to store my arsenal of hose nozzles and step ladder. These before and after shots demonstrate home much more flexible a pegboard storage system is.

I'm just a guy who loves his garage, Audi, and detailing so much he blogs about them.
