Any suggestions for a garage organizer?

Our poor garage. It's capable of being so much but it's filled with unorganized childhood things, tools, toys and other crap, it currently doesn't stand a chance.

With two littles, we have no time to tackle this (heck, we didn't without kids...), but I'd love any advice on someone who can organize our garage, make recommendations on tool storage/cabinets/brackets (better still if they can actually install) and generally help us along in making our garage a more usable space for kids to do art/play and my husband to work out. I need someone who can do more than recommend putting stuff in clear bins.

I want someone with a vision on how to maximize space, including where to place large items like ladders, bags of lawn chair cushions, occasional tables, etc.

Does this person exist outside of my fantasies?
