Carts

I have found that the 4 wheel garden carts work very well as they roll around easily and one can mount a roll away or build a toolbox to hold power tools in on one..Easy rolling is a big plus as rolling the tools out to the job makes things much easier..And one is much more likely to put the tools away neatly if the toolbox is right there as you use the tools..

For workbenches I made some by cutting a piece of ply 24'x30" 2ea and slotting them to accept a stretcher 12 x 36 so they interlock like a big sawhorse and then lay another piece of ply on the top to make a table..these store in a small area..and they will hold a heavy item like a transmission to work on it..

I would drywall and insulate the entire garage so it can be heated in the winter..Makes life a bit easier..Some shelves up high for seldom used items are good too..
