How to store LOTS of garden hose?

Toddville, IA(Zone 5a)

I'm going to try posting this here, since most of us have a bit more land than a typical urban yard... When one has 1000-2000 feet of garden hose, in the usual 50-100 ft. segments, how does one store it so that it does not become an octopus that takes over an entire 60 x 128 pole barn? All my reels and carts have collapsed over time... I can't get the darned stuff to coil to save my life -- yet when it comes to planting a new bed along the lane, or watering new trees up in the orchard, the length is indispensable. If anyone has solutions for this a) bless you, b) patent it and c) tell me now, before I commit hose-icide! ;-)
