How to Fix lag in GMod?

Hey there. I seem to be getting random lag in Garrys Mod every so often, at least once a day. I want to know how to fix this, as I know it is not my internet. Nothing is lagging but my Steam/ Gmod.

How many addons and maps have you added to the game? Is it stuttering while you move and lagging when you try to spawn an object?

I deleted all the custom addons and it didn't stutter anymore.

How good or bad is your computer?
This might easily just be your computer filled up or something.

Give us your pc specs, addons, etc.

Anyways, I set my DX level to 8.1, lowered the graphics, and got a faster internet connection. Now it runs on my average laptop with no problem. There are all sorts of guides across the web detailing how to speed up Gmod.

Just FYI,
Try finding Source Sauce, Go to Video (Advanced) Then change directx to what ever.
