Easy DIY Garage Storage

These days, we all could use a little extra storage in our garages. Several years ago as a first time home buyer with limited tools and handyman know how, I needed to find a inexpensive way to organize my garage. I came across this great article from The Family Handyman and implemented many of these ideas in my own garage. If I can do it, anyone can do it!!  7 years later, it’s still working very well to help keep everything organized. Check it out for yourself!

In addition to the wall storage, I also came across this system for building simple shelves from a single sheet of plywood.  They are easily customized and work well for all sorts of equipment and food storage. I even combined two of their ideas to make a custom hockey locker for all my gear, finishing it off by screwing some broken sticks to the front to give it some true hockey character. These shelves are easy to build with some basic knowledge and are relatively inexpensive. Perfect for new home owners!  Enjoy!
