GARAGESTORAGESOLUTIONSFOREVERYBUDGET A well-organized garage is a common goal for homeowners. But because it’s often considered as space separate from the home – especially if it’s a detached garage, the garage can be overlooked. If finally getting your garage in order is on your to-do list, take a look at these storage solutions for every budget. DIY storage towers. If you already own a bunch of plastic bins, this is the perfect weekend DIY project. If you don’t, plastic bins are super affordable and readily available at most hardware stores. Simply measure the width, height and depth of your bins and use plywood to build a shelving unit so you can stack multiple bins vertically. Anchor the towers to the wall for stability.

Wire shelf and basket system. If you don’t have the time, tools or skills to DIY, head to your local hardware store and check out their selection of wire baskets and shelving. Most stores will cut shelves to your preferred length, and for installation all you need is a drill, screws and a level. Create a full wall of wire shelving. Or start small with a few shelves and add on later. Built-in storage cabinets. More of an investment than the other storage solutions, built-in cabinets give the garage a sleek, polished look. If you’re planning on staying in your home for a long time, or have the money for it, cabinets are

the way to go. And you can still save money by buying pre-made cabinets and installing them yourself rather than having someone build and install custom cabinets for you.
