No matter how big our garages or basements are, we always seem to run out of storage space. It’s just inevitable. Making the most of every inch will give you storage options for everything you need. If you have items that need to be stored, we’ve got a solution for you that’s out of the way and somewhat hidden.

Where your home or garage joists hit the wall, there’s a hidden storage opportunity. Grab a piece of wire shelving and attach it to the bottom of the joists with plastic clips. Once the shelving is secure, you have created several storage nooks that are the perfect size for plastic containers. Store items here that you won’t need every day and want to tuck away. Tubes of caulk, extra nails and screws, backup tools and more fit perfectly in the spaces between the joists. Don’t let wasted space slip through your fingers.
