Use what you have
If you get creative, you may already have some great objects to use for shed organization. For instance, pallets are great organization tools if used properly. They can be used to store longer items like rakes or even left-over lumber pieces.
Old containers and jars can be used to organize items like screws, nails, or other hardware. If you have old totes lying around, these can be used as miscellaneous storage containers.
Don’t forget your ceiling
If you have a 10×12 shed with a little extra headroom, it’s a perfect space to use for extra storage. A shed with gambrel-style trusses, like our Lofted Barn Max, has plenty of space for a loft. Here you’ll have a perfect place to store your boxes and totes without them getting in the way.
Even if your shed doesn’t have a lot of overhead clearance, you can still add your own DIY racks to store things like pipes, lumber, or other long items.
