Solution: You to go UP!
What does that mean? Use the vertical space to get things organized…
Add shelves to gain square footage. This sample budget project works best for a place that does not have to look pretty, although for only a few more dollars, you can get shelves that are finished and beautiful. I used some shelving seconds from Menards. (The are found near the shelving brackets.) Most of them are scratched and dented, some worse than others, but for this purpose…WHO CARES! This in an unfinished basement space near the washer and dryer.
Each of the shelves is 4 feet long and 12 inches deep. So that is like adding 12 square feet of storage!
Imagine the possibilities!
- Shelves 3 @ $2 each = $6 (estimate, can not find them online)
- Wall Strips 2 @ $X3.73 wach = $7.46
- Brackets 6 @ $1.97 each = $11.82
