Jars For Loose Items - Not only does it look great, but jars attached to the bottom end of shelving is the perfect way to store small or loose items. Never lose a nail or screw again! Simply pick a jar size you like, baby food jars work great here, and screw the lid to the bottom end of a shelf or cabinet. Unscrew the jar to add items. It's as simple as that. You can utilize these anywhere loose items are present. Just make sure each jar has a specific purpose and not mixed in with other items.
Buying an outdoor storage building with a loft greatly increases storage capability, allowing you to store rarely used supplies overhead. For the exterior, build your own lean-to and attach it to the outdoor storage building to form a sheltered area for firewood.
