Best kind of storage for things like big rubbermaid containers?

jaackaOctober 19, 2006

We need to do some reorgizing now that winter is coming and we want to park both the cars in the garage again... we have tons of big rubbermaid boxes and it's such a pain to take them all down to get to the bottom one, etc... what kind of storage system is best for stacking them? Thanks

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

My husband made cheap plywood shelves with very heavy brackets. Each shelf is just wide enough to hold the Rubbermaid tub but be sure to make shelves far enough apart so you have enough room to open the lid a little bit while it's still on the shelf to peak inside to see what is in it. Otherwise, you have to take the tub off of the shelf to see inside. We like to keep stuff in the tubs so it stays clean--we try to keep the tubs labeled correctly and the label side out so we can read it!
