Ready for one of those, “Why didn’t I think of that?” moments? You can install simple tracks made out of lumber to store sliding plastic bins on your ceiling. These are perfect for housing any awkwardly-shaped items, holiday decor or seasonal clothing that you don’t access often. Add labels to the bottom to make it super easy to keep track of what’s in each bin. If you don’t have a label maker, paper tape or painters tape and a marker will get the job done.
