If your kids love being active, more often than not you’ll find their sports equipment all over your garage floor. Instead of storing them in huge bins (which eats up too much valuable space) you can opt for wall storage using a bungee cord.

  • You’ll need: nails, spare wood, and bungee cords.
  • Install 3 pieces of wood (creating a “U” shape) from the top to bottom areas of the wall. Customize it to your desired storage height.
  • Create a barrier to keep the sporting goods in place by hooking 4-5 bungee cords from the wooden ledges.

The bungee cord’s flexibility will provide easy access to your sporting goods.
