Upcycling empty glass jars to store nuts, bolts, wall plugs, etc. in your shed this way has so many benefits.
This gives you the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. (We do not advocate killing any birds with or without a stone) You get to make eco-friendly use of jars that would otherwise be recycled and also make use of the underside of the shelves in your shed!
Who among us doesn’t want more storage space in our sheds?
Simply wash your jar, drill two holes through the lid and into the bottom of the shelf. Use short screws to attach the lid and hey presto you have a new storage container.
The holes in the lid should be spaced apart and not in the center so that the lid doesn’t spin when you try and twist the jar off to get to the contents.
Leave enough room between jars to allow you to see the jars several rows behind. I even alternated the alignment of my rows to improve visibility.
Put often used items in the first row and less used in the rear rows.
