Need more storage space in your garage? You can construct ceiling flanges from wood that will hold any heavy-duty plastic storage bin and expand your options.

The Family Handyman site says this project can be done over a weekend with around $75 worth of wood and other materials. You’ll cut the wood, assemble the flanges, and mount them to your ceiling joists. Once assembled, slide your storage bins in the flange.

I don’t recommend storing heavy materials this way, but for Christmas ornaments, camping gear and other seldom-used items this method chould work well.
