228 Storage Tips And Easy Projects packs into its 144 pages lots of great storage ideas for your home and workshop. The book describes and illustrates every project in detail, making it quick and easy for handypersons of all skill levels to follow. Even better, most of the featured projects require low-cost supplies that you may already have in your scrap pile.
After going through the entire magazine twice, I’d have to say some of my favorite tips and projects were the ones with PVC pipes. I could never bring myself to dispose of scrap PVC, which is why I have a hefty pile of it — and now that pile has a purpose. Although most of the projects are creative and useful, they throw in a few that are a bit simple, such as the soda bottle tool holder.
A blurb on the inside cover says the tips and projects are based on articles previously run in The Family Handyman. If the monthly magazine is as good as this reference, I just might have to subscribe. You can pick up your copy at newsstands, Amazon, or even some supermarkets for $10. Don’t wait too long, though — the magazine is only on display until April 8.
Bonus: Aside from a one-page e-newsletter mention and a Zircon layout on the back cover, you won’t see any ads!
