Affordable Storage Solutions: Your Budget-Friendly Storage Unit Guide

A couple of weeks ago I decided it was time to organize our entryway by adding a Budget-Friendly Storage Unit. Our new place has an elevator exit on each floor, so when someone comes up to our floor they step into the entryway.

For the past 3 months, we have just dropped stuff there; things like our water gallons, things I need to sell and boxes. We didn’t have room in the house so that’s where the junk went. Not really pretty, and I am sure my visitors thought so too. It really was time to get this room organized and sorted out.

We sorted out the items we wanted to keep and to throw away, then I placed them into boxes and the entire   display came together nicely.

And yes, this Budget-friendly Storage Unit is a GREAT beginner project. If you just have some basic tools and a Kreg Jig, this project will be a done in no time!

You can find the plans for this Budget-friendly Storage Unit on Build Something, which is Kreg’s new DIY project plan site. Please head over to find the plans, including a cut list & tools I used.

The best part about this build is that it only is about $50 in wood supplies. We had everything else, like; wood glue & tools.

To make the storage look organized I added white storage boxes and some wire baskets.

You have no idea how grateful I am to be able to build a piece of furniture from scratch, it’s rewarding fun and saves us a bunch of money. Ever since we moved out in town, we have struggled with storage. I had to come up with a plan!

Most our things fit in the closets, but the bedroom is still a mess and I am trying to find space for clothes, towels, sheets, and bedding in general. A new dresser had to be made, my Modern Farmhouse Style Dresser was created bigger and is easy to build. To top it off, the dresser cost me about $150 incl. hardware.
