When I went to look for scraps for the battery storage project, I didn’t have to look far.
And, I didn’t spend much on storage for those scraps. Whenever one of our refrigerators dies, I always save the old drawers and shelves. I keep the standards and runners, too, although sometimes it works out to use those and sometimes it doesn’t. Below, I’ve pictured some places in the garage I’ve installed this free storage and some of the things I’ve squirreled away.
