Simple Living and Storage Sheds

The Frugal Home Accessory

storage shed

We've all seen them.  They are those rusted out metal structures in the backyards of neighborhood houses.  They are an eyesore. Who wants one of those?


The good news is that storage sheds have changed.  You can now purchase a storage shed that is very attract, will not rust, and is low maintenance for a reasonable price.


So why are storage sheds frugal?  Things that are very well used, moderately priced, look good and last a long time are frugal.  And things that keep you from moving are extremely frugal.


One of the biggest reasons people move is that they are pressed for space.  This goes for the garage area as well.  We all have so many things to store in our garage it can become very difficult to keep it organized, let alone park a car in it.  Parking your car in the garage will also make it last longer.


A simple storage shed can help with the organization of your garage as well as improve the safety of your home.  It is much better to store chemicals away from your home under lock and key than to store them in your garage.  Even a small can of camping propane is best stored away from your home.


If you buy your storage shed on sale or at a store like Costco, you can purchase it at a reasonable price. 


Whatever is making your garage crowded, can probably be stored in a shed.  Some of these new storage sheds are so cute they are made into play houses for children. 


Storage sheds come in all designs and sizes. Take a look at the new storage sheds.  A frugal, easy maintenance, attractive storage shed may be another tool for the frugal.
