Tip: Hidden storage in the garage

We have a friend who uses every spare inch in his garage for storing stuff. He even put shelves in the cavity of wall studs for small items and he hung wire shelving from the ceiling rafters to store seldom-used power tools and Christmas decorations. It's a two-person job to retrieve the stuff but he prefers using those vacant spaces instead of hanging shelves on the walls that take up floor space.
