Pallets make great storage for scrap wood

What is so crazy about this idea is the solution has been in front of me for MONTHS!  I snagged a few pallets last summer with visions of creative genius. I’m still waiting.  I had a ton of scrap wood and lumber  that were precariously placed against the garage walls and in storage tubs.  Not the brightest idea.  Coincidentally, I also had to replace two tires because 2 nails and a screw in each.  I am convinced the nails came from the scraps of wood that were within 2 feet of my tires.  That was an expensive lesson.  I had to get the wood off the floor.
