Shelves

I just added some shelves to mine and just cut some thin plywood, covered it in contact paper, drilled holes in the corners and hung it with shower hooks. I figure as it get's chewed, I'll either recover it, or replace it.

You can get small scrap pieces of wood for pretty cheap at the Home Improvement stores.

This too is an awesome idea. Much better than having to cut plywood. I'm stealing... err... borrowing this idea. THANKS!

Those thick plastic baskets you can get I used them on my new cage and I used zip ties to hold them up

I would be careful with the plywood. Its treated with a lot of chemicals.
