This itty bitty, teeny tiny storage shed from Target is technically an outdoor cabinet, but it’s a true bang for your buck. And that faux rattan pattern? So trendy. If you need more storage, buy two for $140 and style them side-by-side for a chic, outdoor buffet.

If you’re on a no-frills budget, ShelterLogic has a fabric shed for $99. It may not be the sturdiest, but it definitely gets the job done. Plus, the 300D polyester protects against UVA and UVB sun rays that can fade your stuff.

We love that this shed looks like a cabinet. With removable shelving, it’s perfect for storing tools with long handles such as shovels and rakes. And the vertical, slender design is perfect for a porch or patio.

The problem with a lot of smaller, horizontal sheds is that they open from the top like a toy box. And that makes it difficult to reach everything — especially smaller tools and gardening supplies. But this Rubbermaid shed makes it super easy to find something because both the top and the front doors swing wide open.

Plastic storage bins have come a long way. This mini shed features a faux wood texture and can store anything from garbage cans to bicycles. And another plus? The cool gray exterior can blend in with patio furniture or siding on the house.

Metal storage sheds tend to mean permanent. They can be difficult to disassemble, move and unload. But this portable tool shed from StorageHouse is lightweight and great for changing needs throughout the year. Keep it under your deck during the winter for firewood storage or move it around the yard in the spring and summer for gardening needs.

Galvanized steel sheds tend to look a little too industrial and out of place for the yard. But, this steel shed has a modern flair thanks to the pitched roof and dark coffee trim.

While we came across lots of storage bins and cabinets, it’s hard to find a true shed under $250. Needless to say, we were excited when we spotted this one at Home Depot. It’s 6 feet by 5 feet so it’s not huge, but it’s perfect for storing larger yard tools. Plus, it comes with free shipping!

Great for pool gear and garden tools alike, this compact mini shed is just as practical as it is cute. It features honey-brown shiplap, lockable door and a weatherproof roof which are all bonuses in our book.
