I would like to be a 'handy' person that reuses/repurposes stuff but sadly I'm an effete nerd and I suck with anything like tools. Best I did lately was put a sheet of cardboard down over my crappy wooden slat shelves that had like 4 inch gaps between the slats.

For some real trash-core DIY, I recommend using the free prio-mail cardboard boxes from the post office.
You don't even need to go in to get them, you can just order them free and they'll ship them free in bulk.
The medium sized ones make excellent shelves that can hold all manner of disc based format (and VHS if you're a dumbass like me).
They can also hold modestly sized books which is of course a plus for comrades.

Cut the closing flaps off the box and you can make supports so they don't totally bend in (I don't know if they'd actually cave in though without them, they might continue to hold but bent as hell).
Add a nice helping of duct tape to hold everything together and you're good, bone-apple-teeth.

One final word on the matter is that these become structurally shitty the more vertical you make them (shocker, huh).
What I've done is lean them back into boxes that are flat on the floor, and their weight holds them without sliding.
That probably only works for carpet, but whatever
They were actually fairly stable at four tall, but five started to present troubles, and six is obviously leaning.
Anyhow there you go, a shelf for the masses.

Any structural engineer chads? I got some cheap IBC totes to harvest rainwater, but these things can weight over 1000 kilos when full so I want to make sure they are on a firm foundation, especially if I decide to stack them two high. Ive been looking at a lot of vids for ideas but they all seem wrong. Lots of them will put their totes on cinder block legs but these containers are designed to be on a flat surface.
Ive made an illustration, so far I've assumed I need to dig down to the clay and put gravel on top but Im worried about the slight slope as well as the northerly winds, if these tanks tip over into the garage its ogre

You can store them on a normal lawn, they won't magically sink. If you really want to you can dig a foundation but it would be a lot easier to just do the cinderblock thing with a few planks on top, or just planks on the ground.

They aren't but in that case your request is impossible, you either stick it to a wall with adhesive or make it hang from the wall with a nail. You should start thinking about hanging it from the ceiling or putting it on a stand. Consider a picture frame as a last case scenario.

I'll go with the adhesive, I'm the same guy with the wall leaking water issue

I talked to the mason and plumber and they said applying tiles will stop the leaking, and force the water to go down from somewhere else

Thanks. ya I probably was overthinking it.
Ended up using cinderblocks because the whole point here is to get water away from the foundation of the garage, so digging a hole and filling it with grave right beside said foundation is probably a bad idea. Havent actually filled them with water yet but it seems stable enough.
Now im putting on the gutters and jesus its a pain because the garage itself is ancient and practically falling over so nothing is level. Im basically trying to get water to flow uphill but I think ive got it now, waiting for a rain this afternoon to see what else I need to move and or patch with caulk.
In retrospect spending the extra money for seamless gutters might been worth it
