What's the best way to store a kayak in my garage? I don't have a lot of room, so I don't have the space for sawhorses, and if hooks on the wall, it has to be higher than my car... a hoisting system could work but I need one I can operate alone and all of them seem to be pretty expensive - was trying to find something under $50?

No need for anything fancy. Screw two large hooks into the ceiling. Hang a buckled strap from each one (cam buckle, not ratchet). Wrap the strap around the kayak and hoist it up.
And if carry it a car|

I feel for you. I have a one car garage and have never had a car parked in it. My solution was to go to a home improvement store and use galvanized pipes. I bought 1 1/4 inch pipe and two floor flanges. I attached the flanges to studs in the wall and then screwed a 12 inch pipe onto the flange. I had some old J racks I could not use on my new car. I then attached the J racks to the pipe. I use a one step step stoll to left it up onto to the rack assembly. I have been using this set up for years and never had any problems.

Place large 2 "I" hooks on the wall studs, one for bow and one for stern. use web straps with "S" hooks on each end. Hook on end of strap to wall I hook and let it hang down. Lift boat up to wall. Reach down get other end of strap and fasten it to the I hook. do the same with other end. (bow and stern) It will hang on the wall for years. No need for pulles or extra lifting lines.
