Tomato Cage Ponderings?

The garden does not appear to be damaged by frost. I’ll know for sure over the next couple days. Update as of 2:30pm I do see three tomato plants that were damaged. Hopefully that will be all.

I am now pondering the tomato cage issue. I am thinking of making my own this year. I used to have a bunch of them but they have disapeared for some reason.
I called a local hardware store and they said a 150′ roll of concrete reinforcement mesh is 99.99. Or they have 8 x 4 sheets for 7.95. I wish we could use some of our old goat fencing but not sure of the strength.

And if I did make them where would I store them all? The kind you make is not tapered so does not fit inside one another. Sigh. Anyone have Any better ideas?
