With a finish carpenter husband, you’d think we’d always have the right tools and supplies in the house.
Not so — when I’m looking for a screw or pliers or an allen wrench, I can’t find what I need half the time.
This is what my tool box looked like.
I love an organized house and have been wanting to organize my tool box so I can at least find the supplies that I do have.
So when I saw these see-through, divided containers at Target for only $1 each, I took that as a sign and bought three.
I put all of the tools back into the plastic bin and then divided up the small hardware items like washers and screws in those little boxes.
- I now know which supplies we do have
- I know where they are
- I can easily find them in these inexpensive, see-through storage boxes
