The Organized Life, 127 Wrenches

“What’s that stuff for?” HH said


plastic bins


“I thought these might be handy to organize your tools,”  I said




“Organize my tools?”  he asked, “I know exactly where everything is…”




“Um, well, every time I need a screwdriver or the pliers, I have to take everything out, dig around, then pile everything back in…”





“You’re right, there is a lot of S T U F F,” he agreed





“Do you need 127 wrenches?” I asked



tool organization


Several trash bags later…

Sigh, organizational beauty…




Now, I can actually grab a screwdriver in seconds…





Without digging through 127 wrenches…

Note: Organization products can be pricey, especially at specialty stores.  I bought these plastic bins and containers in the housewares section of Olde Time Pottery.  They are low priced and the tall food bins really work well for slim cabinet spaces.

Okay, 1 cabinet down, 10 closets, and 17 cabinets to go!

How are your New Year’s resolutions coming along?

    Good job! Hard to get started on these projects, but once you do – quite addictive! Do you have five below stores? they sell great sets of containers for five bucks! 🙂

    Awesome! I think I will forward this post to hubs, maybe he will take the hint. He has a lot of stuff!
    Thanks for the tip on where to buy, yes, those storage containers can get pricy.

    This is great! A post for your masculine followers. I actually have most of my stuff on the counter of my garage cabinet. I had intended to sort it and put it away…
