Divide Your Tools Into Project-Specific Toolkits

If your toolkit is organised by shoving everything you own into a box, it might be time to organise the mess. DIY blog Apartment Therapy outlines a trick pulled from the new issue of Martha Stewart Living for dividing your tools by project to give you better access to what you need.The idea is pretty simple. Instead of having one large toolbox with every tool you own, create smaller boxes related to recurring projects. For instance, you can create a small picture-hanging kit, a car repair kit or a hobby kit. If you don't want to make a bunch of different boxes you can also organise the tools in the toolbox you have by project instead of by size or type. The benefit here is that when you go to start a new project you can grab one small toolkit without digging through a huge box and making a mess in the process.
