How I Organized My Tool Cabinet

Good morning! I hope you all had a fun and family filled Easter! It was such a beautiful day here. Perfect for hunting eggs! I was able to accomplish a few projects while I was off for spring break.

This locker cabinet was one of my projects. What a mess! I was constantly having to dig through all this to find the one tool or item I needed. There are small tools that I use in the house, a few painting supplies, batteries, and other miscellaneous items. I finally decided it was time to do something about it.

I found this divided box and knew it would work perfectly for all the small pieces I had in the locker. I started out putting the smaller items in the small squares. Items such as nails, screws, hooks and eyes fit perfectly in these compartments.

Once I finished with the smaller pieces, I had several larger items. I was able to take some of the dividers out to make larger spaces. I placed razor blades, zip ties and larger hooks in these compartments.

I also had a small clear plastic box that I filled with the larger tools like the hammer, screwdrivers, levels, wire cutters and sandpaper.

I also had a divided box for batteries. I have had this organizer for awhile and I don’t know why I didn’t think of it for the other items.

What a difference! It’s amazing how two little organizers could make this much of a difference! It’s so much easier to find what I need now. I have the batteries on the top shelf and hung up a few extra packs on the hook. I also have a few painting supplies and the staple gun in here.

I placed the divided box and the tool box on the bottom shelf.

Such a simple solution to a big messy problem! I’m so glad to have this one project done.
