We’ve all had those moments, fishing through an overcrowded toolbox looking for that one right tool for the job, or endlessly rummaging through drawers because the one drill bit we need isn’t in the bin with all the others. All the organizational hacks work at first before dissolving into a tool filled mess that can’t be reclaimed.
Whether the tool storage is in the garage or in a shed, organization is a powerful thing, and every handyman needs it.
Making sense of a shed
The first steps of organizing a shed are separating the tools. Everyday items such as hammers, nails, and hoses go in one pile, then weekly items such as the mower, potting soil, and other garden supplies. Finally, seasonal items go in a separate pile.
Then organize these piles by size. Hammers and screwdrivers can more than likely stay together on an easily assessable shelf, while nails and screws can sit in their own bucket that hangs on its own hook. Bigger shovels and trowels can hang up on the walls in hangars, and so on.
Large shelves can also be organized in their own right, with hand tools being on their own shelf and further organized by color, the type of job that they are used for, and so on. However the organization is specialized doesn’t matter, but the end goal is to look at the organization and be able to find every tool blindfolded.
Best ways to bring it together
By using the organizational method that will be the best, tool storage cabinets and racks will become easy ways to find and grab the tools that are needed to complete every task quickly, efficiently, and safety while saving time and frustration across the board.
So get organizing and then see how easy the projects get completed once the plan is in place!
