Organize All of the Tools in Your Home
                               by David Heiby
Like socks that vanish in the dryer, tools seem to relocate mysteriously when you do projects over the years. We can't explain it.  


If you're a home handyman or handywoman (or even a professional contractor), you likely have toolboxes all over the house, each with odd assortments of tools.  All the big screwdrivers might be in the basement toolbox and the hammers in the toolbox in the garage.  




But here's what we suggest to solve the problem. Gather all of the toolboxes in your home, spread newspaper on the floor and empty the toolboxes onto the paper.  Now, put just the right combination of tools into each box - screwdrivers, a hammer, socket wrenches, Auto-Grip locking pliers (of course), regular pliers, flashlight and a little bag of nails and screws.  

You should not have to do this again for at least 10 years. By the way, if you really are a beginner and don't have a toolbox, Auto-Grip sells a very nice kit for $60.
