My first real tool chest

We have been looking for some place to store and manage all of the electronics, cables, and sundry junk I have sitting around. Today, she bought these three tool chests at our local Ace Hardware for less than $85 including tax. I would say it was a pretty good deal. It was on sale for $99, but had a ding, so she talked them down to $75 and was quite pleased with herself. I was pleased with her, too. Now all I have to do is untangle all those cables and figure out how to organize the stuff well enough in the draws so that I will be able to find it all again. Right now, I know where it all is even if it is in a big heap in those big plastic totes. It takes a half an hour to pull out the tote and get things untangled because the thing you want is always at the bottom of the bottom box in the stack.

  1. Brenden and I were putting his Audi back together last weekend. He commented that “You are the most dis-organized, organized person I know. Your shop is a total mess, but you always seem to know where to find what you are looking for.”

    Organizing stuff is definately a weak spot for me. Maybe this will be the year I get organized!
