When I organize any area of my home, I take my handy-dandy organizing toolbox with me so I don't have to run around the house to find specific items. This toolkit saves me time and keeps me focused on the organizing project. I'm going to show you all the things I have inside my create an organizing tool box.
So, I will share with you how to create your organizing toolbox to reduce distractions when organizing an area. Here we go.
Supplies needed to create an organizing tool box
First, I pulled all of these items. This toolbox helps to carry around things like cutters, screwdrivers , and rulers. It not only helps with organizing but also helps with your weekly fix-it list. Here is a list of the items I included and how I use them.
Pliers - To use for helping pull nails out of items and unscrew stubborn bolts.
Flashlight - To use for working/looking in darker spaces.
Hammer - To help hang items.
T-square - To make sure items are square when I assemble them. (used infrequently)
Hole puncher - To help hang signs if needed.
Sorting bin box - Holds all my bits for my drill (not showing) and my screws and anchors for drywall.
Be sure to have plastic gloves
Now, you know organizing can get dirty, really dirty! So, I have many plastic disposable gloves in my organizing toolbox.
Now, you can't forget the labels when it comes to organizing. Here are the other items I use when labeling.
Pens and fine, medium, and large markers (not shown in image) - I use the pens and different size markers labeling when I don't want to use the label maker .
Tape is super handy
And, of course, the packing tape again. I usually write up on a piece of paper what task needs to be done with a particular item and hang the sign to remind me what to do. This tip is excellent for donating larger items or bags of stuff.
I also have different types of twisty tie sets. Anything to tie back cables, and wires, so that the results look organized is what I use. Here are just some of the items.
What my bag looks like when it is organized
And, here is my bag. It has a wireframe, but I placed a mini toolbox in it that has lots of compartments. I have used it for years - it fits perfectly. It looks like a mess, but everything is in its place, and I can find it easily. Tip: Pick a toolbox with lots of compartments to help you stay organized.
I hope this helps you create an organizing tool box that is customized for your home. Please leave a comment if you add anything else to your box. I would love to hear from you.
Organizing Tool Box Checklist
Here is the complete "Create Your Own Organizing Tool Box list. I even included space for you to customize your toolbox. Enjoy, and feel free to share.
One more tip: If you are like me and you organize every season, keep some proper bins in a basement closet to repurpose when working on other organizing projects. Check your unused organizing supplies before buying new ones for another organizing area. It will save you tons of money.
That's it! I hope this helps you get your organizing toolbox in order and reduce distractions when organizing. Please leave a comment below or answer the question: Do you have an organizing toolkit? What do you put in it?
