Put a mothball in your tool box to help prevent rust.
- Organize your tools in your toolbox so that the tools you use the most are on top.
- Keep a small flashlight in your toolbox in case there is a power outage. Keep the batteries separate so it doesn't turn on when it shifts around.
- Put a piece of cardboard in the bottom of your toolbox to soak up oil and moisture.
- Keep a container in your toolbox for loose nails and screws to prevent them from getting buried under your tools.
- Add a little baking soda to screws or nails that are stored in coffee cans to prevent them from rusting.
- Keep a few pieces of chalk in your toolbox. They might come in handy and they will help absorb moisture.
