Swapping the rooms in my apartment has been a huge undertaking. I get up each day and put on my denim apron with all the stuff in it I need to do what needs to be done without walking all over the place. I thought this might help you if you are moving, have a large project you or someone you know is doing, etc.
I keep the following in the apron: Measuring tape, notepad and pen, marker, screwdriver, scissors and a little box of tacks and push pins. This keeps everything I might need with me and I save a lot of steps!

I decided to have my own toolbox so I would know where "my" screwdrivers, hammer, etc. were. I am always looking for items to be used in a different way. I absolutely love wooden boxes.
Over the years, the house tools disappeared. So I said, "No more!" For the next several weekends, my teenage son accompanied "Mom" to the swap meet and shared his knowledge of good tools, worn tools, useful vs useless tools and fortunately, inexpensive used tools vs new.
I put together my own little repair and tool box so that when I need to fix something quickly, I don't need to go to the shed and search for the tool I need.
