An apron stocked with helpful household tools.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!

Household Tool Box Tips

My Tool Box

Do you have your own tool box for in the house. Whenever I needed a tool, I had to go out to the garage and get one of my husband's. If I forgot to put it back, I heard about it. So, I went and bought myself an inexpensive tool box. Every so often, I would buy some basic tools to put in it. I keep the tool box in the house in the pantry. Now, hubby knows better then to touch "MY" tools.

Mark "Your" Tools

I've heard that marking "your" tools somehow with something pink will help keep them separate from your husband's tools!

Fishing Tackle Box

A small fishing tackle box does an excellent job of serving as a small in-house toolbox. I've had one for many years and love it. My husband knows that any tools in that box are strictly hands-off for him, unless I loan them to him.

Small Handy Tool Box

Put together a small tool box for making minor repairs around the house. Fill it with the essentials: hammer, screw drivers, a chisel, pliers, scissors, a small level, a tape measure and anything else you find yourself needing frequently. Keep it in a safe convenient place and make sure all the tools and the tool box is put away when it's done being used.

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.
