TOM: What’s your best tool worth? Well not much if you can’t find it. Hi, I’m Tom Kraeutler.
LESLIE: And I’m Leslie Segrete with today’s Money Pit Home Improvement Minute.
TOM: If your toolbox, workshop or shed is a mess, consider interlocking toolboxes to help restore order. These are modular stackable containers to let you not only organize and separate tools, but easily transport them as needed.
LESLIE: Pocket organizers that wrap around five-gallon buckets are also great for small tool transport. Simply hang the organizer from a bucket that you’re already bringing to a work site and fill its pockets with all the odds and ends you’re going to need.
TOM: Rolling tool carts work well for portability, especially ones with beefy wheels for tougher terrain. Look for deep cabinets and drawers and built-in work surfaces to get you the most bang for your buck.
LESLIE: And if none of these catch-all toolboxes make life easier, consider keeping separate toolboxes for each job. One for carpentry, one for electrical work and so on. I’m Leslie Segrete.
