Why Having More Than One Tool Bag Will Make You More Efficient

The most important factor in completing home improvement projects is having the right tool for the job. It’s that simple. Home improvement isn’t rocket science, and when you’re unable to complete a task, it’s usually not because you aren’t smart or skilled enough. It’s because you don’t have that tool that does that thing you need in order to finish the job!                 

Stay organized by utilizing more than one tool bag

Unfortunately, you can’t bring your entire workshop with you wherever you go. So my system is this: I have a separate tool bag for different types of work. That way, I can grab one and go, and be confident I’ll have the tools I need for the repair I’m tackling. I recommend you try it out; a sturdy, versatile tool tote like this one, from Husky, is affordable enough that you can buy several. And the rotating handle makes it easy to access all your stuff (even large tools).

Here’s what I have in my tool bags:

Now, obviously this system isn’t going to cover you for every repair or project you take on. But the idea is, if you’re doing something electrical, you should be able to grab your electrical tote and know that you have almost everything you need (maybe you’ll just have to add a few specific things). Not only that, but it makes storage and organization a little bit easier (just dump tools back the right tote and you’re done). 

Why you should keep more than one tool kit, and how it makes you a more efficient homeowner.

What’s your favorite way to keep your tools organized and ready for when you need them? If you have a different or better system, let me know in the comments!

    I LOVE this system! I’ve been using one beat up toolbox that is a jumbled mess at the bottom — so frustrating. I really like the idea of having different bags for different purposes so you can grab and go. Thanks for the tip!
