Toolboxes...not just for men anymore!

Toolboxes, not just for men anymore. About 3 years ago I was constantly running around trying to find a screw driver or batteries or something of the like, then it dawned on me. I need my own toolbox. So my husband and I went to Wal-Mart and purchased an inexpensive toolbox and I had my list of things that I wanted to go in it. So here is a peek inside. I'll give you a list of things I have in mine in case you would like to put together one for your self. Trust me it is such a time saver and I gotta admit you feel pretty handy having one lol.
Here is a picture of just the outside. It has a handy quick compartment right on top that I usually put some batteries in for easy access.

Now here is a look inside. This is the top tray that sits inside the box.
This is underneath the tray.
Here is some of the stuff I have in there. Remember I'll give a list at the end of most everything I have in there so you can kind of get an idea for your own.
This is just a picture of both compartments.
Now this gadget is cool. It's like a small screwdriver and has different replacement heads on it for when you need to get into those tight places. Plus it has a tape measure built into the end of it. Cool huh?

Ok now here is a list of some of the things I have in my tool box.
1. screwdrivers- phillips and flathead
2. tape measure
3. hammer
4. wall hooks- the screw in kind and the kind that has the tape back on them that you can easily remove. Don't forget to have some replacement sticky things for those.
5. A box cutter. (for opening those stubborn packages that are wrapped a hundred times in tape.)
6. batteries
7.spare Christmas lights
8. a doorstop (hey you never know lol)
9. earplugs (ha ha that one is self explanatory)
10. a spare nightlight
Well that's most of what I have in there. I hope this has inspired you and if you do decide to tackle this make sure you have a list ready of the things you would most need. Just sit down and think of all the times you wish you had something handy and or couldn't find something and write it down and then get those things and put them in your toolbox. Be sure to share with me your toolbox if you have one or when you get one together.
Oh and I can't tell you how many times my husband has thanked me for putting this together because he uses it just as much as I do lol. All his stuff is in his shop. Hmmm a shop.......
