Organizing Hack: Turn A Craft Organizer Into The BEST Garage Organizer Ever!

We worked hard to organize our garage. With all the renovations we’ve been doing lately, it had gotten really messy in there. I’ve known for a long time that I wanted to have my own personal toolbox. My husband has a tonne of tools and I hate digging among his things to try to find a hammer and a nail to hang a picture. I needed a ready storage solution! This is what I’m dealing with here, folks:

In all honesty, we haven’t built her storage wall / tool bank yet, so that’s a big reason her stuff is a mess. BUT a girl has to do what a girl has to do. It was driving me crazy … I had to organize my garage!

Since we are organizing our garage, I had it in my head when I was at the Hobby Lobby a few days ago. I saw this organizer from Creative Options in the craft storage area:

This organizer is perfect for more than just organizing craft supplies!

and I knew right away that it was exactly what I needed. These awesome organizers were made for craft supplies, but hack organization: I turned it into the best toolbox and hardware organizer ever!

BONUS: It’s also pink so my husband won’t be tempted to requisition it!

Let’s take a look at my new organizer, shall we?

The top basket is oversized and perfect for holding my tools.

Then there are three separate pull-out organization boxes.

Use craft storage boxes to organize nails and screws

Each box has adjustable dividers so you can customize the size of the compartments to fit just about anything you’d like to put inside.

I filled one with picture hanging supplies, cabinet hardware, and pieces of curtain brackets.

Use a crafted plastic box to order the hardware.

The smallest of the three boxes was the perfect place to organize all my nails and screws. I can’t tell you how good it is to see exactly what I have!
