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

We've been hard at work organizing our garage. With all of the remodeling we've done lately, it had gotten really messy in there. I've known for a while that I wanted to have my very own tool box. My husband has a ton of tools and I hate digging through his stuff to try to find a hammer and a nail to hang a picture. I needed a storage solution pronto! This is what I'm dealing with here, people:

In all fairness, we haven't built his storage wall/tool bench yet, so that's a big reason his stuff is a mess. BUT a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. It was driving me batty... I had to get my garage organized! 

Since we have been organizing our garage, I had it on the brain when I was at 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 immediately that it was exactly what I needed. These awesome organizers were made for craft supplies, but organizing hack: I turned it into the best tool box and hardware organizer ever!

BONUS: it's even pink so my husband won't be tempted to commandeer it!

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

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

Then there are three separate pull-out organizing boxes.

Each box has adjustable dividers so I can customize the size of the compartments to fit pretty much anything I'd want to put in there.

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

Use a plastic craft storage box to sort hardware.

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

Use a divided craft tray to sort screws and nails in the garage.

I think the best part about this organizer is that when I want to work on something, I can grab the whole box and take it to the part of the house I'm working in OR I can just grab one of the slide-out boxes and take that instead. It's so versatile!

  1. Those can do double time as bead and button organizers too.

    1. Definitely! That's actually what they were originally designed for.
