Tip Of The Week! “Easy PVC Organization For Tools”

Alrighty, Friends! Here is our tip of the week: “Easy PVC Organization for Tools!” If y’all are anything like us, tools can be difficult to keep organized. If they do not have a “specific” place to go, they typically end up getting thrown into our shed. Before we know it, we have one big disorganized mess! And the Spring and Summer months seem to be our biggest challenge when it comes to keep our shed clean. Well, that is all about to change!

We found an amazing way to keep all of our tools organized and in their proper places. Simply cut small portions of PVC pipe and secure them to your wall. Then attach a name tag on the front of each one! Now you have a place for each tool, which helps to keep your shed safe and clean! And it can save you money in the long run, too! With all of your tools in their proper place, you will know exactly where they are at all times! This will eliminate the need to head out to the hardware store to pick up another replacement tool up because you cannot find your original.

Over time, this will also create an issue with proper sealing of the lid and can cause the remainder of the paint inside of the can to dry out and become old. We have provided some GREAT TIPS below to help stop this issue before it even starts! Continue reading
