    Do not mess with anything until you move of course.
    You already hit on the fact the tools are crammed into the drawers and so many you can't organize them.
    That is the way my wrenches ,sockets etc etc are organized.
    I do have a spare tool box i keep runover sockets in.

    I also made a tool box from ammo cans for each vehicle and for the boats that usually stay in the vehicles and boats.
    Got the basic tools I need to do starters and alternators or belts etc on the side of the road. Tape and zip ties and a little bailing wire go a long ways in those boxes.

    If only someone was recently selling a boatload of safety deposit boxes huh?
    Lmao
    Good luck!
    Wish I could help, but I'm extremely limited myself with no end in sight.
    The only thing I have going for me is I tend to collect things that are easy to stack.

    For the record, if everyone had a backyard like yours, we wouldn't need more space. I'm jealous...

    Pallet racks. You can get 8' wide and park a car under them. We have them in the shop and back trucks/trailers under them with storage above.
    Wood deck or expanded metal between the rails, depends on what your storing. In the car wash, we put 100/200 gal water tanks and extra soap.
    Each shelf holds 3000 lbs. 14' tall or cut them off.
    Place on MacArthur about a mile south of I40, east side, sells new and used.

    Edited.

    I already have a storage unit, and I would like to get out of the extra cost honestly. Also, the toolboxes are too heavy to move without hard ground. I’ll probably call a rollback when we move to get them moved safely.
    I wanna get out of my storage unit, and when we move I was thinking of buying a decent shed. Is Lowe’s/Home Depot about the only route for this? Or is there a better option? I was kinda thinking of investing in a 8x16 sized box trailer perhaps to park in the side yard of the next house just to use as storage for the time being, it would make things easy to move in a year or two after we fix up the rent house and get money together to buy a house with a shop.
    Have any cool ideas for bolt bins? My stuff is kinda organized, but still spread out to an extent.
    Cat won’t pay me, and I’m trying to get out of turning wrenches. I’m currently going through the VA’s vocational rehab program to become a home inspector.
    you think those boxes could be put in a rack or a slide to make them accessible?

    There are shed builders all over the metro. We built two lean-to type sheds under the eaves of our house. We have a small plastic shed for the mower.

    Trailers are easy to steal

    If ya stick the tongue into a corner or up against a tree (and chain it to something substantial, like a tree) before ya load it down, it won't be so easily turned around once loaded where someone could hook it up and go.

    Just a thought. :drunk2:
