Are you tired of having your tools propped in a tangled mess in the corner of your garden shed? Here’s an easy-to-make organizer for both your hand and long-handled tools.

Find an old clothes hamper at a garage or rummage sale. Then, using a hole saw, cut several 1¾ in. holes in the lid. Slide your tools, handle first, into the holes. You can paint the hamper to make it look nicer.

Heavy, older hampers are best, as they don’t get top heavy with the tools in place. But if your holder tends to tip, remove the tools and raise the lid. Tuck a few bricks or heavy stones in the bottom of the hamper to help stabilize it. To make the organizer easy to move around, attach four casters to the bottom.
