Bucket Tool Kits
Convert metal and plastic buckets into carryalls for frequently used tools. Use an electric drill with an 1/8-inch bit to make an even number of holes around the bucket's perimeter, about 2 inches apart and 2 inches below the lip. Thread an 1/8-inch-thick plastic cable tie through each pair of holes, and secure outside the pail; inside, use smaller cable ties to fix each loop to the next for stability. Slip one tool in each loop.
