My handbag is my magic bag that I hold everything in and I refer to this organiser as my husband's little magic box as it is full of handy little items that all homes need at some point or another.
It sits in our garage and is full of different sized nails and screws and little odds and ends that my hubby might need when doing DIY. Even I use it because although he is in charge of any major DIY I am not incapable of small things such as hanging pictures etc. so I am always out in it ratching for what I need. Although I am not in charge of filling it the reason that I call it magic is because it always seems to have exactly what it is that I need.
The box is made of strong plastic and it feels very rigid and durable which is exactly what you want and expect from something like this.
The organiser has different compartments for storing things in and they can be removed or added as needed to make it customisable to yourself. The compartments are nice and deep so that you can store quite a few different things in them so everytime that you get a spare nail or screw you can just drop it into one of the compartments and because they are so deep you don’t have to worry too much about them filling up. The compartments come in three different sizes for different things and we have managed to use all of them.
What I really like about this storage container is that it has a see through lid so that I can quickly look in it and see what is there without having to open it and look through everything if I can see that we don’t have what it is that I am looking for. The lid is great because it clips tightly to the container and when it is in place it keeps everything in the compartments and stops them falling out so that everything stays exactly where it is supposed to stay.
There is a handle so that you can carry the organiser about to different rooms and the lid is so secure that you can carry it perfectly well without the fear that it is going to open and spill everything.
I asked my husband how much he paid for this and he can’t remember exactly but I have looked online and it costs roughly £15 and I think that it is worth this and more because it is very well made and secure.
Over several years of D.I.Y jobs, I have ended up with all manner of ods and sods that include curtain pole rings, assorted nails and screws, raw-plugs etc and it can get a bit messy just chucking them all in the bottom of the tool box. I used to have them all bagged up individually but it got difficult to knbow what I had without pullinllyrew-Fix catalogue, I spotted this and thougt it ideal!
It is basically a mini box with lots of clear compartments for storing all your assorted bits and bobs, odds and sods!
The clear compartments better help you to see what you have got and though they do not store a great amount, help you to keep your stock more organised. And because it is not that big, it doesn't take up a lot of space either which is another added bonus!
This is about £18 from Screw-Fix but when I scoped on Ebay, I DID find it for a bit cheaper with free postage too! So it definitely pays to shop around before you buy!
This is a handy little storage device with lots of different sized lockable compartments and really helps you get yourself a little bit more organised. I am sure that there are other similar products available but from what I have seen, this is one of te beter ones available!
