My workshop is VERY organized! It if wasn't I would be wasting (= money) looking for things. Over the years, I have developed several methods that work well for me. I have drawers for various items, such as a drawer for finishing supplies: sanding belts, various disk sizes in several grits, tack cloths and foam contours. Another drawer for glues and glue spreaders. Shelves of hand planes. Several roll-around tool boxes and dozens of 14.5" wide storage boxes that I use for fasteners; such as square drive, torx, Phillips & Straight; all kinds of lengths and finishes. My label-maker is my best friend on lots of this stuff - as it allows me to keep things neat.
I also have numerous tools hanging on the walls. Most are hanging in such a manner that even when sprayed with the air compressor - things only rattle and do not fall (getting dust off of walls). My bigger tools are on wheels - which makes cleaning under and around them very convenient.
YEP! A place for everything and (when not in use) everything in its place. My guys have all been with me for long times and they know that hunting for lost tools is something that is very frustrating, and therefore is to be avoided!
