Normally I don’t consider myself a very organized person. But, one thing that really frustrates me is when I go looking for my hand trowel or hand shovel in my usual storage spot and finding it NOT THERE.
That really bugs me and the more I have to walk around the property looking for the needed tool, the more frustrated I get.
It doesn’t help that Graham and I both work in the garden and work with the same tools. It also doesn’t help that we usually have 3 different gardens going here on the property.
So really when I need the hand trowel, who knows where the heck it is?
Handy Garden Tool Storage Ideas
Here’s what I am going to do. I saw something like this on Pinterest and thought it was a fantastic idea!
Just get a mailbox, attach it to a post in the garden and boom – automatic hand tool storage!
I could use any old mailbox, but I want a decorated one like this one – I love this country looking mailbox.
So, once it is put into place in the garden, it will just be a matter of both of us getting used to using a tool and then putting it back.
Where. It. Belongs. In. The. Mailbox.
No more searching through the garden to find small hand tools. As long as we put things back where they belong, it should be easy (and less frustrating).
