Here's the only way I know to deal with it...

My monthly ritual... usually takes most of a Saturday to do...

Rumor has it that a local contractor took one look at his hand bender at the bottom of the pile in his truck and opted to buy a new one rather than spend half a day digging the old one out!

Seem to spend more time unloading than doing the job sometimes. Need to look at buying another truck box to haul it all in.

Yup... Wire nuts, Sta-Cons, screws, and other odds and ends go there...

I'm the only one that understands my organization techniques!

I use a lot of tupperware and rubbermaid boxes to store stuff in too...

BTW, notice the shadow differences in the first two pics... That should give an indication of how long this ordeal takes!

Are y'all seeing the pictures?

Half the time I'm getting "X"ed out squares...

If I type the URL of the pics in the address bar, it seems to cache them and fix it for awhile...

I clean my truck once a week, otherwise I'd never find anything, but the bad part is you move to the shop parts that the time you dont expect to need next week, but chances are once you move them to the shop, you always need at least one of those items.
