Plastic cups that you can pick up for $1 for 3 are a great way to organize tools and other items. You just have to mount them on the wall or better yet, on a pegboard. Just drill 2 holes in each cup and secure to the pegboard using zip ties. You can create an entire board filled with cup storage to keep all of those smaller items organized
Also on these boards
although this is for a craft closet, i like the idea of pegboard inside a closet to keep "junk drawer" stuff I can never find--screwdriver, scissors, tape, tape measure, etc
Rather than prop shovels and rakes in the corner of your garage or shed, install pegboard and hang them up with hooks made for the job.
