I have done electrical work around the house my whole life, including doing all the wiring for a home addition.

It is only in the last year that I picked up two must have cheap tools.

1) Non Contact Voltage Tester

2) Electric Outlet Tester

These are so handy to have. Now I only have to remember where I put them when I need them !

Expanding to Handy things to have in your pocket. I bought this Kerskaw pocket knife at least 30 years ago. 2.25 inch locking blade with rubber handle. For its size you do not notice it your pocket. Nice to have with you . ....

Things you should not have in your toolbox

When you have lots of stuff the problem is you cannot find it when you need it.

One of my neighbors took this to such and extreme that even if he only had a couple of washers leftover from a project he would take them back to Home Depot. That way he would not have to search for them as he knew he had Zero of them in inventory !!

I have to say I just never take leftovers back and man do they collect dust in the garage.

In an attempt to get more organized and be able to find it when I need it I bought a 4 Craftsman storage boxes from Lowes. The two main boxes are SQUEEZERS anything that works like a pliers, and the other Is POINTERS chisels, screw drivers etc..

Everything is just tossed in the box based on this division, hard to believe how many of each I have. But at least I have a shot at finding what I need, beats my old NON method of just tossing into one box, or hanging on wall was hopeless
