Organizing hobbies


My husband has a lot of hobbies that are spread throughout the house. I can’t figure out how to keep him contained and happy at the same time.

Use tool and tackle boxes to contain his tools and smaller items. Designate one convenient area for him to work on his hobbies and this will be where his tools are stored.

If he plays multiple sports and has a lot of gear, use duffel bags to contain the equipment. Use one duffel bag per sport. This way he can grab it on the way out the door. Keep all of these bags in one central location. Hooks in the garage positioned along the wall by his car will make it easy for him to load and unload when he arrives home. And yes, you get the bonus of keeping them from being spread throughout the house!
