One way to save money on home maintenance is, of course, to "do it yourself". But to be able to DIY you need to right tools, which can be expensive, so it's important to look after them and keep them organised. My father is notorious for misplacing his tools, and winds up buying more than one tool - NOT the way to save money doing it yourself! To keep my tools organised I have a large workbench at the rear of our lock-up garage, and a garage storage system of pegboard and drawers to store my tools.
