    It’s interesting to hear that most people say they spend more than 15 minutes looking for tools each day. My wife surprised me on my birthday with a lot of tools to help maintain our new house, but I haven’t even tried organizing them yet. Maybe I could keep them in better condition and spend less time finding them if I used foam to organize it.
