    I use the sedimentary method too. The only small items, easy to find, are the wrenches in the molded plastic boxes with a space for every wrench. The box is as valuable to me as the wrenches.

    I use "speciality" boxes. I pick up tool boxes at garage sales and auctions and one is my soldering box-everything soldering is in there. One is my pop rivet box-- everything for pop riveting. One for zip ties....................... Well, you get the idea. I have MANY of these on shelves, all labeled and it seems to help me find what I need when I need it.

    I also add some memory training to that with what I call the "where did I use that last system"

    I don't have a large Shop. I have a 16X24 foot wooden storage building. Inside are two tables that I work at. My tool chests are next to one table. I have the long handle yard tools stored in a 55 gallon plastic barrel. I store my Brushcutter, riding Lawn Mower, Pressure Washer, and small Air Compressor in my Shed. I place all odd and ends in Labeled Plastic Coffee cans. I make sure that everything stays orderly. It makes it easier to maneuver my Wheelchair around.

    Lotsa shelf space. Lotsa plastic storage boxes on those shelves with tight fitting lids and labels that accurately indicate what's in the box. Every trip to Walmart or Home Depot results in another few new boxes.
