Basement? Garage? Garage shop? Separate Shop?

I have never had a garage so they are in the basement.... frown

Toolbox in the garage & on top of my tool bench. I keep the most often used tools(phillips head, pliers, 3/8 ratchet) right on top of the bench so I can just grab & go. But, it's not a mess and I don't kanban anything as I'm the only one using my tools. However, most of my tools have a proper place.

I have buddies that have their tools all over the place. What a mess! But, they know exactly where everything is. smirk

I recently had a home built on some acreage. I have an attached garage and a separate metal building to use as my work shop. My tools are in the shop and I keep a few basics in the house like a multi bit screw driver, tape measure, hammer.. . But I'm a semi mechanic and don't have the same level of tools at home as I do at work.
I've had to bring tool(s) home from work to do things at home.
