Why can't my shelves be self organizing? Why can't I click a button in a corner and hide the things I'm not working on right now. And so on.
In my humble attempt to get reality to get in line, I give you ....

Step 1: Warnings and disclaimers
Please use all due caution when doing anything.
Don't keep pointy things in your apron if there is a risk of falling, tripping, slipping or otherwise poking yourself inadvertently.
Your mother would be sad if you hurt yourself and so would we.
Step 2: Materials
a lot of velcro
remnants (Goodwill is a great source for awesome and cheap remnants)
Step 3: Motivation
Why do you need that? Well, a lot of times I'm running around wondering where I put the scissors or the screwdriver or the phillips bit or tape measure or pen or whatever it was I was using last. And what I'm looking for tends to vary depending on what I'm working on. But there are definite trends. Some tools I use for almost all projects, and other projects require specialized tools.
So, why not have an apron with pockets dedicated to just a particular tool(s) that you can paste on or remove at will. And you can paste and remove it from any surface that has the fluffy side of velcro on it.
Relish my moment of OCD joy with me.
