I prefer a box. Everything stays more organized and neater. I had a bag but it just becomes a cluster fuck of shit if u have to many tools in it

I had the like 260 or 280 piece craftsman set, It comes in those craptastic plastic brief cases that hold everything neatly, The only problem is I spilled the shit every time I was working on something. Another issue with using that was I added a 6 piece plier set, and a screwdriver set. Trying to get to anything involved making a mess. At school I need portability but I wanted something decent to work out of. I HATE tool bags for anything besides when I am doing electrical or plumbing work, those 2 jobs require only a few standard tools so you don't need to have to worry about the bag becoming a mess. For mechanics tools get a box.

Craftsman had a 3 drawer plastic box for $50 on sale about a week ago and i snagged it up

It holds a lot, even my little 12 volt drill (i use it mostly for removing bolts with the adapter) It seems sturdy so far considering I have it loaded down, and as you can see I have a little room to expand (bottom drawer) I need some extensions, and cresent wrenches and such still so It will be filled up soon enough.

I want a bigger box but that will wait til I have a place of my own, for now this will work just fine.
