In my buildings and around house and sheds, just inside doors, I keep several
small toolboxes: a drill, 2 screw drivers, crescent wrench, pliers, plastic
container with misc nails and screws. That way, I can't talk myself out of
doing a simple fixup chore: the tools are right there to get a simple job done.
Same concept, different implementation. I've got 4 boxes:
Grab the general and the specific and you're good to go.
If I had a larger spread I'd probably have a couple more "general" toolboxes.
And oh yeah, a tool belt/carpenter's apron.
The Yankee (by Stanley) push screwdriver with bits, goes a long way
towards most home type jobs, and is a great tool to have in the kitchen.
It was very common before every one got battery tools.
Standard slip joint pliers (works as a nut cracker), a good scissors,
utility knife, small (<16oz) hammer, some tie wraps, are all good things
for a kitchen drawer.
