DIY Electrical packouts and organisers

Hi All,

I am moving house soon and before I do I want to sort out my assembled DIY items and am looking for inspiration.

I don't do electrical or plumbing work often so would like something, like a packout / organiser / box?, that I can pick up and will contain all the major items I need for that task. I thought I may be able to buy premade kits like this but am struggling to find them to buy. E.g for electrical a box containing Wagos, sleeving, electrical screws, tape, wire strippers,etc.

So do any of you have pictures you can share of your set ups, or ideas about what items would be essential in an electrical kit, what best to put the items in, etc

    I've got a Raaco 4 drawer Handybox that I use for small parts. I use one drawer for electrical, one for plumbing, one for screws, and one for kitchen fittings. It holds enough for a DIYer.

    I also bought a job lot of Makita carry cases off of eBay, and cut out the internals with a Dremel, which was messy, but it created five strong, stacking tool cases where I put my specialist tools, e.g. electrical, metalworking, laser level (Bosch Quigo), etc.

    Then I have a Stanley Totebag for my common tools, a small Stanley Waterproof Toolbox for my PPE + first aid kit and all my very small tools including delicate measuring tools, and a Stanley Tool bag for heavier tools, such as mallets, rubber and regular hammers and prybars.
    The comments I post are my personal opinion. While I try to check everything is correct before posting, I can and do make mistakes, so always try to check official information sources before relying on my posts.
