 Bucket Buddies are commercially available and range from $10-$30 USD.  This do-it-yourself Bucket Buddy uses a widely available over-the-door shoe organizer. ​ One benefit is the clear pockets; this allows one to see their tools immediately. ​ Another benefit is that one can customize pocket size; one stitches the pocket to better conform to the tool's size.  Lastly, the riveted holes allow on to add carabiners to neatly hang often-used items like a tape measure, pen/​pencil/​marker,​ and duct tape.  The net effect is that with a bit of sewing one can quickly and easily create a portable, flexible, and affordable tool organizer in a few hours. Bucket Buddies are commercially available and range from $10-$30 USD.  This do-it-yourself Bucket Buddy uses a widely available over-the-door shoe organizer. ​ One benefit is the clear pockets; this allows one to see their tools immediately. ​ Another benefit is that one can customize pocket size; one stitches the pocket to better conform to the tool's size.  Lastly, the riveted holes allow on to add carabiners to neatly hang often-used items like a tape measure, pen/​pencil/​marker,​ and duct tape.  The net effect is that with a bit of sewing one can quickly and easily create a portable, flexible, and affordable tool organizer in a few hours.
