I recently had to do a bit of work under the house that required quite a few tools but found it too cumbersome to carry them individually. It was a reasonably small space and I had to crawl quite far to get there. I was however lucky enough to have just the right thing for the job.

I happen to eat a fair bit of rice, and being a cheapskate, I like to buy it in bulk. This means I'm starting to get quite a collection of the sacks that the rice comes in. They seem too good to throw out and I use them when I can. If I had a need for them I reckon that they would make some nice couch cushions, but in this case the bags were perfect for carrying my tools.

Why not use a proper tool bag for the job I hear you ask. Well, I don't do this kind of thing too often and it would just take up space I don't have, besides, I already had this on hand.
The bags even come with a handy little zip on the top to stop things falling out. This made the job so much easier. I was able to throw my tools in the bag and crawl to where I needed to be without too much hassle, and because everything was secure in the bag I didn't have to worry about losing things.
