Once the cupboard was cleared out the sheets and towels could fit in and I was able to get to the boxes/containers. One holds curtain stuff. Tape, hooks, that stretchy white cord...stuff that I was keeping *handy* because I was/am going to use it for some curtains that I need to make. But this looked out of place now that the cupboard doors were shut and the vacuum cleaner was put away so I put these containers into the cupboard. I could do that because there was space in there after the cleanout. There wasn't much food in the toolbox, a couple of boxes of Taco shells and some cup-a-soups, so I took these and put them with the other food in husbands wardrobe. Great I could now get rid of this toolbox so I shut the lid, turned the handle and put it outside, ready to take to the shed.
Thinking a bit though I decided that I could put all the spare food that was in husbands cupboard in this toolbox and free up a shelf for him to keep his work gear on and that in turn would free up a shelf in another cupboard where I could store the overalls and gloves and other bee clothing. See, one thing leads to another but the final thing can't be done until the other things are done first. Such is my organising.
And because I had cleared another area in the bathroom there was now a handy place to put this toolbox/food storage container where it would be out of the way. So I go out to get this toolbox and...swear word. It was locked. Why would the stupid thing lock itself. That shouldn't happen should it. Shouldn't but did. I had a key though, ummm, where was that key...That's right, I had put it in the toolbox so it wouldn't get lost. The key to unlock the locked toolbox was safe in the toolbox. Apparently turning the knob to shut the toolbox so it stays shut locks it. How stupid is that!! So I now have a locked toolbox that is no good for anything until I get the key out so I can unlock it...
Son has told me what to try so tomorrow I will get my drill and see how good I am at using it. He says to drill out the pop rivets that hold the catch on, take it off, open up the lid and get the keys out then pop rivet the catch back on.
That sounds easy enough.
