What would you consider the perfect toolbox!

For around the house, my bench seems to have enough space. A spot for every tool. Doesn't keep the kids and wife out though.

In all seriousness, I like 5 gallon buckets. I use a couple for different sets of tools, and have one general one that has one of those handy slip in carriers designed to fit the bucket. Holds tools inside and outside of the bucket.

I've always wanted to find the toolbox that magically makes 50-100 lbs of tools weigh less than 10 lbs. Ideally, just something with wheels that fits everything but is still small enough to carry around on the job.

I guess I'm lucky....my wife knows how to use most of my tools and appreciates them as much as I do.

As for the kids...I just got my 10 year old his first tool box along with some starter tools...

I've Tryed a few times to put a collection of the most needed or used tools in a bag/box , always run out of room or 20 mins later think to add some more. I'm only a beginner and with over 4 tool boxes and 5 crates and 3 large sports bags to pick from, can't never find the right mix, like ppl said before, take what you think you'll need and still leave the one needed behind.
A better question may be what tools are a must, in a standard toolbox.
Power drill and acc...
Socket set
Multi-meter
Pliers ( love the snap-lock ones )
Side cutters
A starter than I can think of,
One tool I have come to really appreciate is my 750mm breaker-bar

it all depends on the job at hand, when i start to organize my hobby shop after i remodel it i plan on setting up 2-3 tool boxes with the basic tools for any type of work around the house, ie an electrical tool box, a plumbing box, carpentry and dry wall won't have a box as that stuff will be in the shop. so i guess just two boxes, yes i will have some of the same tools in each box but it will be a grab and go deal, with specialty tools not that far away, work tools are already at work in a bag in my work truck, they don't come home because i don't want to forget them
