Socket set/tools best way to put away?

Hey kind of a odd thing to ask but i been raging all day


I just got a decnt size socket set / wrench set + a bunch of misc. screw drivers and what not


so my question it what would be the best way to store everything (especially the socket set) so i can just walk in and grab the right size i need without digging though a tool box ?


Right now everythings just thrown in there and it sucks trying to find a specific socket or a proper size screw driver

any suggestions?

you could take a block of wood, and either drill holes for them to sit in, or drill small holes, glue wooden pegs into the holes, and slide the sockets over the pegs.

Bonus points if the pegs happen to be ~3/8" square.
