'Tis the season for home projects. And you know what that means: a lot of hammering and drilling. Whether you're installing a new fixture or hanging a cool picture frame, you're going to need plenty of nails. But if you don't have a helper, keeping track of these little parts can be a pain. But we found this DIY idea on Reddit that will hep you avoid losing your tools.

This is a super clever idea especially if you're tackling a project alone. Because even when you have a tool belt, you still may find yourself fumbling for the small pieces, but this will help to avoid that scenario. (Editors note: before trying, make sure the magnet won't infere with any medical conditions you may have.)
