Your Next Must Have Office Accessory: A Tool Belt

The tool roll I sewed yesterday is cool and all, but for day to day use, not especially practical. Unrolling it on my desk takes up quite a bit of room. I briefly kicked around the idea of thumbtacking it to the wall, turning my tool roll into a wall organizer. And then it hit me: I'd basically crafted an apron. If I attached a strap of some sort, I'd be able to *wear* my tools.

Goodbye tool roll, hello tool *belt*!

I know what you're thinking: this is fun and all, but how practical is this? I mean, a tool belt for office supplies?

I'm thinking it might be quite practical. Now that I've got a standing desk, I spend most of the day, well, standing. So having various tools on my waist makes them fully accessible. I'm certainly going to give it a try.

Mark my words: tool belts for programmers are so going to catch on!
