I'm all for having your own space. http://www.rod-o-rama.com
But I'm still not a fan of leaving your tools lying around. I try to put 
everything back at the end of the day. That way when I need it I know 
exactly where it is and don't have to go looking.

Harbor Freight is your friend for things like that. For regular tools like 
sockets and ratchets Sears is my reccomendation, though I also have a good 
selection of Mac, Cornwell, and Snap-On. I wish they would quit bringing 
that truck by here, it's just so damn tempting..
