More like the reverse.  Moved from apartments when single to house when 

When single I kept a tool chest, small floor jack and stands for the 
car.  For non auto a couple of buckets with the basic hand tools, 
circular saw, jig saw, corded drill, sander, router, angle grinder, 
etc.  With a clamping straight edge and saw horses I could do most of 
what I use my table saw for now.

You might consider going through your tools and culling them down to the 
basics.  The big tools you could sell/donate to a close friend/family so 
you can use them if needed.
