I pretty much solved that problem years ago. I wrote an inventory program to keep track of almost everything. I have almost 10,000 items cataloged that are stored in about 700 locations. Locations can be rooms, drawers, table tops or boxes to name a few. If something is stored in a box, I also print Location Content Reports that are attached to the box. So, If I want to find my step drill, I simply enter "Step Drill" in the search box and it reports how many items were found. In this case I find 1 item: "Drill Bit, Step, 3 piece set" located in "Tool Box, Top Section, Bottom Drawer", which is located in the "Workshop."

The biggest problem is that I don't necessarily catalog everything, so sometimes I have to rummage through boxes of similar items to find what I want. I use Quicken to keep track of all my purchases and itemize each item in Quicken and periodically export the Quicken data and import it into the inventory program noting where the item is going to be stored.

Problem solved!
