How do I organize my household tools in a very small apartment?

I have a 300 sq foot apartment. Currently, 3 cubic feet are occupied by my tools (basic household stuff - wrenches, power drill, screw drivers, screws, pliers etc) which are in disarray, and now that I look around another 5 cubic feet are occupied by turtle care supplies. Currently, they are all on the floor (in a tool box, and a milk crate) using up valuable real estate. I would love to hang them on the wall, but all our wall surfaces are taken, so I'm looking for a way to organize what is currently an ugly plastic box filled with disorganized tangle of tools, and a heap of turtle stuff into something pleasing to the eye, and maybe something stackable so that I can somehow consolidate stuff that is currently using 8 precious feet of floor space into a smaller footprint. Extra bonus points if the magic organization system looks good and helps me to actually organize my tools so that I don't have to stick my arm into a metal tangle to get a phillips head screwdriver.
