A bit of time ago, my pal Susan came by and the two of us sat down with some huge bins overflowing with paper. It was a daunting task and it was very good to have another mind to help me sort.
The system we came up with is that all of the papers were bundled with like then put into the bins, but this time, o glory be: there is a label. The old bins were too large and bulky for me to handle nowadays. These smaller bins are lined up on the shelf underneath my workbench and it's easy to see what's where.
This sorting session was the catalyst for a reclamation project that I'll be sharing with you over the next weeks. My business is changing and so there has been a LOT of purging. Honest questions such as: "Will I ever really need a brown paper bag full of wine corks?" were asked and answered in the negative.
Without any knack for organizing, I turned to YouTube and pulled up some great tips. That spinning thing above was one of them. Big Box Craft Store/40% off coupon. Sold. Man! It really holds a lot and even those stupid little wedge drawers do hold something.
Alot of folks hang metal towel racks and sit their big punches on them. I improvised by hammering a few nails in the wall and hanging my few punches. Works a treat.
I hope this helps someone out there. Please leave comments below if you have ideas. I have some other systems that I'll be sharing with you soon!
