If I could find my scissors then I wouldn't need 15 pairs!

So, I decided that it is really time to clean out my workspace. I am removing half finished projects and putting them in a bin so that I can come back to them later. When there are lots of little pieces for the projects I am putting them in baggies so that everything stays together. I am also putting all of the Christmas crafts in a bin so that I can pull them out at the end of the year when it is time to get started on them again.

However, what I have really found ... is that I would have a WHOLE lot more space if I just got rid of all of these multiples of things ... like sanding blocks, pliers, and scissors! Really - I would not need 15 pair of scissors if I could actually FIND scissors when I was looking for them ... This is what came out of ONE drawer!

Oh my ... I have a problem ...

I was just saying last night to Big that I really want a place to hang my tools!! Because I have 5 pliers and 4 scissors and goodness knows how many other things to squeeze metal.
He said just throw into a toolbox so you can bring it with you in the shop, they don't understand!
Yes, organizing is so peaceful!
good for you.

Yes - I can't operate like that - It is almost that since there are so many things to see in a tool box then I don't actually see any of it ... It all gets mixed together.

Okay, my resolution is to get organized, too!
At least you know you won't need another pair of scissors!

Aloha ... my goal is to stay organized ... I seem to get organized fine ... but it might only stay that way for 5 minutes! LOL
