Never, never, never ending! That's what it's like when you're trying to get organized. Little by little I'm discovering what works and what I have to replace. Yes, replace! Some storage solutions that worked when I was just playing around with my crafting simply are not working now that I have other people come into my space and I have rapidly increased the volume of products with which I work. And if there is one top thing that I have learned since I began as an Independent Demonstrator for Stampin' Up!, it's that a lack of organization really cuts into my crafting time. In other words I'm sick and tired of hunting for things!
So I bought another drawer-tower from Ikea. The first one did wonders for my peace of mind. You see it replaced one of those plastic-rainbow-drawers-in-a-rickety-metal-tower monsters. Why monster? Well, put a couple of heavy items in a drawer and it comes off its slide. I grew very, very tired of fumbling around, battling with the skewed drawers in order to reach something I needed immediately. I don't think it's healthy to build up so much rage against an inanimate object, even if I'm certain it was manufactured by demons.
The tower of drawers from Ikea is such a delight. As soon as I filled the nine drawers, I knew I had to get a second one in order to finish my organization of all those little items that build up and take up room everywhere. Today I finished assembling it and now the big job begins: moving everything in my room in order to put it into its new home. There are a number of items that will be making their way out of the room permanently as well. Some furniture shifting---you get the drill. It's going to be a long, tedious, oh-my-back-is-breaking type of day. The gold ring for which I'm reaching is an organized room.
