I have started doing some much much needed thorough cleaning & tossing. We want to put our house on the market soon, so I am trying to get through accumulations of stuff that have had no real home.
In this process I have discovered many little tiny things misplaced. I started putting them in small plastic containers. I have several different ones. I had emptied a plastic basket. My brain was working. A light went on. I put all my cups with tiny things in the basket. Now instead of moving six or so little containers, I can take them with me from area to area. You know the little stuff like buttons, safety pins, hair clips, paper clips, marbles, etc. How does that stuff get so all over?
Hope this helps you in your organizing. Believe it or not but my sewing room is the most organized room in the house even tho it is messy, cause I keep at it. In order to clean I have set myself a schedule 2 hrs. minium cleaning before I even look at my sewing-quilting.
