    You are probably a very visual person. You may not function well when things are put in concealed storage. Maybe implementing a storage system where everything has its place it is still visible would work for you. For example, a peg board for tools rather than in drawers... Fabric on open shelves and projects in clean containers...

    i would love to work as a full time personal organizer when I eventually retire from speech therapy. I love to organize things

    Me too. That's my excuse for not having cleaned the sewing room lately. However, I am to the point where I can't stand it anymore, so will have to do something.

    Around here the saying is ''Its on the islands ''-Out in the Bermuda Triangle there are several islands - Island of Stray Socks-Island of Lost Keys- "Glasses- "Gloves etc...etc...etc...And on occasion the island will send back some of the over flow to us.

    oh you are certainly not alone on this one. but, I try to clean up after each project and that has gotten me in the habit of putting some things it the same place over and over. My sewing area is a total disaster right now and I do not plan on seeing it clean and organized for quite some time.

    Oh, yeah! Exactly what I set out to do yesterday, get in there and go through everything and find out what is where. I now have a mess that is unbelievable and I have no idea what is anywhere. I did label a few containers and that is the only sensible move I made all day.
