    I Wish I had a Before Picture

    I spent about 3 1/2 hours picking up today. Two of these shelves had stuff just sitting and getting dusty. After giving a bunch of fabric to a lady at church, four of my boxes were empty. I went through everything and when I put stuff in them, I also put pieces of paper saying what is in the box. I can find stuff now.

    Totes are terrific to get organized and find stuff!
    We had a flood in our basement last fall that really affected my sewing room down there - it took me quite a few weeks to sort out and organize everything. Now 95% is organized on aluminum shelving in a variety of sized totes

    Isn't it a good feeling to do do some organizing. It is an ongoing project in my room. I did clear my cutting table two days ago and now there is another pile growing there for a new quilt.

    Looks nice. I did the same thing this winter then got some super deals on fabrics this spring and now have to start over again. Not complaining just overwhelmed

    Looks great! I have been working on sorting by color and labeling too.

    However, today I had my insect person coming to spray and I just took whatever had fallen on the floor and tossed it in a box. Lol! Too many times of doing that is why I need to sort and sort!

    Your shelves look nice and tidy! I don't know about you but when my play room is all nice and neat I feel more like sewing and I have more fun in it so I try to clean up after myself at the end of the day....nothing elaborate....just picked up.

    Looks good! I need to do this but keep putting it off. haha I could work so much better if I was more organized. I just keep dreading getting in there and when I do, I get sidetracked. haha
