How to Organize your Work Spaces


I was talking with a couple of the admins and well I really wanted to create a whole section dedicated to this. This might have to satisfy this instead. I was wanting to see some pictures or have some people post up some ideas for organizing an area. Like organizing your work bench, or the garage, even the kitchen cabinets. So if any one has any advice or pictures post them up

Oh one of the Ideas I had was to use jars to keep all your extra nails. Keep the nails or what ever in the jar then take the lid and screw it to the under side of a work area... then when you need a nail or something unscrew it from its lid then screw it back on to store it away dont have any pictures ... my bad :\

How to Organize your Work Spaces


I made this one to hold coffee jars.
The slats swivel and the pegs hold them at an angle that makes them easy to remove.
Then you can pull the peg and they lay flat. Po)
Double drilled, centered mounting holes in the front to screw to one stud.

How to Organize your Work Spaces


My Mess.

This house is a little weird. With the exception of the living room, the laundry room is the largest room in the house. Bigger than any of the bedrooms, it does double/triple/quadruple duty: laundry room; linen closet; pantry; tools; quilting room; winter work room; general storage; etc. etc.

The pic is taken from the doorway. The wall behind my right elbow has a small chest freezer, water softener, washer/dryer and water heater. The wall to my left is lined with more shelves with pantry items, linen/towels, more sewing stuff and more tools. The small plastic containers hold my smaller tools and supplies (screwdrivers, chisels, hammers, clamps, etc) If I want to be able to find them I have to keep them separate from DH's. This is actually the neatest it has been in months.

There should be a table in there too, but we pulled it out to use for Thanksgiving and haven't put it back yet.

Oh, I would love to have a storage area that big. We have a separate room for storage, but I call it 'the landfill'.

I organize it and less than 2 weeks later it looks like heck again. It seems that our family has sudden attacks of memory loss. Everyone knows where to go to get something they need, but can't remember where to put it when they're done with it.

If it's not a memory issue, then it must be 'slobaholism'.

Personally, I got great organizations skills.

It's the keep-it-organized skills that seem to be lacking!
