Overwhelmed it putting it lightly.
We built this wonderful addition which included a work room/studio space for me. However, when the holidays hit everything was crammed in here BEFORE the storage units were ready. It wasn’t to bad but I added to the mess with more wool, fabrics…and then it became the catch all room with odd items and outgrown kids clothes.
Everyday I try to spend 10-15 minutes sorting and organizing but, with out the storage units it’s basically shifting piles. The only thing safe right now is customer’s wool in their individual bags.
OK, No Judging now!
The wall to the left you can’t see is lined with bins and 3 drawer units
Digging through wool bins for the Ravellenics projects I trashed it even more. Well, in reality just shifted the piles around…and created a few avalanches.
It’s embarrassing & overwhelming but unless I empty it and start over with shelving, there really is not a solution. I can only knit and sew so fast…if I can get to the sewing machine!
Last week I found some temporary help. I’ve seen these in Target for about $20. but didn’t want to spend the money.
I’d popped in the local Aldi’s and found one for $9. Score!
I had lost numerous bags of fabric in this room and as I find and unpack them the shelf is filling up.
This is all wool I just unpacked from various shipments I’ve received but couldn’t put away properly…because I couldn’t get to it!
Larry has found a shelving unit that will fit perfectly on this wall and hold all 12 of the these 38 qt containers & I can store the un-dyed on top. Right now I have to move 3
exploding bins to get one on the bottom..which is why all the small bits are on top.
Obviously organization is not my forte but, I should never have moved anything in till the storage was in place…for now I’m working on it. Walking in there it’s overwhelming so I’ve started with 15- minute time blocks to help with that. I’ve set my own deadline to have it useable by 12 August…shelving or no shelving! I’ve been at it an hour now and am giving 15 more minutes before I stop for the afternoon. So, this post is for accountability!
The break is over….off to sort some more
What is your challenging space to organize?
