The Big Reorganization Project
Days 7 and 8
Have you ever done the Grand March? The couple in front of you has to step ahead so that you and your partner can take their place. One couple turns to the right; the next turns to the left.
That's how the BRP has gone the last two days. Move one thing so you can put another in its place.
Having stepped away from the BRP last week to meet some deadlines and enjoy some social occasions -- including my 71st birthday -- I dove into the storage room reorganization Monday with gay abandon.
By that, I mean I gaily abandoned a bin of dress fabric, piles of mouse-chewed batting, a stack of fleece cut into scarf widths, a few toys, and other miscellaneous items that were taking up space on the shelves on my side of the storage room. Goodwill, here I come!
I realized that there was valuable real estate in that storage room where I could safely store bins of my least-used fabrics and projects, but I needed to clear some things out and compact what was left.
|Compacted corner includes files and scrapbooking|
|Recently-cut scrap strips|
|Repro fabrics replace batting on the top shelf|
This is what MY side of the storage room looks like now:
Two days have not been enough to get it all done. Since I leave for Paducah tomorrow, I am leaving this mess behind:
|Left end of work table|
|Right end of work table|
As I said, I'll be heading to Paducah after doing the grocery shopping in the morning. I'm looking forward to connecting with a few blogging friends while I'm there. I should have internet access and be able to post updates. If you are going to be there through Friday, send me an email with your phone so we can connect (hopefully).
