Every artist and crafter i know has piles and piles of supplies, ideas, inspiration magazines, notes, just all kinds of stuff accumulated all over. My studio was a horrendous mess until about a month ago.
It can be so difficult to sort everything and try to remember where everything ends up. For me, it's 'out of sight,out of mind.' Literally. If I cannot see it, then I forget I have it, or I remember it, but do not know where to find it. It is frustrating, and I can admit that I've gone and repurchased items that I didn't remember I already had.
So I purged stuff I knew I'd never use, and I organized what was left on a new shelving system. It is much neater now. and I've laid eyes on everything I have, when moving or separating it.
What is your best tip for staying organized? I could use all the ideas I can get.
