I enlisted the help of my girlfriend to help me sort out some of the chaos in the garage today. She’s fantastic at organising things and didn’t have anything planned for the public holiday so I sat her down with some plastic containers from the local $2 shop, her labelmaker and a huge pile of screws, nails, wall plugs and who knows what else.
An hour or so later, three shelves worth of ‘stuff’ was neatly fitted into the five divided containers with labels on the ends so I know which one contains what type of hardware. A bins worth of packaging had been thrown out and I’d reclaimed a lot of space back. She’s got designs on reorganising the whole lot now but if it means I can actually find things I’m not going to argue!
