Where Did I Put That…?!

Shelves

Ever started a new sewing, painting, or other craft project and couldn’t find all the materials, even though you know you have them?  I am sure I am not the first person with this issue.  Most of my materials are in labeled containers, but I have so many that I can’t remember the location for each one.  This photo shows only a portion of one of my many shelving units.

I decided to fix my problem by making a list with each container along with a diagram of its location.  Then, I lost the list!  Determined to go forward, I started another list and even rearranged some of my fabric.  I try not to have too many “miscellaneous” containers, because it is too easy to throw stuff in them “for now” then waste time looking for it later.

Being able to start and finish something right when I get the inspiration is so much more satisfying than having to stop in the middle to look for that little piece I am missing.
