One thing I'm always short of is time, and nothing frustrates me more than wasting time looking for things.
I keep my van fairly organised and I know where everything is when I'm working - a place for everything and everything in it's place. But at home things are a different matter at the moment.
My workshop was getting full with timber left over from jobs, stuff too good to chuck away or cut up for firewood but then not needed at that moment. My workshop isn't huge so I'd end up tripping over stuff or having to work in one little area because of it and as I take on more and more workshop work it's becoming an issue.
My storage shed next door to the workshop was no better. It had building materials for the extension, feed for the chickens and lots of odds and sods. I decided the other night to clean it out.
It took me a few hours and a good few bags of rubbish but I got there in the end. Then I got my brother to come over with some shelves (dad had brought a job lot) which I could then use as a timber store.
The shelves are heavy duty (near the maximum of what we could lift) but they are perfect for storing timber on. I removed lots of the slats so the timber could breathe, one is 9ft long and one 8ft, perfect for the oak and joinery pine I've got for different jobs customers want. I'm going to add some 4" pipe to store mouldings in and a section down the side for ply wood.
The workshop also feels like a different place with lots of space to assemble things and move stuff about.
What about you? Do you keep organised to make the most of your time or do you wish you were better at it?
