“For every minute spent in organizing, an hour is earned” –Benjamin Franklin
Start with a Clean Slate
The first thing you should do when you begin to organize your workshop is to wipe your slate clean.
Keep it tidy
An organized workshop is an effective one; it is way easier to have the needed tools in one place than trying to find that one paint that you haven’t seen since 2020 (yes, I’ve been there)
Give Everything an Assigned Place
This tip is vital for keeping a clean workshop. Give every tool an assigned place and once a tool’s place is assigned, keep it there!
Keep Similar Tools Together
If you want to avoid wasting time searching through piles of tools to find the one you need, then you’ll benefit from keeping similar tools together.
Label Every Box
Now everything has a designated storage place, but if you can’t remember where each item belongs, it’s not going to help much.
Divide by zones
Bring order to your workshop by dividing your area into zones.
Put Everything Away at the End of the Day
Every time you use your tools, put them back where they belong.
Everyone works differently, and there is no one standard size when organizing
But having an organized workspace is key to achieving better results.
Now your job now is to take the most effective tips you read and start putting them into action, today!
Go out to your workshop and take the first step now. Tomorrow, you’ll be glad you did.
