Came across the picture below and corresponding article while on Pinterest the other day. “Pinterest?” you ask? Yes – it is not just for women anymore. There are tons of pretty cool things over there related to preparedness, shooting, gardening, camping, knives, etc. Anyways, I saw the picture of the well organized supply cabinet and it got me thinking – my organization stinks.
Yeah – I admit it I am unorganized. I keep trying and trying and struggle to get where I want to be. The “slap in the face” moment happened the other morning in preparation to take my family fishing and I couldn’t find a pair of multipliers. I was so frustrated. I have 3 pairs of Gerber multipliers and could not find a single one. I thought to myself that this was not good and I should be able to just walk over at any given time and pick one up from its normal, designated area. Nope. I finally found one in my Jeep’s glovebox.
So – I need to improve. I have tote boxes with categorized items in them and most of the time I can find what is needed. I have shelves and cabinets with supplies as well. There are no excuses I just need to double step and get it done.
The picture above represents some very organized supplies. Looking at it we have various food items, extra water, extra pairs of shoes, couple towels, flashlights, radio, extra batteries, and of course toilet paper. It is well organized and very easy to find what you are looking for even with a quick glance.
Gotta get to work.
What is your system of organization?
