    CoyoteMachine. I think the problem is that we see the potential in things rather the the potential they have for clutter.

    Sometimes the potential is realized and a lot of times it is just clutter.

    Another problem is that I have too many interests. None get as much attention as I would like to give them. Not willing to let any of them go.

    Ever noticed when you get rid of anything there is almost always an immediate for what you got rid of?!
    I'm not having any of that, bury me with my stuff, big dog wins, man with most toys, etc.
    Clutter is my middle name!
    I'm not giving up any of my interests either; could someone please remind me of what some of them are? I forgot I've got so many I can't keep track. What was I talking about?!

    My strategy is that as long as I can close the door with all the loose stuff on the inside of the shop, it is good to go.......

    I also use the technique that post #4 uses...... What I use last in on the top of the pile.....

    Enjoy

    I save the big coffee cans that are plastic or metal (trash the cardboard ones) and do the same thing!!

    That's part of the secret for being organized and having a good memory. Hopefully I'm approaching the point of having enough "stuff" and being able to spread it out so it's visible or in labeled areas. There's been many times in the last couple of years that I've tried to "jury rig" something and after just a little rooting around come up with the perfect fitting latch or hinge or part that I had gotten decades ago and filed away.

    I've a 3 shelf, 9.5' x 3.5 foot pallet rack unit just for lubricants and vehicle liquids. Sorted by type and vehicle, labels facing out, 5 gallon pails on the floor.

    I've 2 shelves for plumbing supplies.

    Before I had to either pile everything in boxes or not store it. And invariably within a year after I tossed, for example, a 14" braided faucet hose, I'd need one. Now I tend to keep one or two copies of everything. Except wives.
    My rides - '95 Kubota M4700 w/ PEC, LA1001 FEL :'07 B7610, LA352 FEL, Bush Hog SBX 48 box blade, '09 Woods BH70-X w/ 16" bucket and thumb, 3pt pallet forks, Dale Phillips PHD, Jinma 8" chipper, 2 Piranha's, Winco 12KW PTO generator, Howse plow, 5' KK tiller, 5' Big Bee cutter, with a 2002 7.3L Ford F350 CC DRW 4x4 and '07 18' Hudson HSE Deluxe trailer - 5 Ton to haul it all

    that's funny. me thinks that your "B" drawer and your "S" drawer are too crowded.
    my wife paints all the tools pink, so that I won't take them.

    Hasn't noticed, even had to walk around it (strategic placement)
