Hey Joe.
Yup, looking at the pictures I would say that it is time.

Good luck with that. It will be worth it.

But Joe, it really looks lived in!! It makes me feel fuzzy all over, and maybe a little lost and confused…....but it’s homey!

Joe, I’m tempted to buy a plane ticket and go over there to help you, probably a week will see a BIG difference. Considering what you turn out with a shop like this, what can we expect from the re-organised one? Don’t despair part way through Joe, all your mates will be giving you moral support telepathically!

The best thing about reorganization is finding all the things you’ve lost or forgot you had. It’s like going to the store and buying new stuff. And the fun part is throwing away all the stuff that you know you will never use and can’t figure out why you have it any way. Keep it going Joe…..............

Joe, if you reorganize, how will you ever remember where you put everything, after having right where you
left it for so long. My shop resembles yours quite a bit, so I suppose I should start to reorganize also. Good
luck with the plan and keep us posted.

“how will you ever remember where you put everything, after having right where you
left it for so long.”

That is the biggest Problem I face!

One of the Keys is to Label all Boxes & Jars, etc. and make sure you can easily read them…
... easily SAID… takes more THOUGHT to really do… LOL

“reorganization is finding all the things you’ve lost or forgot you had. It’s like going to the store and buying new stuff.”
You’ve got that RIGHT!

“And the fun part is throwing away all the stuff that you know you will never use and can’t figure out why you have it any way.”

It CRAZY… as you start trying to find places for everything, you’re forced to attack other areas to reorganize throwing away “Good stuff” that you just KNOW you can use Someday... stuff you’ve had for years… possibly going back to your very Young days… and biting the bullet to JUST THROW THE STUFF AWAY! You haven’t touched it in nnn years… what makes you think you’re going to do it al?!

So it’s NOT just a matter of Cleaning Up the shop like it would appear to be… at the very start…

Where are you going to put it all?
Wait I know I will mail you some empty boxes with return postage. Just fill them and return to sender;)
All kidding aside. Can’t wait to see the outcome Joe.

Reorganization can be dangerous Joe. Now you will have to remember where you stored everything, lol.
