Well I finally broke down and hired professional organizers to come in and help with my shop ( and home office). Best money I have spent in a while. In a little over 4 hours these wonderful ladies took my shop apart, but everything in labeled bins, dusted the shelves and every corner, plus organized my home office.

Wow, you are brave. My shop may not look pretty, but I always know where things are. I would be afraid things would get moved, and say “Where is my combination square!”
Glad it helped you, and you can start the year fresh and new.

Ya think they would like a trip to Arizona for some 50 to 60 degree weather??
How did you ever find lady organizers that knew a 6-32 screw from a lag bolt

I admire your bravery.

I can’t find things when I clean the shop… can’t imagine what I couldn’t find if someone else did it.
Nonetheless, I will be cleaning the shop in the next 2 weeks (it may take that long!)
