I’m getting the stuff in my house in order in preparation for the move.
I’ve tried several ways to organize all those odds and ends in my tool box. There are all those little bits & pieces of stuff that I have to keep;
- the spigot thing to drain the freezer when it defrosts
- the sharpener for the chain saw
- the needle to blow up the basket balls
- extra fuses for the stove/oven
- extra curtain hooks
- curtain rod holder-upper thingys
- etc, etc.
Once I tried a small cabinet with little drawers. I had to open each little drawer to find what I needed. Even with labels it was still difficult to find what I wanted. As soon as the movers picked up the small cabinet, turned it upside down several times and put it in the bottom of the moving box, everything in the drawers was messed up again.
NOT SO this time!
I found this lovely little box made by the Stanley Tool Company at my local hardware store.
It’s called a “Professional Organizer.”
It has a break resistant clear lid which allows me to easily see what I have AND the lid is designed to keep the storage cups locked in place. You can turn this baby upside down and shake it and everything stays in place!
The cups are removable and come in 3 different sizes so I can store lots of gadgets in the big cups or just a few in the smaller cups. Because the cups are removable I don’t need to take the whole container, I just remove the cup that I need to do the job.
I can store the professional organizers flat on the shelf and stack them up or I can store them vertically like books on a shelf depending on the space that I have.
It is going to be amazing arriving at the new house having all my odds and ends still in their own containers and knowing exactly where they are.
So for this move, I won’t have a screw loose!
