It’s amazing how good you feel after working your butt off to clean and organize a room. My husband and I had lost sight of the basement floor and counter-top and spent a day with the kids tidying up, throwing out and organizing what was left. Everything has found a place back on sturdy shelving except for the smaller art supplies and it made me think about what systems are available.
I’ve decided that the best approach is to use a stacking bin system. This will allow me to customize the size of the bins to what needs to go in them. And I can color-code the bins based on what’s in them.
My experience at home can be translated to most facilities. For example, our kit assembly department uses bins on a rolling shelving rack. This helps them work more efficiently allowing them to have only the parts they need on the workbench.
I hope this gives you a little boost in attempting to clean up your workspace. Trust me – I felt more productive afterward. I am sure you will too!
