First tip: Don’t!
Organization is something I’ve struggled with in the past. It seems so much easier to simply leave things the last place it was used. Way faster and easier in the moment. My sewing room gets even harder to organize once things start looking disheveled. It’s a slippery slope from there to a complete pigsty.
My mother was the perfect example of organization. Everything had its place (and a label to accompany it). She did her best to teach me that organized people are the lazy ones. She said when things were organized she never had to search for something or wonder where it was, saving time and energy.
This is the year I’m challenging myself to get organized and stay that way. If you’re like me, when you finally have a spare moment the last thing you want to do is organize. I’d much rather be sewing. But, if what my mother says rings true, once I’m organized I’ll have more time for sewing. I’m giving up sewing time now in hopes I’ll have more later.
Can you help me? What do you do to keep your sewing room organized?
