Time Saving Tips - Get Organized

I like to be super organized to combat my severe right brain-ed-ness. But alas, I fall short most of the time. I feel sure that if could organize things just right I would save oh, so much time in my studio. No more time wasted searching...searching...searching...

That's my studio, by the way - Oh, to shame...

I asked members of the EM team to show me their favorite methods for organizing their space and many of their ideas gave me tons of ideas for my studio (which is in need of a major overhaul.)

I like to use a big kitchen magnet strip (the ones for knife storage) to store my chasing tools- it's super handy, and looks great too- see a pic of this on my flickr account at

well ... there are some people that spend all their time organizing and cleaning up ... and there are others that create - which is really another way of "organizing" thoughts and ideas.

and, to the people that say that i waste time "finding" a "lost" item ... i answer ... that along the way, i discover and "uncover" a lot more than i "lose" !!!!!
