So Many Cables To Organize


My projects come in waves, and reassessment has become part of the “game” for me. For this week’s project…yes, I’m actually doing an intense project this week in case you missed those…it was time to go back through the cables and other stuff because the way I had them organized just wasn’t working.

The drawer above is in my studio, and it’s where I keep the cables and a few other electronic stuff. These are items I don’t expect to access that often because after this I put a small table in there. This corner is also my art corner, you see, and now every time I go in there I have to take the stuff off the table, move the table, knock over a CD rack of CD-Roms I still need to go over and forget they’re there (my computer situation is a bit annoying at the moment but that’s for another discussion), and then go through bag after bag to see if I can find what I’m looking for. Over the past few weeks I’ve had to go in there trying to find this or that. Well this week I wanted to make this task easier.

The goal: go through and better organize the cables so I can find them easier and reorganize this drawer with my regular electronic drawer to make it easier to find what I need.



Quick Project: Sorting The Records

Leave a comment

Yep, it’s that time again. I don’t get a lot of files I need to save usually but 2016 dealt with a lot of extra paperwork because it dealt with my surgery. And during the recovery I kind of let the paperwork go, and it piled up. By paperwork I mean there were a bunch of records I didn’t need anymore and it kind of built up in my folders. This week, with help from my dad, I went through and figured out what I needed to keep, what I needed to shred, and what I needed to pop into the recycle bin (anything without my name on it…for example, government files often include uses information that they send every time in case it is useful to a particular situation but afterwards means nothing if I don’t have a grievance or since I’m already registered to vote). I keep thinking I’m going to do this at the start of the year but for some reason it never gets done until June and this features a lot of stuff dating back to before the surgery.

So I broke out the sorting table, had my dad go through what I wasn’t sure about, and now my folders aren’t so jam packed with junk. Now if I keep my goal of doing it the first week in January (my dad says I should do it more than once a year but normally I don’t have that many papers to go through since the most I get I already know are only necessary for the next month and I’ve been good on the incoming lately but not the backlog) maybe I won’t have to make this a project that takes up my day. Maybe.
