Time to Clean Out or Organize Your Home

http://www.motherearthnews.com/diy/organize-your-home.aspx

January — the month of resolutions and a time to review priorities. Cleaning and organizing my workshop area comes to mind. It’s a mess! I moved to this house about nine months ago, and have never fully unpacked and organized all of the workshop tools and accoutrements. There are open boxes everywhere filled with whatever was easiest to grab and put in the box. What I need is an organization system for all of the stuff. But those cute little plastic boxes at the home improvement store are expensive!!

So, a friend has come up with an idea. His wife cuts the bottoms from cereal boxes, about 4 inches up, as organizing boxes. What a fabulous use for something that would otherwise be trash! I’m definitely going to give this a try.
