Feeling organized ?

Ok, one thing got organized this weekend, while the rest of our surroundings are still in a disarray. I decided that with Tony's Birthday this week I would try to help him organized his shed. When ever he wants to do a project he spends hours trying to locate the proper tools, even if it is a ten minute job. I know how frustrated he has been, so I figured it would be a great Birthday gift, however last Friday I went to 6 different places to find the best kind of shelves, for the right price. He seems to have a sense of things around any holiday, and decided to go buy things for himself, and once again he let me know he wanted to get the shed in order , and decided that he would spend Saturday doing so. I told him that was exactly what we were going to do, then proceeded to tell him what I had researched.
Thank goodness I didn't buy the shelving I planned to, since it wasn't what he wanted, so we made a trip to Home Depot together to pickup the proper supplies.
He was like a child with a new toy with excitement as we cleaned out the shed, put together the shelving units, organized his tools in categories while putting them in clear plastic totes, then labeling them accordingly.
By the end of the day we were both pretty tired, but thrilled to have accomplished this great feat. I just pray he will love it enough to keep it organized as he uses the tools.

That much fun should never have to be repeated twice.

YIPPY! What a great looking, organized shed!
I do hope you keep it locked so no one can come help themselves to your organization!
Happy BDay forever more!
