I dream of being organized.
I subscribe to www.flylady.net newsletters.
I like organizing focused pages on Facebook. http://organizingmadefun.blogspot.ca/
I pin all sorts of organizing tips on Pinterest. http://pinterest.com/thedixonchick/get-organized/
I have all sorts of containers.
This is not my picture... I wish!!!
I also have one big mess of beads.
I touched on my desire to be more organized in my blogpost A Beader's New Year's Resolutions.
I figure I am not the only one who suffers from organizational procrastination and a gazillion half finished (or is half started) projects.
Today I started entering my bead inventory into an excel spreadsheet...how insane is that? Not quite as insane as you would think when you come home with the same tube of beads for the ninth time....
Here is the beginning of my inventory:
|8||Toho||16||tr capri blue||beadfx|
|8||Toho||44||opaque sour apple||beadfx|
|8||Toho||83||metallic broze iris||beadfx|
|8||Toho||268||IC Ocean Lt Bronze/Crystal||beadfx|
|8||Toho||610||opaque black matte||beadfx|
|8||Toho||803||lumi peachlined crystal||beadfx|
|8||Toho||922||purple lined white opal||beadfx|
|8||Toho||162c||trans dark topaz ab||beadfx|
|8||Toho||164f||tr lime rbowfr||beadfx|
|8||Toho||165f||trans lt siam rbow frost||beadfx|
|8||Toho||166df||fr tr rbow lavendar ab||beadfx|
|8||Toho||22f||s/l mt lt topaz||beadfx|
It looks better in Excel.... I also have a column for the price of the tube and the size of the tube - but that still needs to be filled in.
My plan is that by the end of the year, I will have a handle on my beads. (insert maniacal laughter here)
Who wants to join me?
I will give little challenges to myself and hope that you will follow along.
Think of all the duplicate beads we will not buy!!! Think of all the NEW beads we WILL buy!!!!
This week's challenge:
Find all your PhD's (projects half done).
Put each one in a ziploc bag with everything you need - or think you need for that project.
Please comment with how many PhD's you discovered.
I'll share mine too.
Let's spend every Friday blog on getting organized. Together we can do it. (I hope!)
