    Week #2 of the clean shop program.

    I built a new shelf thingy to help organize the shop, er, garage. Finished it up, everything had a place to go and the shop is clean. Even turned the old shelf thing into a 'project cart' on wheels.

    So now when I go out there, I see a clean shop and feel empowered and enthused about actually being able to do something and not just feel overwhelmed by the mess.

    For proof, I attach the following photo. I know it's not clean, or all that uncluttered, but to my addled mind, it's way more organized than before...

    I'm glad I'm not the only one! I've spent months before when I went out there and it was just so filled with crap I was like, "Eh, Why bother". But now, I can actually do something. It's like a revelation, if I can keep it clean, I can do things!
