    More Shop Cleanup

    I am doing this in phases as the holiday season allows. It doesn't look like much but, all of this stuff used to be in my shop.

    This is a continuation of my current efforts. I am classifying items in only 3 categories; 1 = I use it a lot and keep it right at hand. 2 = I use it frequently and it should be stored somewhere specific but still in the shop. 3 = I use it a few times a year and I am willing to walk the whole 50 feet to the shed to get it.

    All items that cannot fit in these categories (or aren't hiding well enough to be missed) are summarily sold, given away or trashed (insert diabolical laughter here) Booo-hooo-hooo-whah-ha-ha

    I'm seriously thinking of getting a shipping container out here to hide stuff in... But then I wouldn't have to get rid of it...

    Brent:

    Be thankful your shed is only 50 feet away. I got the bright idea to place my shed at the back of my property. It's probably 150' from the garage to the shed. I've been known to hook up the trailer to the lawn tractor and move things around using that.

    Your shed is nauseatingly clean.


    Cheers

    Jim

    You gave me some incentive Glenn. I put in only 2 hours this morning in the shop and spent the rest of the day cleaning, and started to clean out the shed.
    I now have stuff piled up to chest height, and can see all the wood I threw in the back of it, but I still cant get to it.

    Some rope, a hammer, a harness and some karabiners . . . you can do it!
