I'm like your Mom, everything has its place. If it doesn't, and I have not used it in the last 6 months, it gets tossed out or burned. Period. Sometimes I wish I had some of that stuff back after a week or so, as after I toss it I find a use for it, but I got a small, but uncluttered shop that works well because of my organization.
I even go so far as to buy multiple sets of tools so that my snowmobile stuff stays in the snowmobile shed, my woodworking stuff stays in my woodworking shop, and my tools at work stay there. As for sawdust and stuff. I sweep up and put everything back before the end of the day. In fact I put things back as I am building. If I have to pause and look for a tool, I stop right then, put every tool away even if I know I am going to need it in the next process, and then go again. I just can't stand having to look for something.
Speaking of work, I am super organized there to and yeah it drives everyone else nuts.
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
