Monday Makeover: Making Over Your Workspace (Part Four)

Now that you have a new workspace that meets your needs, all that's left to do is to take the TIME to keep it maintained--which I think we can all agree may be the toughest task yet!  Cleaning up after ourselves is the least fun part of any project...but in order for our space to stay organized and must be done.  

I find that I like to break my maintenance tasks down by the amount of TIME it might take to complete that even if I only have five minutes to devote towards maintaining my space, that way my TIME is still put to some use! Here are a few ideas to get you started on your own maintenance plan.

FIVE MINUTES: The Bare Essentials
  • Clear off your work area and place supplies into a tray to be put away when you have more time.
  • Make sure everything has a lid.
  • Make sure all of your tools are unplugged or turned off.

  • Put away all of your products and tools that don't require sorting.  
  • Clean the surfaces and tools you've used recently to remove scraps, glue, paint, glitter etc.

HALF HOUR: Deep Clean
  • Sweep the floor of your craft area, while looking for lost embellishments, etc.
  • Put away items that require sorting, such as scraps, brads/eyelets, etc. 

ONE HOUR: Special Project
  • Take on a project like sorting photos, re-assessing your inventory, tagging files or compiling kits.

I hope after our journey over these past four posts that you are making progress in your space or at the very least have a better idea of where to start!  Thanks for joining me and remember to have fun with this process! If you wish to re-visit the older posts in this series just click here.
