Organizing is more than just cleaning off a table. It's about sorting and storing materials and supplies so you can access them quicker the next time they are needed.
I do this periodically and especially after a big project when everything seems to be out everywhere!
As a diehard organizer, I decided to lay out my tips and suggestions for doing a studio cleaning and organizing with a clear step by step process from start to finish. There is ever a notes page for organizing your organizing!
How much time it takes you depends on what you have and how much you are willing to do. But I can testify that having your tools and materials organized makes your next project go so much smoother and gives you more time for actual creativity rather than searching for what you need. AND you can see at a glance what needs to be added before you begin!
(But honestly there are always some bits and pieces I can't find because I forgot to label the box! LOL)
