It was once quoted that "a busy workspace is the sign of a busy mind", and this is true. As you can see, my workspace is rather messy, and I have a constant stream of ideas running around both in my mind and in real-space. But it does get annoying when I try to find something I need, or when I need space. So, in order to help all you messy types out there, here's a few tips I've used to help organise and categorise my workspace.
Parts Clearance and Trays
A great way to clear up is to sort out your spare parts and models. Speaking from experience, you are very unlikely to need every spare part you own. It's a good idea to have a clearout every now and again. go through every part and ask yourself: "Do I really need this?". If so, put it in an empty box for now, if not, the bin, or give them to someone who wants them.
Whilst people do like to show off their work, in most cases, there simply isn't enough house space to show them all. Using a carry case is a great and simple way to store projects. Even desk drawers can host your in progress collections. You could possibly organise you current projects in a line, so you can systematically go through them left to right (or right to left, your choice).
