I'm lucky enough to have a "year round" shop for the first time..
Well, except for the big tools that are on the carport and don't get
used much in the summer..
I try to pick an area at a time to go through, the lumber rack on a
wall is the current project..
Oh.. and almost time to get the AC serviced..
I forget who came up with this idea on the wreck, but the
guy said "every single time you walk in the shop, put away
exactly 3 things before you leave", and in a very short time
it's all straight again. I have tried it for a few years now,
and it really works....
Remember...just 3 things every time.....

I experience the same thing. When the shop is a mess I find it hard to get
motivated to do any work. Now that I've put the bins of Christmas
decorations back in the attic and otherwise straightened up it the bench is
calling to me. Got to get going on those new CD library shelf units, SWMBO
has given the okay to go right to the ceiling with the new ones so we don't
run out of room in no time.
