It’s March, the winter tying season is coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t stop trying to organize your tying area.
Kelly Galloup has some great suggestions for ways that you can organize your tying materials. Definitely worth checking out no matter how large or small your material collection is!
This is something that I’ve been working on recently, especially with my hooks. My wife found two compartmentalized cassette tape organizers, and asked if I could use them for my tying desk. It turns out that they fit perfectly into a drawer and I can organize my hooks by category – definitely better than the “throw the hook bag in the drawer and shuffle around looking for them” method.
Kelly mentions stacked tupperware containers – they’re a great tool. The stack I use was under $10 from Wal-Mart. I’m still working on organizing the area as a whole, but it’s definitely been coming together better than it’s ever been.
