Well, I guess we all know what is not working…my memory! I just realized that yesterday that I missed the first Wednesday of February (can you believe that?) and I was supposed to go back and review an organizing project like I plan to do on the first Wednesday of every month. I think I finally managed to get all the Wonder if it Works Wednesday posts categorized if you’d like to back and read my past posts about it. Basically, in these posts I go back and review one of my previous organizing projects and share how whether or not it works.
In one of my very early posts, I organized J’s Lego directions. I love portable file boxes for organizing paper! I admit that they are cutesy or pretty but for me, they work. Here is a glimpse of the finished project from back in July:
I’m happy to say that this one works pretty well. Here is what the file box looks like right now:
I actually found this method of filing the instructions quite handy recently when I knocked a Lego spaceship (yes, the instructions you see on top of the box up there) off my son’s dresser. Lego spaceships are not sturdy enough to endure high impact crashes onto hardwood floors. I was able to quickly find the instructions and apologetically hand them to my son with the spaceship pieces. Unfortunately, we are still missing a few pieces to the spaceship so I suppose we could say it is still in the “repair shop” This is a view of the inside of the file box from today:
Here is another close-up of the top of the file box (I picked this one up at Office Depot because they sometimes run a buy 1 get 1 free sale on them but I think they could be found easily just about anywhere). Here is another look at the file box:
I am definitely calling this organizing project a success! Now, if I could just find those lost Lego pieces…
Which organizing projects are working (or not) for you?
