Clearing out the junk...


My spouse of 35 years says to me this fall "You need to clean the garage". I says "Ya I know...."

So I start a couple weeks later and get all the big stuff organized and the garage looks pretty good. I was given six bolt bins from the local hardware store several years ago. Each bin has six drawers. I had filled all 36 drawers with "stuff" I knew I needed to sort as several of the bins had the same stuff in them. So away we go. When I got done throwing away, yes I said throwing away, and sorting I had emptied half of the drawers!

This gets me thinking I might do the same with my RC collection. I had one parts drawer that had my entire collection of screws and bolts all mixed together. I vowed to sort them at least into their respective sizes. Before this could happen I had to make a bunch of parts drawers empty. So off to the races again. I took my newly emptied bolt bins and started sorting stuff into them. I wound up purchasing a three deep drawer unit for larger stuff like engines, chargers and the like. Two, two shallow drawer units take care of sandpaper, battery shrink wrap, pack making supplies and the smaller stuff. I had four of the smaller drawer units used for all my small parts. I emptied two of those after throwing, yes I said throwing again, more stuff away. Of course some of the room came from consolidating several drawers into one. I hung up everything that is still in a package for easy viewing. I'm at the very end of the parts sorting. I's been a lot of work but I've found stuff I never knew I had and best of all it's all together so I can find it. AND I have some empty drawrs so I can collect more stuff Next will be my balsa and plywood supply.

Like I said it's been a lot of work but will save time and money in the end. I have some vintage stuff I'm going to try to sell if anybody wants it. Some may be just more junk I'll post some photos in a bit.
