I'm really happy with how the hanger is coming together.

Mike's not been happy with the level of mess in his hanger, and I've been trying to explain that the overriding problem is a lack of places to put things. After all, you can't put things back where they belong when you're done with them if they don't have a place to belong. I finally convinced him.

So this weekend, we got two sets of Rubbermaid shelves, and a stack of containers. I spent Sunday going through stuff and putting it into boxes, sorting it onto shelves, and labeling everything. I'm really happy with how it's turned out. The two sets of shelves are now populated with boxes of stuff. On the old shelf rack, I moved the shelves around so they're perfectly positioned to hold those boxes with little drawers for hardware.

Last night, I made another pass and I think I've got the last of the junk collected into one place. I'd have finished up, except I took my labeler home, and I didn't want to put stuff in boxes or drawers without putting labels on them. Another hour or two next Saturday and I should be happy with it. It's not going to be perfect - I'm sure random hardware will still collect in places, and we still need a clamp rack, and....but it's a lot closer, and should stay a lot cleaner.

Now why can't I do that in my apartment?
