Most people have heard it said that the key to productivity is organization. They’ve also spent valuable time looking for essentials, like car keys, notebooks, or spectacles when they could have been engaged in more productive activities. The next step on this journey of self-realization is, of course, to try something new and organize work spaces, and then assess whether better organization makes for a smoother workflow. Supplies such as cube modular units and craft cabinet storage solutions can make any space – home office or craft room or hallway – less cluttered and more functional.
Less clutter, more time
Recently the Daily Mail offered its readers some fun facts about the amount of time people can spend looking for lost or misplaced objects.

Misplaced keys, pens, wallets, glasses, and phones all take little snippets of time from the more important things you have to do.

A very simple way to clean up your clutter is to organize various spaces so there’s a right place for everything, from craft or school supplies to keys and spectacles.

Simple storage solutions like stacking cubes and craft storage cabinets can magically clear up the clutter and let you see the beauty of each space.
