(Video link HERE.) I LOVE this video! Filmmaker/designer Casey Neistat describes his great Intuitive Categorization Method for organizing his tools and little stuff. I’m loving it especially because it showed up right on time, in time, this morning.
I’m in a big studio cleanup and just ordered some nifty, inexpensive plastic boxes with adjustable sections to reorganize my jewelry tools and supplies.
The surprise challenge has been that although I had decided to organize them one way, the materials demanded that I organize them in a another, more intuitive way. “Function follows form!” they shouted.
I capitulated to their niggly little metallic, glass and stone suggestions, and now all that remains is to figure out how to label them. I’m liking the polka dot, color code solution. Something about all that scribbly writing on the exposed boxes is offputting. Like having a cereal box in the middle of the breakfast table, ads and ingredients hollering at you. Am I being overly sensitive?
NOT. Whatever works, is what I’m going with.
Editor’s Note: Intrigued by Casey Neistat‘s very cool, markable red plastic boxes…
…we tracked ’em down at Amazon (or something very close): Akro-Mils Red 12-Inch ProBox Plastic Tool Box. Akro-Mils makes several styles of red (and other) storage bins.
