What's On Your Shelf?
I find keeping my books in order is a great way to keep track of what I have already read. The above picture shows the books I have read. It's a mix of picture books, mid-grade chapter books, WWII books, young adults and the occasional adult book. I have another shelf for autographed books. My books are all organized into sections: travel books, adult fiction, classics, Christian, poetry and of course resource books. I've discovered that having my books sorted into categories helps when I begin researching a specific genre. I keep that subject matter or type of book together so they are easily found if needed. They do get mixed up on the I've read shelves, after I am finished with them. So now you know...I like organization. I have a similar organizational system in my email and my file cabinet.
I have a friend who just moved to our neighborhood. She was particularly pleased with one kitchen cupboard. It has a HUGE lazy-susan in it. She put all of her spices in alphabetical order. This is a great idea! I keep buying spices I already have because I can't find them in my spice cupboard.
WHAT DO YOU HAVE THAT HAS TO BE PERFECTLY ORGANIZED? Do you have a friend like mine with a great system? Please share...
