My room is not messy; it is an obstacle course designed to keep me fit.
You know it is time to take action when you can’t find gear quickly to go on trips. Enough was enough.
Got to admit after all my day hikes and backpacks since Christmas, gear just landed and made a home on the floor. What is really bad… is I am VERY lucky to have a designated gear area with lots of storage and room, but not a single item even made it close to the shelves. Last year Dan, my husband even created a nifty outdoor magazine organizer (I save every outdoor issue) and helped me create a gear organizational system. So in desperation, I dedicated a few hours and got to work. Just to get a visual – here are the before and after pics.
The results are not perfect, but good enough for this not so neat hiker. It is a relief that I can now get ready for that next adventure very quickly … so great.

Problem is I now have the pressure to put things back where they belong. Anyone have any helpful suggestions?
