Nice mate, looks like a fun job. Your stash is alphabetical so you could possibly just find all of one letter and sort it, then the next, etc. Still, I reckon it may take a little time to do! :wink:

Same here, using Raaco handy boxes with drawers by brand, labelled outside each drawer, and inside (plenty of space) by type,(fruits, creams, tobaccos.
Alphabetically would be easier, but I’m lazy and not exactly tidy.

@ladycrooks I think it’s great you’re trying to organize your stash, as the bigger it gets, without a system, it turns into CHAOS. Over the years, I have tried EVERY order of possible organization, and this included straight alphabetically, by flavor type, use, etc., and all failed for me.

With my OCD, the ONLY way I could keep it straight, was to FIRST organize by MFG, then within alphabetically. I have the hoard broken into three main sections. The working racks, mid-size / extras, and large 120ml+ jugs.

As the hoard grew, I had to make it COMPACT, or reaching, seeing, getting whatever flavor I needed would be a hassle, so 5+ tier nail polish racks, were the only way to go. Once I exceeded them, I added a few wall mounted nail polish racks.

More doesn’t make it better, it just makes it HARDER LOL.

Seizures can be scary as heck. Take good care of yourself and hope they find the root cause of it. Sending you kind thoughts and intentions.
Glad you have the stash project to give you something to do that will give you joy !!

You seem to get more than your fair share of medical problems @ladycrooks and I too wish you a speedy recovery and hope you don’t have another one.

Any ideas as to the cause?

If I’m being a nosey prick just tell me.

@ladycrooks it’s really up to how YOUR mind works. Mine (and my large hoard), forced me to do it only ONE way. I also need my mixing to be as FAST as possible, ESPECIALLY if I have a big queue to get through. I really did try sorting by TYPE for a while, and it was a slow motion train wreck for me, and my mixing style.

When I know I need an FA flavor, I go RIGHT to my FA area, and alpha scan to the flavor, and same for every other flavor. Do what works for you, and alphabetizing DOES take a little time in the beginning, but once it’s done, your done with it, and off to SPEEDY mixing…

It may look like a mess, but it’s totally setup in MFG areas, and within, all alphabetized.

I know these pics are RE-posts, but my EXTRA flavors (small and medium bottles), AND, flavors that are not CONSTANTLY used, are in the bins …
