This is how we do it.
Two and a half years ago we put in hickory wood floors. We were going to put carpet in the bedrooms -- and then a political game happened at work.
The game involved dumping my hours down to ten/wk.
No extra spending.
Fast forward and I won the game last summer. This involved a lot of overtime.
My two and a half sewing rooms were not organized at all. I was spending way too much time losing stuff.
Wood floors are the way to go for easy pin & thread pickup. One room will be sewing --ONLY.
The other room will be a guest room plus storage for the kid's stuff.
Sewing stuff put back will be organized and labeled.
How's your spring cleaning going?
