This isn’t a proper article. It’s just a glimpse in to my mind (quite a scary thought actually) on how I like to do things and maybe to give you some ideas.
I may have mentioned it earlier but it´s very important to me that I can get my terrain stuff quickly on the table and even quicker off the table (and when I speak about table I mean kitchen table). This has lead to the situation that our wardrobe has been full of stuff that I have been quickly “repositioned” after terrain sessions. I even found some green-stuff in the pocket of my suit at my friends wedding!
So when the year 2011 was reaching it´s end I promised to my wife that I would organize my stuff. I already had my terrain tools in a neat briefcase so I decided to follow that track.
Here is the tools case:

I used elastic band and a stabler to create little pockets where the tools could be placed. I placed also all my balsa in to the box.
Then I turned my eyes on my paints. After quick calculation I realized that I had 126 paints and they were all laying around in different sized cardboard boxes. This wasn’t a good thing so on the following day I went to the nearest hardware shop and bought two metal briefcases, one little bit smaller than the other. Again with the help of elastic band and few thin chipboard pieces I created my new painting case. It´s not the prettiest but it works!

Then I dived into the big pile of basing stuff. I didn’t have a clue that I had gathered so much stuff. It seems that it´s a good idea now and then to make some kind of inventory because I found stuff that I didn’t even know I possessed. Great!! I don´t need big amounts of basing stuff so I filled little plastic bags with different kinds of materials and put these bags into the briefcase. The bigger storage bags I hid from the eyes of my wife. It doesn’t look like it but there is thirty different materials in this case:

Now our wardrobe is in proper shape and I still have all the important stuff on hand. Win-win situation!!! The three briefcases are all at the upper shelf waiting patiently for the next urgent terrain session!
What do you do to keep your gear in order?
