Where does stuff go?

I have several, many, too many wargaming projects on the go at any one time.  I run a system whereby the next project to surface in my in-tray gets one hour of my time until it is ready for a game, when it is entitled to a full day.

The problem with this system is that I order stuff on the internet, recycle the project to the bottom of the in-tray, and carry on.  When the required items are delivered I place them aside and wait for the project to re-emerge.

In the meantime, the physical manifestation of the ordered goods vanishes, never to be found again.  I forget that I have got it and order it again.  That’s why my loft is full of stuff in boxes, obscuring the stuff I need now!

Am I alone?

  1. You need to put all your project in a box and label the outside with the project is. Allows to sort it out nicely. You simply stacked the labeled box in a corner until needed.

  2. YesthatPhil and Trebian are much more disciplined as befit a retired production manager/art historian and a semi-retired treasury manager/historian. Each to their own though! I buy stuff, half paint it, then spend the next 3 years moving it between boxes!
