Organize Your Home Manuals

By Picardy Project on Feb 24, 2012

But will you think our tool manuals are?

I keep all our home manuals (fridge, computer, cameras, stereo, etc.) in a very organized file in the filing cabinet in the animal room. Our tool manuals used to be in there too, but then Chris started getting a lot of tools and well, they didn't fit anymore. So I made Chris a manual folder for the garage. But he still kept getting more tools. So I had to make more files for him.

The tool manual file was looking pretty good

But there was no place for all the Dewalt manuals

And, well, I always prefer label maker labels over hand drawn labels, so I figured....I SHOULD MAKE NEW LABELS! :)

I had run out of the little paper slips that go inside the hanging file folder labels, so I just cut some out of index paper and slapped on a label

Brought them all outside (with a couple extra file folders)

And voila!

And up onto the shelf it went

Normally it faces the other direction with a "Manuals" label on it, but I was ashamed that the label was peeling off and my label maker ran out of batteries so I couldn't print out a new one.

Okay, did I take it to new lengths with the manuals? I'm still not crazy, right?
