I am too embarrassed to put a before picture on BUT --- take a look at my inventory thus far --
Now since I've taken the above picture, I've replaced the box on the right with one to match the three bankers' boxes on the left AND I've added four underneath the table. ANYTHING that is sturdy and small enough to fit into a numbered envelope goes into these, with the names of the shops on the boxes. Three shops are sorted now with one to go. Three shops fit into eight boxes and the items that are large are neatly arranged (and yes numbered) in the huge wardrobe where these items used to be housed.
It also helped me find items I'd forgotten to renew or remove from inventory AND I was able to empty a filing cabinet where I kept Whimsey's hankie inventory (by numbers even then) -- since it's now in a neat box. His next suggestion is use the filing cabinet for the smaller of the larger items .. and THEN use the wardrobe for the really large stuff. I'm going to do that, but I'm not going to TELL him I'm doing that -- I'm not about to pay him a consultant's fee!!! :+) (Oh and the stuff you see under the table I was able to move a bit -- all of my packaging items have been sorted into boxes also, underneath the packaging table. WHAT A GUY!!! :+) Ann
