The Art of Tidying Up!

For many people at the moment, we are finding ourself with more time on our hands than we are comfortable with. Whether you have recently gone back to work, or like me, were never off in the first place, there can be a lot of pressure to ‘Do something constructive’ with our time (particularly from idiots like me!) urging you to get on with painting, building new terrain, play games and use the internet to stay in touch with friends. These are all laudable pursuits and of course, I heartily recommend them. However, I would like to propose one more worthy but often overlooked activity... Tidying up your workspace!

The latest episode of The Quarantined Wargamer became available on Friday and if you haven't already seen it, here it is. 

Our painting stations, desks and mancaves can get a bit messy at times. Its happens to us all at one time or another. But keeping things tidy and organised not only helps keep a workspace efficient its also good as a way of clearing the decks mentally, preparing ourselves for the next painting session.

So, do you agree with me? Do you have any good tricks and advice for organising your hobby space that you would like to share? Please feel free to and share your thoughts and suggestions in the comments below (so long as they are polite!) or over on my youtube channel. 


  1. I find it necessary on occasion. It's also an excellent way of accidentally finding that thing for which you tore your office apart while looking.

    1. Yes, the "dammit, I needed that last week" moment. We've all been there!
