10. “My scissors hang from a string with a hook from the ceiling. this way they are all spread out in front of me , far enough away to not be in my face but always within Reach. Never have to dig through a drawer, tray or cup. Takes one second to grab them and one second to but away. I also hang my glues this way with a binder clip on so the tubes hang easily on the hook. I also have a few other small items hanging such as a needle threader. This really works great because it is like having everything on your work space but is not in your way and never needs to be put away.” – Marianne H.
