Scorched Earth ()

I have something like your scorched earth policy. My shop use to get to the point where I couldn't proceed without moving stuff off of one surface to another surface, it itself needed to be cleared off first. So I just went to a "pick 3 things up" and put them away....only problem was I didn't remember where some of the stuff even came from...(sometimes projects took days or weeks to go before I hit the "cleanup" event). Anyway, it works for me, and I've been doing it for 20 years or so.

My solution to shop mess, is at the end of a work segment, I start putting stuff away that I'm done with (at least for the short while)... I don't necessarily have to put everything away or much of it, and it makes the end of the project that much shorter since I've done some of the cleanup already. By doing this cleanup at the end of a work segment, it also makes me focus what's the next step is on my project and what I might need for it. Some mental preeration, so to speak.
