My Spring Cleaning Takes All Year

I read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo (rather I listened to it on Hoopla while I drew), and I had grandiose plans to organize my closets, studio, and computer files this year.  So far I've done my sock drawer and winter coats.
Organizing is a turtle-slow and ongoing process for me, and I am not opposed to asking for help with it.  For instance, I no longer need all those big boxes to store my artwork in because my friend Pat Hunt has engineered and created a new storing system for me.  She has essentially built large "envelopes" made from reflective insulation, which keep my work protected from both wet weather and the inevitable "dings"  that occur during the summer show season.  So how about you?  What are you doing to get yourself organized?

 
The Primaries
I looked through my materials the other day, and found a wide variety of colored pencils to work with.  I have Prismacolor, Faber Castell, Derwent, Graphtints, watercolor pencils, pencil sticks, Inktense, and Verithins.   And that doesn't include all the other things in my "do dad" collection!  

I really don't need all that.  In fact, we all theoretically only need
red, yellow, blue, black and white to create ALL the colors we need, right?  Join me for four weeks of discipline, using only primary colors on our projects!  This should be a real test of our color theory skills!
