In a recent post, blogger and tack maker Nichelle Jones discussed organizing her tack collection. Since I have also been working on that lately, I decided a blog hop was in order. Here is my take on the Nichelle's topic.
I own a lot of model horse tack.
Most of it is grouped together with similar items and stored inside plastic storage boxes.A few of the pieces are tucked inside baggies...
but most of it is a big, jumbled mess.
This has become increasingly unsatisfactory, so I've begun the long, slow process of really, truly organizing my tack collection.
I'm using the same storage boxes, but now every single piece of tack is individually bagged. My bags of choice are these snack bags from the grocery store. They are super affordable, plus their long, skinny shape is just right for bridles.
I've also started making id tags for each piece. This makes it easier to identify things quickly, plus I really like the way they look. It's hugely satisfying to open my previously jumbled box and see all these neat baggies and tags!
So that's my take on organizing the tack collection. Does anyone else want to share their methods?
