How long does it take you to find something misplaced? Statistics show, on average it takes 22.5 minutes to locate a misplaced item.
Depending on your workspace, you could spend over an hour a week searching for the right item. That’s 97.5 hours per year and an estimated $1900 spent just searching.
For every minute searching, you could be making sales. If you average 1 sale of say $30.00 every hour, that’s an additional $1560 lost while you’re searching. In total, you’ve already cost yourself $3460 and you haven’t even had your morning coffee!
Perhaps it’s time to consider organizing your work area...
Try utilizing your air space. By hanging some of your materials, your workspace will become more operable, allowing your customers to see items they might have otherwise missed while hidden somewhere in the abyss of your workshop.
