via Cluttered Bookcase? The Benefits of Horizontal Stacking
Note: Having tried Mr. Conley’s ingenious strategy for efficient use of space,
I find the proof is in the pudding, or in the bookcase in this case. See pictures below.
I put the most used books on the shelves at far left. I kept them in the ‘normal’ alignment
because I use them almost daily. The center book case was entirely taken up by notebooks of my writing, Using the Conley Concept of Horizontal Stacking, I was able to store all the note books in just the center sections of those shelves leaving me room for a couple dozen books in the freed spaces. Only part of the tall bookcase on the right is visible. It holds three horizontal stacks side by side on each shelf. Using the Conley Concept of Horizontal Stacking, the ‘tallest’ shelf space on the tallest bookcase now holds 30 books (previously it held 14.) The skinny section just under the top shelf holds CDs.
The rearrangement of the shelves translates to a clear desk top which was previously covered with stacks of books that had no other spot to call home. But…
I’m wondering if there is a solution for this bulletin board. It has at least four layers of
notes and quotes and cards and other mementos that simply must not be disturbed. I need it where it is (full face in front of my desk) because it inspires me. Okay, I guess
I’ve answered my own question. I suppose it’s true, creative minds are not always tidy.
