Where did I put that bleepin' purse.

(or earwires, or black velvet)

and my stuff is organized.

Commisserate with me... don't you hate it when you misplace a supply right in the middle of a project?!

I do the "I'll put this in a safe place" bit...and then never manage to find it again...

I'm a disaster, actually, when it comes to being organised.

(although I rather more diplomatically call it "organised chaos") Tongue

Every. Damn. Day!!! I think the cats move my pens, and pliers, and so on. About the only tools I don't lose are my knitting needles, because they are attached! (and I am sure I'm going to have to eat those words sooner or later...).

I seriously do this every 5 minutes when I'm crafting (or doing anything else, now that I think about it...).
Sometimes I wonder how much I could accomplish if I didn't spend half my time looking--and looking again, and looking again--for the scissors I just set down 2 seconds ago.

I was always losing my knitting loom hook.  Always.  So I started holding it in my mouth while wrapping the pegs.  Sure enough, many times when I've done this I've frantically dug through my surroundings looking for it, all the while having it hanging from my lips.


And scissors!  It doesn't take me as long to find those when I lose them because I'm almost always sitting on them, so that's the first place I look now.  Wink

Um, yeah.

When I crochet I periodically lose a hook which isn't too big of a deal because I have plenty so I just go get one of another size until the first on turns up.

However, I have limited knitting needles and it's really annoying to lose just one in the middle of a project. Sigh, my couch thinks their tasty.

I'd like to add to that it's partner annoyance:
buying something you already had but forgot about. 
How many times have I bought something for some project only to find a duplicate in my stash already... hahahaha.
