A Pirate's Boo-tea

Good organization is one of the most important elements of living aboard.  With limited space, we need to make good use of every cubic inch, but of equal importance, everything must appear neat and orderly or it can drive a person crazy.  (Or at least it can drive me crazy.)  Feng shui is the only way. 

Last week, I created this hanging box to organize my teas.  Previously, they were all tossed into a hammock (shown in the upper right corner of the photo to right), which not only looked cluttered but was also difficult to reach into. 

My new box is a simple planter box with holes drilled into the ends for 1/2" sisal twine hanging lines. In the future, I'll add a couple lines to the bottom to keep it from swinging while we sail. It looks much better than the hammock and is a lot easier to reach and find what I'm looking for.
