How many times have you taken something apart to fix/paint it only to be confused or missing a screw upon reassembling? I learned this easy organizational tip from my Dad after having a reassembly disaster with a crib. Before taking anything apart gather together a piece of cardboard, some masking tape and a small plastic baggie. Use the cardboard for making notes and pierce holes into it to attach your screws. Arrange the screws from top to bottom in the order they were removed, and tape corresponding washers and bolts next to them. Make notes as to the placement and arrangement if needed. When you go to reassemble just start at the bottom with the last screw and work up. Use the baggie to hold odd pieces or Allen wrenches and tape it to the cardboard. You won't miss a step this way and reassembly will be a breeze!
