Organizing your books

Books should be stored in bookcases. Store them, sorted alphabetically by genre, with the spine of the book against the edge of the book shelf. This will keep dust from landing on the shelf edge. Donate any books you no longer want to charity (or put them into the Cheapskates Book Club) so that others can enjoy them.


  1. Something else you can do to prevent those pesky insects from taking up residence in your books - wipe over the shelves with lavender oil, allow it to dry and put the books back. I do this yearly and have had no issues with insects in the books.

  2. I spray the shelves lightly with Eucalyptus oil to keep any 'nasties' at bay, and put a small piece of wood in behind the books to prevent them from moving back in the shelf all the time.
