    My general thought is to group them into one place and be done with it: casework-div 12, exterior trim-div 7, metal studs-div 9 etc, but I can easily see the argument from the pedantic side of things.
    I definitely just put them in one place and that's it. People eventually learn where they are. It's no drama.

    Kind of what I was thinking but I'm a sucker for precedent if available
