For my organizing project, I just used baskets and containers that I already had. I really didn't have to go out and buy anything. Before we moved here, I bought cubicles, drawers and a cupboard that my husband put together for me.
This shows my work area, which is way more functional than what I had before. I keep the paper that I use the most under the table in Crop In Style Paper Takers categorized by color and the patterned paper by manufacturer. In order to control my scraps, I'm only going to keep them if they are big enough to use. No more saving tiny little pieces!
This shows the wall where the cubicles are set up. I have labeled all my containers so I know what's in them. In the cupboard I store wooden stamps, clear stamps and other products that are within easy reach. The drawers hold punches and inks. I also keep a basket of clear stamps in one of the cubicles along with my scrub pad and cleaner.
This side holds scrapbook items along with other items.
I bought this ribbon storage rack from a vendor at the Saynor Stampede. The boxes on top had been used before. I also have many loose pieces of one yard ribbon. Not wanting to hang them all, I wrapped them around pieces of cardboard and store them in a basket on the table.
I really like this Clip It Up by Simply Renee. It holds a lot of products within easy reach.
Buttons are one of my favorite embellishments! I've sorted them by color and store them in 4-ounce jars.
I'm also fortunate enough to have a closet in this room for additional storage. Inside, I have a table that fit my paper trays and a cabinet that holds all my Sizzix dies. This works great for storage of everything I don't use on an everyday basis.
It's nice to start the new year off with a clean slate. This project was long overdue and alot of work, but it was well worth it.
Now I'm off to do a few other organizing projects that have been bugging me for months....
