Ya'll, I have a decent amount of craft supplies. It grows every year and I have to take change over it. I have a bad problem with just shoving things here and there or cramming one more roll of ribbon into an already stuffed box...anybody with me? So, I decided I needed to figure out ways to consolidate some of those crafty items, separate some things, throw away some things and reconfigure some of my storage spaces to really get a grip.
An easy way to free up a ton of space is to reduce your ribbon storage by simply rolling up the smaller sections and pinning them with a clothespin. I can't tell you how crazy this ribbon disaster was before -its so much better and easier to navigate now - I love this.
Another thing I had to do was to create separate storage places for certain items - like a box for just ribbon, yarn, felt, fabric, paper, etc. I have been shoving these things into a couple of shared boxes for so long - its so nice to actually see what I have and to not have to search and search for something.
I also have smaller bins set aside for office supply items like scissors, glue, tape, paper clips etc. I keep my smaller craft tools in a box together - glue gun, staple gun, etc. and group all of my craft paint brushes in one box.
This is just a little bit of craft supply organization that I'm working on, anybody else have craft organizing tips to share? Share with me!
