A few weekends ago, I decided it was time get organized and to purge scrapbooking supplies I knew I wasn’t going to use . I’d been toying with the idea of a few different organizational methods for the last couple of years, but hadn’t stuck with one. After a couple weeks with the new system in place, though, I think this one is going to stick!
The process I used is pretty simple, and it would be easy to adapt it to fit your own organizational needs.
1. Sort all supplies into piles to keep or toss. As I sorted, I made several different keep piles based on category of supply (for example: letters, stickers, stamping supplies, embellishments, rub-ons, small tools, etc.)
2. Set the toss piles aside to sell at a garage sale, share with crafty friends, or donate.
3. Place each category of supply in a clear tote so you can easily see what is inside. I bought a couple different sizes of Sterilite Latching Boxes (below) from Target when they were on sale, which made for an inexpensive solution.
The only supply I don’t have in the clear boxes is paper, which I keep in a rolling tote. It’s not as visible as my other supplies, but given my limited scrapbook storage space, I’m ok with that.
How do you organize your supplies? I’d love to hear any tips or tricks you have!
