With a burst of creative energy came the need to organize all my craft supplies. I don’t have a craft room but with 2 little ones I can’t really hang out in a room that’s all my own anyway. Mr. “I bet that tastes good” would have a field day in a craft room swallowing buttons and chewing ribbon. Oh Boy! Pun intended.
As always I wanted to organize without purchasing new storage containers and without sending tons of perfectly usable containers to a landfill. I
believe know that every little bit helps. I have a bag next to our recycling box where I throw random containers that I think I might be able to repurpose. I have been intentionally saving containers with craft supplies in mind. Here are some of my choices:
What I did: I glued ribbon around the top of the containers I chose to use for a little “pretty”. I sorted items into like categories and ta dah! That’s it! $0.00 spent, 0 new items purchased, 13 containers saved from landfill, and an Organized Craft Area. I have an adhesive hook to attach to the side of the cabinet. I will hang an empty bag there to use when I need to craft in a different location. I will fill the bag with what I need from the cabinet and go! Oh and the cabinet I used once held shirts and such in our bedroom. With our simplification of all “things” I was able to free this up for my crafts. Yeah!
