Good Tuesday folks! I have had a lot of readers ask me what kind of storage I use in my scrap space besides my Expedit so I thought I would share some fun photos today! I am pretty sure I have a touch of O.C.D when it comes to organization and the amount of product I have. Most scrappers are shop-o-holics hoarders, I can proudly say I am not! It almost stresses me out when I have too much stuff. I get overwhelmed and tend to loose track of what I have. So to remain sane I must be uber organized and purge constantly!
So this past weekend I suited up with some Dunkin to purge and re-organize.
She didn't help much, however my laptop battery pack kept her warm
So first one of my favorite storage solutions is my wheeled carts by Iris. I picked two of them up awhile ago from JoAnn's for about 40 bucks on sale. I have each drawer labeled and sorted. Some of the trays are slotted, which makes for easy organizing all the small bits I have.
The other trays are not slotted and only about an inch deep, perfect for inks and stickles.
Now my other storage favorite I picked up at Ikea. It's actually some sort of closet storage I believe, I found it perfect for me. Plus you can add a top to each wire cart/basket thingie so you have extra counter space as well. I have two of these side by side and I use the top to house my very large cutter.
The width of the basket is almost the exact length of a thicker pack score! I have all mine sorted by type. Chipboard, foam, fabric etc separated and divided with labels. Do not judge me on the amount, I make up for it for the lack of paper hoarding I have. A little tip from me to you, once I open the thickers I turn them face to face and slip them back into the packaging rather then struggle with getting them back in the correct way.
In another basket I house all my American Crafts embies. With this system you can buy plastic insert/dividers they make a huge difference.

and finally in the bottom I have my punches. The trays I used here where from an old kitchen organizer my mother in law gave me. I just lucked out that they fit perfect!
Now for paper! I told you previously I actually don't have that much paper. I hoard tools and thickers far more then paper. I use these paper holders by American Crafts to keep everything together. I labeled the outside for whats inside then I made dividers with cardstock and tabs to keep them sorted.
Alright last thing and this isn't uber organized but I just love these boxes!
Have a good day!
