Got beads? How about stuff? I’m sure you do. As crafter we tend to pick up little shiny trinkets here and there and file them away. This week I tackled my bins of beads and organized and consolidated the collection to this:
Not bad considering how it looked when I started. I had the above containers as well as another tool box, locker bin, and a bunch of small clamshell boxes. It was madness I tell you! I did not get rid of any of my jewelery supplies, instead I stored them smarter. Look how much stuff fits in these containers:
Instead of explain how I sorted everything I made a 5 minute video. The best feature about this system is that I can fit it in a 18 gallon tote (albeit a heavy one!) so I can cart all of my supplies to a class or upstairs to bead in front of the TV rather than in my unheated studio (I suffer for my art LOL!) Take a look:
If you have any question just leave a comment and I will get back to you. You might have different storage need but I think that keeping like items together is your best bet.
Update on the coffee pot situation, I officially threw the old pot away and went to Target and bought the cheapest one I could find. It is a cute little 5 cupper and I think it looks adorable next to my espresso machine:
Yay! I have proper coffee again! My loved ones are so relieved. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
