3 Easy Steps to Organizing Your Crafts

1.  Know what you have

Round up all those supplies!  You can’t know what you have (or how to organize it) unless you have it all together.  It’s a good ideas to do a “round up” about every 6 months; things get spread out as you work and new purchases don’t always get put away where they need to go. Remember to keep tools used for certain activities together.

Here Tricia from Craft Addict keeps all of her beading supplies and tools together.

3.  Repurpose – Reuse

Look around at what you already have and use it to help organize your crafts. You can be organized with out spending lots of money on organization products. Here are just a few ideas!

3.  Make it accessible

Look at how things are stored in your craft room/area. Do you have to move 3 boxes just to get to something?  That makes putting things away more difficult too.  Having extra shelves and drawers make for easier access. easier access also means you are more likely to put it away.  Also, remember to keep the tools used most frequently within easy reach.  Here are more clever craft organization ideas:

Monica at CraftyNest shares how she took a found piece of railing and transformed it into this wall-mounted craft organizer. She even shows you how she did it!  Also notice the rolling toolbox – it’s not just for boys anymore!
