I don’t have a craft room, but I do have a craft cabinet in our garage. It’s a great cabinet that holds a lot of my stuff, but like any closet, room or cabinet it can get real messy, real quick.
I always tend to throw extra things in there, not always putting them away neatly. Then I started getting extra craft things from my mom, and it really got messy. In between all of that one of the shelves fell and I had a huge mess.
It was still cold out and since our garage isn’t insulated I didn’t want to clean it then. Then it got to hot and I didn’t want to clean it. lol Then this past Sunday I woke up and thought, I need to clean that this morning, and that’s exactly what I did. It took a while, but not as long as I thought it would.
I think it turned out pretty good. I also had these two bags of yarn in my bedroom closet on the top shelf. I was tired of constantly seeing ugly garbage bags in there so I went to the store and bought a cheap but nice bin. So much better.
The best part of all my organizing is that I found something that I almost bought. It is a simple way to organize your floss for cross stitch projects. I started putting the floss in see thru baggies, very small ones, and I love it. But then I found some baggies in JoAnns that belong to a ‘system’ with two rings and a plastic front and back. I couldn’t find the main part of the system, the rings and plastic binder anywhere except for Hobby Lobby.com. But I had a gift card for JoAnn’s and no extra money to buy them. A bit bummed, I had just given up on it. But as I was organizing things I found this from stuff I had gotten from my mom!
See why it pays to organize? I would have spent extra money for something I already had. Now if I can just remember that and keep my craft cabinet organized, it would help a lot. 😀
