Storage in my room...

As scrapbookers and paper crafters, we love to collect and in some cases, gasp, "hoard" our supplies! How do you manage to keep it all together and organized? Today I'll be sharing some ways that I personally organize things in my scrapbook room. I spent about a week this past summer getting things really organized so I could easily locate what I needed, while keeping things pretty and on a budget.

The photo above shows how I organize many of my rub-ons, stamps, alphabets, punches, etc. My Honeybee built the bottom white shelf for me several years ago. The three white shelves on the top came from Target and were about $15 each. Notice I use many different little bins to store items in.

I bought several of these bins for $1 to hold stamps, punches, rub-ons, alphabets, chipboard, 8x8 paper pads, etc. Notice in the photo of the white shelves that I finished each off with a bow and labeled with tags.

I picked up two of these lime green bins at Wal-Mart for like 4 bucks. I desperately needed to find a way to keep scraps of solid and patterned papers together. I have one for each....
Laurel Seabrook gave me the idea to use gallon sized bags to sort my solid and patterned papers. Here is a peek at what is inside the green bin....

I have several of these little shoebox drawers that I picked up at the dollar store for around 6 bucks. I have them labeled with the contents.


This one holds all of my girly girl stuff.

This is where I store all of my acrylic Close to My Heart stamps. I picked this three drawer storage shelf up at the dollar store for $14. It is perfect for holding my acrylics.

I cut up one of my CTMH shipping boxes to create dividers in the drawers and have my stamps organized by kids, flowers, alphas, holidays, sentiments, and cards. Works perfectly!!!
And finally, I absolutely love my Cropper Hopper vertical paper storage. I have six on the lower shelf next to my scrap desk. I have these papers separated by manufacturer. The green box is another $4 find from my local dollar store. It kind of holds a hodge podge of odds and ends papers.

Well, there you have it, a quick peek into some of my storage solutions in my scrap room.
If you have some fun ways to organize and store your things, please share a link in the comments below. I'd love to feature you over at Practical Scrappers!
