Top Craft Room Organization Tips
Let’s talk about my best tips!
1. Have a place for everything.
This is so important. If you don’t have a place where each item officially belongs, then you don’t know where to return it after use. It might sit on a table, in a pile, on the floor, in a box, or it might get shoved somewhere and then you can’t find it. Determine where each item belongs. If you really can’t figure out where to put something, decide if you really need it in your collection. If you need to keep it and aren’t sure where it goes, add it to your ‘junk’…I mean, ‘assorted treasures’ basket, drawer, or shelf.
2. Find A Scrap Organization System That Works For You
This is so very important! When I finally discovered a scrap system that worked for me, it was life changing. I no longer had scraps heaping up in mountains that I didn’t know what to do with! My scrap organization system has two parts. First, I have a drawer where scraps get placed until I have time to organize them further. The second step is that when I do have time to organize them, I sort them by color into the photo organizer shown below.
3. Don’t Skimp When Purchasing Organizers
I know budgets are limited, but if at all possible don’t cut corners when purchasing organizers. These are items you’ll be able to use for your entire crafting life. Being organized saves time and makes your crafting experience SO much more enjoyable. Spend what you’re able to in order to have the setup you want.
