We could all use some help organizing our lives especially if we are a craft person or have a family. My home is no different than most... I have been working on organizing things so they are easily accessible.
Buying things and storing them is no benefit if you can not find what you are looking for when you need it. I have made purchases on sale, had no place for storing them and then I tuck the items somewhere to be found later... usually after I have repurchased or the event has gone buy.
It is too bad we can not all have a space like this to store our supplies and excess goods...
But as we do not - we need to use different options to help us be better organized.
Here are a few wonderful ideas I found on Pinterest - this site has so many great ideas I am sure you will find something for you there too.
Organizing my fabrics is very important to me... I have a small sewing room and have to be able to locate and see what I have on hand... I use this system as well as file boxes to store my fabrics:
I love using the see through totes... just at a glace I can tell what fabrics are in there.
These covered totes are wonderful as they keep your fabric clean fresh and neat for years.
What a neat way to store your batteries... right at your fingertips you know what you have and what you need to replenish:
Dollarstore containers are perfect for this.... I love mine.
Keeping the receipts and warranties for your new items is so important.... and you need a neat filing system that is easy and at your fingertips... also found this on Pinterest:
Here are a few ideas that I want for my kitchen and sewing room... they are on my wish list:
What a great use of wasted space... my handyman is going to install these for me when he gets the chance.
These kick drawers are just the right size for pizza pans, muffin pans, broiler pans, etc!
This will make my life so much easier in my sewing room... everything at my fingertips!
What do you have that makes your space more user friendly?
