Are you buying items over and over, that you already have but can't find?
Paper crafting, especially scrapbooking and card making are two crafts that involve a lot of stuff.
And when you have a lot of stuff, it's easy for it to get out of control.
Over the years, I have found some ideas that worked really well and some that worked --not so well (I"ll save that for another post)
Here are my Top Three Organizing Tips to kick off my new weekly blog post--Tuesday Tips
#3. Stamp Storage
--be creative, I use my stamps a lot, so I want them to be accessible
solution Ikea GNEDBY Shelving unit, was the perfect solution for me.
These shelves are adjustable, and affordable. Plus you can always add another shelf and another and another...
Downfall, you have to get down on your knees to reach the bottom shelves.
Which was fine 10 years ago, but now that I've crossed the 50+ hill, it's not so easy.
So I turned mine on it's side and put it on a 6' long table, and then because I have a lot of stamps I bought two more and stacked them on top of the first one..
And Voila!! Perfect stamp storage.
(note: when you turn these units on their side, you have to nail the shelves in to form the dividers. I just used finishing nails and it has worked quite well)
Labels are a simple, yet super way to keep your stuff organized, especially your stamps.
I use broad categories, family, boys, girls, baby, birthday, Christmas, etc.
This way I don't have to be too particular about where I put the stamp, so long as it's in the right cubby.
Start Clean, Finish Clean
