Let's face it.
I love to organize, but let's face it... I'm a mess. I enjoy a good sale and will purchase anything if it is a good deal. So after having to go through my stuff a million times I have come to the conclusion...
I must like what my studio looks like, this way I will want to show it off. ie-clean it up more often. So I am really evaluating what I need, what I use and what is the best organizing tool (not necessarily the best deal) to contain my supplies. Well if the first part of recovery is admitting you have a problem I am on step three or four. I am taking action. My first mission was paper scraps. I color coordinate my paper so I can find it quickly- solid, cardstock and patterned of the same color go in the same bin. I also keep a bin of stamped images (wishes, mess ups- to use to make a quick card). My problem was containing it. I found some great bins for 100 yen (one dollar) and I had to open and close them to put paper away. Too much work (I know I am lazy) so I found these great little zipper bins at Ikea for 4.99 (the real ones I wanted were from Hobby Lobby and 20.00) So I still went the cheaper route but I am happy. Scraps are where I can find them now. Here's to you getting your life organized too!
