Since moving to the House on Hospital Hill everything has just been organized in “survival mode.” Brother P-Touch invited me to try my hand at some organization projects and so I recently re-organized all my craft and art supplies. Here’s my little animated gif of the process for my supply drawers…Max was so interested in what I was doing:
Organizing Art Supplies
There was a method to my madness: if I use something at least monthly it can stay in my flat file drawers, otherwise iot’s either banished permanently or to the basement. I basically pulled everything out first, sorted and then labeled and put things back in. I’m so organized now that I ended up with empty drawers to fill up in the future:
Things that don’t fit into the flat file drawers usually fit into these scrapbook boxes. It’s easy to distinguish what is in each one when they are labeled correctly:
The boxes are also great for organizing all the artwork and items Boo brings home from school. Organized by year:
As the years go by I usually revisit the boxes and things I thought were important become not-so-significant-anymore. What was maybe once three boxes can now be fit into one and then I can use the old boxes for new organization because the labels are easily removed:
And when I get to labeling I just can’t stop. We have remotes for all the fans and lights in the house and I label each one to keep them straight:
I love all the ideas that are being added to Brother’s “Label It” Pinterest board this week. Make sure to check it out to see some great organization and labeling ideas!
