Tips in Organizing Your Craft Supplies

re you one of those people who have a lot of craft supplies such as paste, scissors, markers, and pencils in your area? Are you having troubles organizing them? Then you might want to start sorting your things so you can make better use of them. Here are sure-fire ways of organizing your craft supplies.

First, collect all the craft supplies that you have. You can start finding your stuff stored in your room, before going to other places which you may have kept them such as the stock room. This is probably the most important part, since you may get frustrated with the time you will have to spend in looking for your craft supplies. But keep your poise. Give yourself enough time to look for your things. You can spend an hour or so for this, but the point is that you have to gather everything material you have.

After you have gathered your things, throw away the things you don’t need. Dried up glues and watercolor, or tiny scraps are some of the things you may throw away. Keep only those things you can still use.

Then sort the things you have gathered into smaller groups. It would be easier for you to sort the items according to their type- meaning glue sticks, paste, and scissors can be kept in one jar, while decorative things like stickers and watercolors can be kept together. You can also keep things according to how you use them.

Decide where you will keep your craft supplies. Ideally, you should keep your supplies in a place where you usually do your activity. If you like to knit while watching TV, you may keep your knitting items in a basket and store it in you sofa in front of the TV. If you prefer to paint in your room, your painting materials should be kept in your drawer inside your place.

If you have a lot of small items like buttons and beads, then you might want to keep them together in a tackle box which has several compartments where you can store your items. The tackle box should also closed tightly so there would be no spilling of items. You may also store your crafts in a purse especially the knitting materials so you can do your thing even if you are on the go. If you have paper or similar materials, you can use a filing system to store them. Have them stand on a drawer so you can easily sort them and glance at what you need.

Once you have stored your craft supplies, seal every container and label them properly. You can even list down everything that is inside the container so you will know where to find a certain item whenever you need them.
