Tacke it Tuesday

Yet another week and another Tackle it Tuesday over at 5 Minutes for Mom. This weeks Tackle it Tuesday I decided it was time to organize my craft supplies. Inspired by a post at Comical Coupon Cents about her friends Scrapbook closet I got busy.........
I use to Keep all my craft supplies and gift wrap in our tiny hall closet. I had a Large Rubbermaid Drawer set that at one point was somewhat organized but over the years has gotten out of control. My first step was to pull all my craft stuff out of the closet.....
Then I had to sort threw all the stuff, I had not realized the amount of Craft supplies I had acquired until I started going threw it all. Not being able to clearly see my supplies each time I started a new project I would buy the same stuff over and over again. Now that I am organized I can see what I have and where everything is. I am super excited about the way it turned out..... I purchased this book shelf at Walmart for only $27. The Storage bins were 2/$11 at Target and all the other organizing tools were $3 or less at Target.

I saw her post and I was inspired too. Maybe after I finish my scrapbooking. Your craft place looks beautiful and just begs you to be creative! Way to go!

Um, I need to do this. Recently wrapped a b-day gift in Santa paper. Everyone thought it was hilarious! But, I really should be more organized! :)
