Operation Organization

Before

After


As you can tell from the Before picture, the situation was critical. I could never find anything and was not very productive with the mess at this level. What better time to do a craft space makeover, while I am waiting for all of the new Stampin' Up goodies coming in July. I began by removing everything from the table, getting a new cloth, this will hide the storage bins underneath and keep the area brighter. I organized the ink pads, separating the current from the retired. As you can tell I save them all (back to Mauve Mist and Mint Melody). I dumped all of my SU buttons into this pretty crystal jar. I got a new storage cubicle at Michael's with my 50% off coupon. I plan to get more of these storage solutions as I get more coupons and will continue refining the organization even more.
Just take a small baby step and start with one small area at a time and you will eventually get it nice and neat. The real challenge will be keeping it that way!
