Organization Challenge Week 1 – Space Audit

Find out more about Week 1 here: http://wookiemouse.blogspot.com/2009/05/organization-challenge-week-one-space.html

What works? What doesn’t work?

What doesn’t work? 

– I have to sit on the floor to craft because my desk is being used as storage:

 

– My trash was too far away when I started crafting (which would make clean-up a pain in the eye)

– I don’t have a place for my scraps?!

– Color ink pens not accessible, so I just went with the default black.

– Pages in progress (No place to store)

– Two large bins that need to be cleaned out, plus the storage closet (which is huge) needs to be cleaned out so that I can add more shelving in there.

– My embellishments need a home (they currently live in a Victoria’s Secret duffel bag)

– My journal cards/labels need a home (they currently live in a ziplock bag)

– My ribbon needs a home

What does work?

– My card stock display. It’s easily accessible and I use it a lot.

  My toolbox is great. Everything including my Crop-A-Dile, main journaling pens & scissors fit. Plus it’s portable.

– My project boxes. I basically have one for each major/long term project I have going on. I have a baby boy box & a baby girl box (I make a lot of gift albums), plus one for my home album (which I’m constantly working on) and a few others. These are also great because I can easily grab a few if I’m going to a crop and everything I need is already there.

– I created this solution today for my photos. I like for all of my “loose” photos to be stored together. I found an empty container and decided to use that.

I’m also going to run out of space very soon for my albums upstairs so I must find a new home for them somewhere. I do like to have them on display so maybe I can find some space in the living room or basement?

See you next week for week 2 where we get to brainstorm!!!!

    I found your post in twopeas about starting the WookieMouse challenge. It is very much worth the time. I found a couple of ideas on Pinterest for album display. Here’s the link to my board with them. http://pinterest.com/eclecticstuff2/scrappy-storage/
    My personal tip is to look outside the crafty box for solutions. Have fun!

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by and for sharing your pin board with me!!! Appreciate it!
