Plastic Bins and Craft Organizing

Blogged under Crafty Products,My College Craft Club by Tammy on Thursday 24 February 2011 at 7:32 am


Since starting my college craft club, I discovered a number of points I hadn’t really thought through that much. One of the biggies is storage for all of the craft supplies. I have my own office, but it’s not that big. It’s fine for one person, but when you add in my L-shaped desk, computer, filing cabinet, a few chairs, and a few book cases, and then try to squeeze in loads of yarn, bags of material, and so on, well, it has gotten to be a pretty tight squeeze in there.

Some teachers just have one small desk with their computers on that, and it makes it more roomy, but when I work I like to spread out. I can’t imagine what I would do with all the paper stuff I have….and I even grade primarily on-line.

Finally, I made a trip to Wal-Mart and loaded up on plastic bins to help me get organized. We have yarn, hooks and needles, jewelry making supplies, and more recently fleece. I also have a miscellaneous assortment of food related items such as plastic cups, spoons, napkins, and plates, since I provide small snacks at each meeting.

I did something similar in my home studio a few years ago, and really, plastic bins are a great way to divide and concur your crafting crap. Now, I just need the time to actually put everything inside the bins!

    Spring must be in the air. I’ve had the urge to reorganize my craft room as well. It’s hard to find the time for it, so I’m doing it little by little.
