Organizing Sewing Supplies with Scrapbooking Storage

Organizing things makes me really happy. I remember watching HGTV years ago and seeing someone whose job title was Professional Organizer. I thought that was about the coolest thing ever. Seriously, getting paid to go nuts in the Container Store and then sorting someone else’s stuff to take it from messy to beautiful? What could be better?

The scrapbooking section of the craft store is a great place for organizing supplies for your sewing space. It makes sense – scrapbookers have lots of little bits and bobbles to keep track of.

This is a photo storage box. The box holds 16 individual boxes that are designed to hold 4×6″ photos. It has a handle so it’s easy to transport, and it closes securely.
Here’s a picture of it open, it’s a little easier to see the slots that the smaller boxes sit in.

My plan for these was to store my size tags and decorative tags in them. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I had extra spots once I had put the tags in.

Here’s a close up of one of the small boxes open so you can get a better idea of the depth. The are about an inch deep. I used some of the boxes for magnetic snaps, key fob parts, boxer elastic, webbing…

These would also be great for buttons and snaps.

Organizing seems to be a love it or loathe it kind of thing. Where do you fall?
