Welcome to the final segment of the Out of the Box Organization! So far, we've talked about how to get inspired by baking, vintage, and office supplies to set up your scrap space and store your supplies. Today, we're going to cover how to match storage options to your own organization style.
Some of you out there are "closed container" organizers. You know the ones--they like things out of sight and tucked away into drawers so when they look around, they have a clean slate to work with. If you fit this style, you're going to want clean, closed containers to store your supplies, from boxes to tins to drawer sets.
Some of the items from our blog week fit this image:
My friend Celeste's scraproom uses closed storage very effectively. Take a look:
Celeste's scraproom is beautifully decorated (love that print!) and very organized, with drawers tucking away lots of supplies. Celeste also has some open storage in the baskets on her desk, to hold certain items she wants to be able to see.
Here's another peek at Celeste's uber-organized desk. I love it!
Here's another glimpse at Celeste's storage. All of the boxes keep the Expedit organized and neat-looking while holding tons of supplies!
In contrast to the closed-container scrappers, some of us need things out in the open to remember to use them! You remember the phrase--"out of sight, out of mind!" If you need to see your items to know you have them, then check out these more open storage possibilities:
My scraproom is all about the open storage.
I love using clear jars to store items.
I store paper and large embellishments in this dresser (Little tip: It's a TV cabinet from Ikea with extra shelves!).
I adore bins like these. I could use them for everything, all the time!
If you check out my beloved Expedit, you can see how open everything is--open bins, my cake plate, etc. Wth its little bitty compartments, the Expedit lends itself very well to either open or closed storage!
Even my tools get the open storage treatment, with a tool caddy!
And there you have it! Whether you're an open or closed storage kind of girl, I hope this blog week inspires you to find some out-of-the-box solutions to your scrap supply organization!
