04 Feb Getting organised: Arts and Craft supplies
Todays ‘Getting Organised’ post is looking at craft supplies. While it’s aimed at getting your children’s arts and craft supplies in a manageable and more importantly; a usable state, the tips here can be applied to adults craft supplies storage and organisation too.
The main focus of this post is on reusing supplies that you may already have, upcycling household items that you are not using or that you can source cheaply to create imaginative, cost friendly space and places to storage all your crafting materials.
This would be super easy and cheap to do, you can pick up food storage containers nearly anywhere. You could even make some cute chalkboard labels to decorate them with. Here is a tutorial on making chalkboard labels

Until next time peeps, happy organising.
