Woot-woot….I know that you all like when I post scoop on some organization tips. Please remember, we all have different ways to do things….some work for us…some don't! I think that we all have tried and tried many different ways of doing things and today ~ I wanted to give you a glimpse of some storage ideas that work for me!
I have a lot for you today so grab that cup of coffee…and get ready to be inspired and then get ready to take advantage of the clearance items and read the scoop for taking advantage of Paper Pumpkin being 50% off for your 1st 2 months! TODAY IS THE LAST DAY!
LET'S GET ORGANIZED!!!
I know…I know – I am very "TYPE A" – always have been….always will be! I am a firm believer that when we are organizer not only are we happier, but we are more productive! (I can hear Chris R right now laughing!!!!)
I have shared with you before that I use organizational products from Stamp-n-Storage. I realize that the products are an investment but I will say I have purchased bit by bit and love each and every product I have! Watch the "Crafted Spaces" episodes…and you will drool….there are some amazing craft rooms….(Mary Fish's is on there and it is just gorgeous)!
With Back to School in full swing, now is the perfect time to buy these plastic folders! I cut them to fit inside and in between the sections that I categorized. I use the Brothers P-Touch Label Maker, not only is it easy to use…it is a "must have" that you will use all over your home. (Amazon has the best prices and also for the tape refills)
Moving on…here is another goodie that was in Walmart – it is just a plastic cube that probably get purchased a bunch for kids going back to college. They came in all sorts of colors and I think it was around $2.50! I have really had a hard time finding something to store my paper stack in….they were either too wide or the sides were too short and the paper would flop!
I know that it might not be the prettiest – but it sure does do the trick! I like to take the paper out of the stacks it comes in as I find that as you use the paper, the glue that holds it together gets icky and my paper gets all messed up and not orderly (I know….type A kicking in) and I also like to cut my DSP Stacks into 6 X 6 squares as it is rare that I need a cut that is longer than 6" and I find it just easier for me!
LAST DAY FOR 50% OFF
The best phrase I can give to you about the Paper Pumpkin program is…."You've come a long way baby"! I have been receiving this monthly kits since they started several years ago and WOW – Stampin' Up! has really….REALLY put a lot into the marketing, the product and the quality!
Today is the last day that you can take advantage of becoming a Paper Pumpkin Person….(I like that a PPP'er). It is for NEW members…..so if you have been a member in the past, you will not be able to take advantage of it…BUT…..I am sure your husband would like to be "the person" (ha-ha!!!!) It just cannot be in your name if you were part of the program in the past!
In July I shared with you the kit….I LOVED it and was hoping that they would offer the refills…and lucky me they did and I took full advantage of it and ordered (4) of them! Look below how I changed it up a bit….they really are fun kits and you really have nothing to lose.
Just like we do with any cards/projects that we make, it is super fun to change things up a bit and here you can see that I put a fun sentiment in the cup and popped some stars with a small bit of bling to make it fun!
Did you see the Bakers Twine? Yep, this is the basic gray and that is in the clearance rack for just $1.19. You know how I feel about Bakers Twine – LOVE IT and yep….I will take advantage of goodies in the clearance rack – I love a deal as much as you do…..but I will even get it at a lower price with my discount (hint-hint…how about becoming a hobby demonstrator )
I even had to have fun with the envelope; you know me…I can't resist as I love my envelopes! Bakers Twine really does make a fun look that is super easy and super effective!
Now here is another Organizational Tool that I love to use….the Wide Stamp Cases…I always have a stash of these to make life easier! You can use them over and over and they snap together like a charm!
It is just like our stamp cases and you can see that I just slide the paper in the front and then stashed the stamp set in the back! Easy, Fast….DONE!
