52 Paper Crafting Organization Tips – Week 11
Welcome to Week #11 of my 52 Paper Crafting Organization Tips and StampinBuds Studio tour. Did you miss last week’s topic? I talked about Paper Envelopes, so be sure to check it out.
Can you believe that I basically found 10 different ways of storing my Paper over the last week? Crazy! So this week I am stepping away from paper storage to show you something completely different. A random way that I’m storing some of my paper crafting cleaners, sprays, foam tapes, and more. So let’s get to it!
Week 11: Stackable Plastic Bins
I ran across this fun storage system several years ago while shopping at The Container Store in Tigard, OR – Stackable Plastic Bins with an optional wall unit!
While I’m not 100% sure if The Container Store still carries the wall unit shown in the photo, the plastic bins are still a popular item and very useful for storing odds and ends.
The Plastic Bins I’m using in the photo measure 4-1/8″ x 7-3/8″ x 3″ h. However, there are a few different size bins available for all of your storage needs. I am able to store 20 bins on my wall unit, even though I somehow misplaced one during my 2020 move. I’ll find it someday, I hope!
What if the wall unit is no longer available? It shouldn’t really be a problem because these bins are stackable! You could sit a few on your workspace desk to store things like extra adhesive, sandpaper, and other items you use frequently. Or perhaps you could sit some next to a desktop computer to store things like paperclips, erasers, tapes, etc. You could even invest in the larger bins for storing things like hole punches, etc.
As for the labels, I simply cut a 3″ x 1″ piece of cardstock and add a 2.75″ x .75″ pieces on top of it. I use to stamp my labels with a CTMH Alphabet Stamp but eventually changed it over to just writing with a sharpie. It’s just easier. I do know that you can purchase some label pieces from The Container Store but I chose to save a little bit of money by using cardstock already in my stash. Easy Peasy!
