Organizing Trims on a Budget

Hi fellow crafters! I am on a mission to organize my craft room. I always seem to get this urge at the beginning of a new year. I thought I would share with you one of my biggest organizing issues and that is my ribbons and trims. They are out of control!!! I searched many different options on organizing this mess, and found some wonderful options. I don't know about you, but I am a crafter on a budget, so I had to keep that in mind when coming up with a plan. This was my basket O'trims… What a mess!

 This was so ridiculous, most of the time they would just get all tangled together and drive me crazy! Here is how I tackled this. I purchased these baskets at Walmart. I then purchased some wooden dowels. You can get them at Walmart, craft stores, or home improvement stores. Look at how organized and pretty they are now. I just love it!

Not all of my ribbon is on spools and I also have a lot of remnants. This how I stored those. I just literally had them crammed in a jar or two, or three. This made it very difficult to find what I needed.

I found this wonderful box filled with holes at the dollar tree! Now I can just spin the box around and see everything I have. This is an amazing improvement and makes crafting easier and more fun!

I love how these new systems are working out for me. Now on to the rest of the craft room!!
