Help!! I started scrapbooking last year and now my stuff is everywhere. I have 5 boxes of things I aquired to scrap with and it's totally unorganized. Can someone provide me with cheap ideals for organizing all this mess ? Thanks!!!

That's a tough one unless you buy one of those expensive organizers. I have two sets of plastic file drawers (like you can buy at Walmart in Kimball or in Staples online (they will deliver to Whitwell free of charge!) Each of mine has 6 drawers about 3-4" deep, but you can buy fewer bigger drawers or whatever. That way I can divide my fancy scissors into one drawer, stamping supplies in another, scrap paper in one drawer, etc. For paper and cardstock (especially 12x12) you can just use a cardboard box and some homemade cardboard dividers to divide colors or whatever.

I think that's what I'll probably end up doing. We are suppose to move in the next 3 months so I was hoping to find some small ways to organize until the move. I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't exist. Thanks, for the help though. How long have you been scrapbooking ? Do you do it often ?

I can not for the life of me remember what the infomercial was but they had clear boxes that attached to each other and if you took one out of the middle they did not fall. Some kind of storage name maybe ahhhh sorry maybe someone knows what im talking about . I just saw it only once this week. Good luck :)

all of my scrapbook stuff is just strung all over the place and i do not know a good way to organize them either my mother uses all different kinds of tuffer wear and rubber maid containers but then she has a bunch of stuff piled up in the containers and she does not know what is in what container so i do not really like her way of organizing things the best thing i can think of to use is the stackable plastic boxes

I have the same issue with my purse packs. I just went to walmart and bought those white 3 draw clear things. They help me out a lot. Now I just need to get a few more. I will wait for a sale.
