My office wears many hats. It is home to all of my yarn and needles, my sewing machine and fabric, receipts, makeup collection, and a ton of random craft supplies. I would have to say this project was only partially successful since I didn’t really set aside enough time to really work on it. I would have liked to gets some more organizers for my drawers but such is life. I will consider it a work in progress.
So what I did to help get it somewhat under control.
1. A letter sorter doubled as storage for my eye shadow palettes. I got some acrylic organizers for my face and eye products. I found them at Marshall’s and one at Ross while I was in North Carolina.
3. Now the dreaded receipts, I really wanted to shred and get rid of everything that was over a year old. I did keep any major purchase receipts, home improvement receipts, and any condo specific documents. I think I did pretty well getting rid of a lot. I shredded and recycled what I could.
4. After my Nana passed a few years ago my cousins and Aunt helped my other Aunt Karen go through her knitting items and we each got to take some home. I was the only one who was a major knitter while the others crochet so I go a majority of the needles. I donated some to the local Council on Aging but kept a lot too. I was storing them in a pretty box, but wanted a few on display. I placed them in a nice yellow pitcher and held them in place with spare fabric. I also sorted the yarns by type and placed in fabric bins that are in my bookcase, I just need to label them, my handwriting is messy so I want to print them.
While I still have some drawers to go through I think this was a really good start. Now I just need to make some projects so I can really downsize my yarn and fabric stash.
