…there are many ways to organize your scrapbooking space. Here are a few of the very affordable items I use to store my scrap stash, all of which you can purchase online or at your local stores.

For stamping storage I currently use small tapered bins from Target.com, available for around $7.

To organize my ink pads I use an old cassette tape holder. Sometimes you can pick these up at yard sales or thrift shops, but you can also find them new and unfinished at Kingdom.com for about $20.

My biggest storage issue used to be how to contain all the odds and ends that didn’t have time. Once I found this super cute colander in the dollar spot at Target, my problem was solved! For just $1 or $2, it was a great buy.

I am a very visual person and I need to see what I have. This great canister from Hobby Lobby was just $5 and it lets me see all my Stickles glitter glue at once without taking up much space at all.

And finally, here’s a great solution for corralling your pens and markers. This is a CD crate I found in the clearance section at JoAnn. These unfinished wooden crates are easy to customize and only cost approximately $6 apiece, but any CD crate would do wonderfully.

  1. What great ideas. I will use some of them. Thanks.

  2. Brenda B says:

    These are wonderful ideas for organization. Thanks so much.

  3. Tracy Johnson says:

    Target Archer Farms product containers are great to use for scrapbook supplies. They have clear plastic containers for almonds and other like snacks, and glass ones for spices. After I use the product I clean out the container, peel off the label and there ya go. I love to use the ones from the cinnamon or vanilla beans because they still smell great for months.

    I love the idea about the cassette holders. I’m really starting to like stamping and my stamp pad collection is growing.

  6. Sue says:

    Lots of great ideas. It always pays to check the ‘clearance aisle or bin’ at most stores.
