Recycle great packaging. When you get great packaging along with your purchases, keep them. You can reuse them for storage--just like Lola’s cookie tin-turned-sewing box--only cuter!
Group similar items together. Don’t be quick to put pens, pencils, and markers in the same holder. Having separate holders for each type is better to look at. It’s also easier to grab that red fine marker than when it was bunched together with the others.
Choose containers with labels. There are lots of containers in various shapes and sizes that are available in many stores. The ones with label holders are especially worth it!
Dedicate a closet or a corner of your room for your supplies. Crafting is easier when you have everything you need in one place.
Storage Technique: Special Order Customize shelving systems according to your needs. Here, scrapbook papers stacked in an orderly fashion using adjustable shelves that fit their width.
Storage Technique: Lightning Rods Store ribbon or twine spools on closet rods. This way, you’ll easily find the ribbon you need at just a glance.

Real Tip: Don't be in a rush to buy supplies. Start with the essentials, then add art supplies as you go.
