I really wish that I had a craft/school room in my house but for now there just isn’t the room.
I thought, “What am I supposed to with all of our crafts?”
I decided to make some of our kitchen’s butler pantry into a craft pantry. We do most of our crafts in the kitchen anyway. I used an upper and lower cabinet to store all of our stuff. I wasn’t actually sure how I was going to store so many things in such a little space. I thought the only way was to use bins.
I looked around at different stores for the right ones and I finally found some at Wal-Mart. They fit into the cabinets perfectly and they were the cheapest too! (Why do bins cost so much anyway?)
When I was at the store, I purchased a TON of different bins because I wasn’t sure how many and what sizes I would need. I just returned to extra.
After, I fit everything in how I wanted to, I made labels for each bin. I used address labels and love how it turned out!
I love that the kids can see through the bins!
Now everything has a spot and I can just take out one bin at a time.
I even saved a spot for easy access to some books, coloring books and color wonder/explosion books.
This is the lower cabinet. On the top shelf, I have a bin for each child with their own school/activity books. They love having their own bin. At the beginning of the day, I just have to bring out 2 bins and the kids always know where keep their stuff.
I also keep extra supplies in here.
Construction paper and scrapbooking supplies are also kept in here.
Here is how it turned out! I am so happy!!!!
My house did get messy while we were trying to get organized, lol! But the kids loved helping me!
How about you, how do you organize you crafts?
