Getting organized

I've been in a downsizing/purging/get organized mood lately.

I'm pretty sure the reason my mojo's been M.I.A for so long is that I get overwhelmed by the amount of stuff I have.

It's just too much.

So, in that spirit, here are some of the things I do to keep my things organized and at hand, so I actually see and use them...

This is an oldie but goodie. The Clip it Up. I'd get two more if I had the space for them. They are life savers.




This is another one of those brilliant buys that I truly love. Making Memories desktop carousel.



Lots of bins to keep my punches handy but contained. From Container Store ad Target.



I made an index of all my punches so I don't have to go look for them in my bins and drawers.
Size is written on top of each image.




My beautiful stamp index. A 3 ring binder where I have stamped the images of every single stamp I have. This way I just have to go through the index instead of through every huge stamp binder to know what I have.



I got this ink pad storage thingy from ebay. I. LOVE. IT. I am actually stamping more since they are right there and I can see the colors I have.
This is another one of those things I plan on getting multiples of when space permits.


Here I cut all the shapes of Nestabilities I have and attached them to a loose leaf ring. Another way to keep them at hand and quickly know what I have in order to use, use, use them!!!

The actual dies are stored in Quickutz's magnetic books.


That's it!

What do you do to keep your stash in order? Share.

Okay, I'm loving your organization, think I might use a couple of them. FYI...Hobby Lobby is selling the Spellbinders now, and there on sale this week.

whoa! it looks like something out of a magazine!

the 3-ring stamp binder...where do the stamps go? are those transparencies that you've stamped on and you stick them right over the image?
