For today's post, I'm going to share with you some really simple, and more importantly, S-U-P-E-R cheap storage solutions for some of your crafting supplies.
Oh Washi Tape, I still haven't used you one bit, but there you sit, so nicely on my shelf! Would you believe I picked up this wooden dowel doohicky thingy at my local Goodwill store? I'm not entirely sure what the original intent for it was, but, it makes an excellent holder for my never-been-used Washi tape!
Bonus: I paid $1.00 for it!
What do do with all those re-inker bottles? Why, an old travel jewelry storage case! It's even double sided, so when I hang it on the wall, I can make use of both sides.
Bonus: I paid $2.00 for it at a yard sale!
Sure, ink pad holders were designed by places like Stamp-N-Storage to hold all your ink pads, but they also can make great organizers for markers and Blendabilities!
Bonus: The first inkpad storage holder I got for FREE at my local Salvation Army when I was dropping off a car full of donations and saw it in the back storage area. The second, I paid good money for, but it really was a good investment!
A DVD storage holder makes the BEST ribbon storage ever. Unlike coat hangers or paper towel racks, you don't have to slide 90 spools of ribbon on and off to get to the color you want in the middle!
Bonus: I paid $5.00 for it at my local Savers discount store!
Never underestimate the value of shoeboxes or crafting storage boxes - available at your local Michael's store. There are so many purposes these boxes can be used for, plus they're decorative and come in all colors and patterns to match your craft space.
They can hold your embossing folders:
Or your punches:
Or you handmade cards! Plus, you can even be S-U-P-E-R organized and arrange them by category!
Bonus: Boxes are usually on sale 5 for $10 at your local craft store.
Another DVD storage rack also serves as a clear stamp holder!
Bonus: FREE from a friend who was downsizing her DVD collection!
Don't be afraid to scour thrift stores, yard sales or your BFF's closet to find some simple and S-U-P-E-R cheap storage ideas for your own space!
