I am so happy to welcome back XOXORGANIZING for another blog post on Craft Room Organization! The tips that their owner, Sara Barba, offers are so smart and easy to implement! Today she provide an approach to "managing your crafty stash".
6-Month Rule for Crafty Gals
We’re constantly bringing in new craft items into our lives- more buttons, more embellishments- do we ever not love anything crafty?. How can we possibly manage not to be buried under our craft supplies? The answer is the 6-month rule. Follow these rules to be the most organizer crafter you know:
1. Every 6 months, I want you to go through your craft drawers, boxes and bins. Take a look to see what you have and what more you really want.
2. If you make a squishy face when you come across a crafty item, I want you to think about whether or not you'll still use that item. A good indicator of future behavior is past behavior, so ask yourself, “When was the last time I crafted with this?”
3. If you decide you won’t be using a craft item, I want you to immediately put it in a donate box (or toss it if it’s totally unusable by someone else.) Get the item out of your life within a week (two weeks maximum).
4. After you decide which unwanted items are to be donated/tossed, I want you to go back and evaluate each drawer, box and bin to make sure your crafts are organized by like categories.
Make sure you repeat these steps every 6 months.
