Make it work Wednesday #6

Can you believe that this is my 6th Make it work Wednesday already? I wanted to share my hardware/embellishment storage with you this week. I used to have the stack n store containers in the plastic holders that SU! sold. They stand on their own or can be hung on the wall. I now have 8 of them to get rid of. They hold 6 large containers or 12 small ones, but just took up too much room for how much they held.


So, I took all of my containers and put them in a drawer in my roll top desk. The drawer holds 38 large containers and 20 small. I have them labeled so I can find what I am looking for quickly.


But not all my embellishments are in these containers. some won't fit and I don't have enough containers. That's where these index boxes from the Dollar spot at Target come in and also some small storage boxes. They work perfectly on my Clip it Up!, you wouldn't believe how much you can hang on this thing!


I also have 4 metal containers with the small watchmaker tins that contain more stuff.


Look what arrived on my doorstep this afternoon, fun Tim Holtz hdwe. Gotta get organizing I guess!
