Weirkd says : I got this idea from a gal that took a class with me. She had cart on wheels that was made for either scrapbooking or crafts that she got at Michael’s. It had a handle on it with wheels and folded up like a piece of luggage. It had so many compartments in it! It was a great idea!I also like the rolling bins that they also sell at craft stores. You can put labels on the outside of them so you know exactly what is in which drawer without digging threw it all!
Eventually I will have all my cutters in individual Ziplocs with its corresponding veiners and labeled & alphabetized.
I keep my dusts in a small Rubbermade container that is actually made for school supplies like pencils. And you can use the long skinny containers that are made for spaghetti for your floral wires! You can have one for each size if you’d like!
KDweir says: I have a great idea about how to organize everything though. I’m a big fan of the Rubbermaid stuff also. Walmart has great deals on different sized bins with lids. If I ever get around to it, I want to organize my cutters and veiners by putting them in baggies with the label of what they are on them. Then have an A-Z card and have them alphabetized within the container. I also know people that put little pictures on the outsides of the containers or a list in an envelope attached to it so they can pull the list and see whats inside without having to tear through it all.
Also found helpful is a wooden insert that my husband got me from Kohls I believe. It fits inside your drawers and sections off everything for you. Then you can put whatever in each little space. I found this better for my pencil/junk drawer then my cake stuff. The little cubbies is kind of too small for my cake stuff!
Use extra cabinet space (if you have any) to store cake mixes so they don’t take over your pantry.
Try to remember to consolidate colored fondant scraps into one bucket and get rid of extra buckets to save space.
Thanks to all of you who submitted tips; all great ideas!
