So I'm not much of a crafter. But every so often I get a brainstorm for a new project, or I need a homemade gift, and then I have to go digging through legions of cardboard boxes to find the materials I need. Then after I'm done with the project, I usually just take everything I used and dump them all back into one of the boxes. It's utter chaos. I'd love to find some way to organize the supplies I have so that I don't have to do that every time! Or worse, forget what I have or fail to find it, and go buy more ...
The worst part is, I tend to collect hand-me-down or garage-sale craft supplies, which means I have piles of things I've never used but might someday. It's the only category of item that I hesitate to declutter, which is OK, I suppose, but I really need a way to make my stash more usable.
So what do you do to keep your craft things organized? Any brilliant ideas I can borrow?
For what it's worth, we live in a very small house, so there's no way to take over a room in the house or a closet or something. I'm basically stuck with basement or attic for storage.
