This may seem like a dumb question, but you all seem so creative. What do you use for storage? I mean like arts and crafts type stuff. I also homeschool and would like some sort of storage for those things. It just makes it seem so messy when things don't have a proper place. Thanks for any ideas

We have a shelf in our homeschool room for most stuff. Beads and other small misc items are in a storage thing with drawers (from Home Depot -- it was meant to organize screws and nails). Playdough and playdough tools are in a rubermaid container in the kitchen.

My sis has a smaller house and more kids. She bought an organizer that has several drawers and is on rollars. She keeps it in her dinning room.

You should just call me over and I can get creative. Besides you are helping me build my castle for storage.
Seriously though go buy CLEAR PLASTIC SHOEBOXES, and BOOT BOXES.
I have pics i can send you of an idea.

I either use clear bins- shoebox size- or baskets. i have to have it easily visable and accessable or it won't work.

I use plastic or metal drawer things. And boxes and I have a cabinet that holds a lot of it.

www.ikea.com has an AWESOME, small metal drawer unit under office supplies.
