Kim’s Storage Tip

Hi everybody! Kim here to share a storage tip. My favorite storage item is my tote bag filled with basic supplies for card making or scrapbooking. It goes everywhere with me when I’m crafting. There are many styles and brands out there, but I love this tote my hubby got me a few Christmases ago from the hardware store of all places. It’s not your ordinary tote. It’s tough, but lightweight, open and sturdy. It comes in many colors, has lots of pockets and space, and costs a lot less than some craft brands.

Once you have selected your tote, it’s time to fill it. Choose the tools and products you grab for and use the most. As you can see, mine has many types of scissors, pens, multiple ink pads, embossing powders, various adhesives, a small sticker maker and usually a paper trimmer, too.  I have placed smaller tools in the pockets like a paper piercer, bone folder, paper distress tool, H2O pen and a watermark pen.

When your tote is filled, you’re ready to start crafting, or pick up and go to a crop, or head off to a weekend retreat with your girlfriends. No more shuffling and searching—you’ll be more organized, and have your basic tools right at your fingertips. So, look around you for storage inspiration and get organized. Where do you find unique storage? Leave a comment and let us know. We’d love to hear from you.

Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. Great idea, Kim! You sure did get a lot of supplies in your tote. One of my favorite storage pieces is a tackle box I got in the fishing department of a sporting goods store. Thanks for sharing!
