Melissa’s Organizational Tip
Print Friendly

Hi there! Melissa here with you today to share one of my favorite organization and storage tips. It’s nothing fancy, but it works perfectly for me. I had been looking for the best way to store my extra die cuts. I always tend to cut way more than I need when I’m creating and never want to throw anything away. These bins work perfectly for storing all of those extras.

I have an L-shaped workspace and they line up perfectly along the back of one of the sides. They also stack nicely, which is great when I need more workspace.

I use to sort my extra dies by theme—flowers, sentiments, birthday, baby, etc. I have since stopped doing that and now sort by stamp companies. This way seems to work better for me.

Like I said, nothing fancy, but super inexpensive and effective. I would love to hear how you store your “extras.”

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by to say hello!

    When I cut extra pieces (which I generally do on purpose to save time in the future), I store them in with the actual dies. That way I have what I need without searching.

  2. Great idea. Thanks for sharing.

    I store mine in a coupon file.

  4. I love your creative thinking! I also had a collection of loose dies and have corraled them by using plastic veggie bins. Tn our area mushrooms are sold in lightweight plastic containers. I saved a bunch over time (I buy one bin a week). I sort them by words, shapes, background etc. I also stack them.
