Get Organised

Take Stock of All Your Craft Supplies | A Free Printable

You may have noticed that I’m on a serious purging and organizing kick of late. I’ve decided to kick creative clutter in my craft supplies to the curb, once and for all, and I want to help you do the same.

One thing I’ve noticed with a lot of organizational approaches, is that we end up trying to organize absolutely all our craft supplies, no matter how long we’ve had them, or whether or not we still use them. So we end up in an endless loop of buying more and more storage solutions, but eventually giving up, then starting the cycle all over again.

So What Should We Do?

I’m convinced that we need to start by culling as much as possible the things we have in our supplies, and then organizing what’s left. And what’s left should be things that motivate, excite and inspire us!

Sounds simple, but it seems that we have a hard time seeing how much we really have. As we start to organize our spaces, we may simply move from area to area, trying to get things into boxes, bins or shelves. The aha moment for me was realising that I really needed to get a more accurate feel for just how much stuff I had, before I could effectively decide what should go and what should stay.

Take Stock

My suggestion is to do a complete inventory of all the craft supplies you have, before you start organizing. Sounds overwhelming? I’ve come up with a printable guide that can help. This two-page list is by no means exhaustive, but, it will help you see the big picture. Use it as a jumping off point, and make sure to write in anything specific to your crafts that I might have missed.
