If you love scrapbooks, and putting them together, you are probably already well aware of the mess this hobby can make of your home. If you don’t have a space you can totally devote to your scrapbook supplies, you probably have stuff piled up in a corner or in the closet somewhere, much like I do. If you have a huge mess, and find that you can’t keep up with your supplies, you had better look into getting a scrapbook organizer or two to help you clean up and stay organized.
You can buy almost anything for a scrapbook organizer. You can buy some that are specifically made just for scrapbook supplies. These come with pockets to organize your papers, some for your pens, others for stencils, and small pockets and drawers for embellishments and other small objects. This type of scrapbook organizer is great if you don’t have a lot of stuff, but if you have more, you might need to buy something a little larger.
You can use other things for a scrapbook organizer if you look around for something else. You might find something with a lot of small nooks and crannies that isn’t necessarily made for scrapbook materials, but will work just fine. These might include jewelry boxes for small items, or large plastic storage units for your books and papers. You might also consider something that hangs from the wall to keep your writing utensils, scissors, and rulers organized.
You might also find an under-the-bed rolling container to use as a scrapbook organizer. This is perfect if you don’t have a lot of room, and want to keep things hidden. Find one that will slip right under your bed, fill it up with your supplies, and pull it out when you need it. You can use smaller items to keep the tiny objects and tools together, and keep them right in the larger container.
If you have the space, you can have someone build you a permanent scrapbook organizer. This can include a large working space for scrap booking and various shelves and holds for all of your needed items. You can have this built in a space you always use for your hobbies, and this can double as study space for your children when you are not doing your scrapbooks. If you don’t have anyone to build this type of scrapbook organizer for you, find a good desk that will suit your needs instead.
