Time to talk organizing and storage. This week we are focusing on buttons. I am in the process of updating my button storage. Which I think is a theme for crafters.....we are constantly re-organizing. Most of my buttons are organized in the trays pictured below. This are deep drawer organizers intended for office supplies. But that never stops us, does it. We can always re-purpose items. Plus they are pretty inexpensive. I believe I purchased them for $5 a piece at Walmart. I have 6 of them and they are housed in a shelving unit that supports my desk.
Years ago I started organizing by color and I am so happy I did. The only buttons that are not in these drawers are my white buttons. Because I have toooooooo many of them. Imagine that. LOL!
So I have been weighing my options. I have these metal buckets....which I love, but also hate. Why do I hate them? Because I can't see what is in them. Currently they house a variety of embellishments and multi-colored ribbon. But because I can't see what is in them I never use anything housed there. UGGGGG! Time to make a change.
While updating the MCL Pinterest Board I found many, many photos like this one. I am planning on swapping out my buckets for Mason jars. Now I just have to figure out what to with the buckets.....don't know if I can part with them. :)
Now it is your turn.....how do you store your buttons?
