Show me how you organize? **Organization challenge**

My craft "table" is a lot less table and more like a craft pit of death. I have a couple small drawers and they're just overflowing with stuff. Every surface including the floor is covered. Anyone want to share so ideas for organizing and maybe a picture or two?

Re: Show me how you organize?

My office is a mess right now as we moved recently and that has been last on my list to tidy up, but I'd love to see what others are doing as well! I'll try to come back and post at least the my fabric closet, when I get some more boxes out of it, as that's as far as organizing has gotten unfortunately.

Re: Show me how you organize?

I could take pics, but I am really boring. We have a small desk area that shares our computer and my sewing machine, and then under that I have four 31 bags that hold my fabric ( organizing utility totes, so pockets for misc supplies) and a small shelf that holds my threads. Cute, but small and simple.

I bought a bookshelf today! No idea what I'm going to do with the shelves yet but it's a bit of a start. I'm tempted to post "now" and "then" pics but it's soooooo baddddddddd!

I am lucky enough to have an entire half of a basement to spread out in and I still can't get it organized... Maybe we should all organize

Sounds good to me! Before and after pics if we're brave? Haha I wish we could make a sticky since organization is always a issue it seems.

Alright... here are the before pics, just don't contact Horders quite yet.

I've been working on this for an hour and I'm so overwhelmed. I think I remember why this has never been organized. I have 5 big tubs of thread. 6 tubs of fabric. Hardware, velcro, feet, ribbons, zippers..... and a dark basement and 4 machines.

This might be a bigger project than I thought. On the upside I did find find my favorite hat.

So... a few hours later and I have at least separated the fabric types into bins. And sorted some of the thread. There are still three tubs with elastics and velcro and who knows what left. I'm done for now at least until I have more money for the swear jar.
