Works for Me Wednesday - Craft Closet

Here's my (alexa's) first attempt at a WFMW. I don't think I can compare to Jen because she is the most frugal person I know. She could do a post a week for that category! But lucky for me, this week is just what Works for Me!

We LOVE crafts in this house. And I don't like to have to supervise them.... I have what's called the "craft closet". I think it used to be a broom closet, but from the day we moved in, I filled it with wire shelves and crafts supplies.

This past week I felt the need to reorganize - a need I feel often in certain rooms (the craft closet, the store room and the playroom). We now have the bottom shelf with the supplies that I don't mind them getting into, the crayons, pencils etc. The shelf above has the paper supply and a few used coloring books. Above that, we have magazines for cutting out and the beading...
And higher up where they can't reach so easily, I have the supervision (to get started) only boxes. I bought these photo boxes at Michael's when they were on for a dollar. I filled them, opened the lid and snapped a picture, so the kids (and I) don't have to look far to find what we want.

The kids also have these photo boxes on book shelves in their closets packed with toys and labelled with photos.
Organizing (and reorganizing) Works For Me!

Looks great. We love crafts here too. I bought a cabinet on Craigslist that I keep all our crafts in and I love it! It is very handy to have everything in one place.

Wow, that is great. Lot's of fun stuff for the kiddos to create with. I just reorganized my daughter's craft supplies yesterday. Welcome to WFMW. I don't participate every week. But I am always glad when I do.
