Organizing Ideas for 2012

I'm sure you are like me where you have resolved to finally declutter your house this year. Well, it is certainly a daunting task, so let's take it room by room. How about we start in the craft room?

Paint Organizer:
Using an old cookie sheet and magnets, you can store your paints upside down and they will always be good to go right away.
Yarn Storage:
Make a fast run to Lowe's or Home Depot for a French Drain, for about $5, cut to the depth of your cabinet and you have yourself a quick and easy skein holder.Button Holder:
Around a dollar a piece (depending on the size) you can have a quick container for all of those buttons and little odds and ends that you don't know what to do with. It's a great way to reuse baby food jars.
Wall Baskets:
Yes, I know this is picture of the laundry room. But just imagine that this would make great fabric storage, or scrapbook paper holder. Numerous possibilities.
Ribbon Storage:
I have been trying to figure out a great way to store all of my ribbon instead of wading through my giant Kohl's bag. Use a tension rod inside of a cabinet and they will line up beautifully. (So much better than getting so frustrated that you can't find the ribbon you want so you start throwing ribbon everywhere only to find the one you want at the very bottom of the bag. Guilty, me? lol)
Hope this starts to get the creative wheels going!
