Storage Bins

Whether you're a painter, quilter, scrapbooker or all three, you're bound to accrue a ton of supplies over time. Do yourself and your closet a favor by purchasing some quality storage items to keep things from getting mixed and messed up. You don't want to risk your glue sticks melting all over your closet's carpet, do you?

However you choose to organize, there's bound to be a system out there for you. Clear plastic bins are ideal because they allow you to easily see their contents. Or, you could create a color-coded system and tape a key to the inside of your closet door. For example, the blue bin is home to painting supplies, the red bin contains thread, and so on.
