Organizing! (Again)

It's getting to be that time of year again, where I get the strong urge to make things orderly in my craft room. I know it's an uphill battle, which wouldn't be so bad if I'd quit adding more stuff. that is ever going to happen!
I can count on three times a year that there will be new DSP added, and three times a year the old DSP will retire, and I can't bear to part with it. The new Occasions catalog will be out in less than three weeks, and I already have all the beautiful DSP in it and the SAB flyer, so I need to make some room!

My solution, which I talked about in this post, are these awesome divided ArtBin containers. They hold a ton of DSP that I've cut down to a convenient 4" x 6" size, and separated with labeled dividers.They're even available in several different colors, but I prefer the clear.

I put the name of the DSP at the top of the divider, and then list the coordinating colors for easy reference later. It's especially helpful when colors retire, because I know I'll never remember the names of some of them! Next month I plan to bless the local elementary school with some long-retired paper that I know I will never use. I think I'm ready to say good-bye to some of them. Maybe. I'm sure the teachers can think up something fun for the kids to do with it!
