Scrapbook Organization Furniture: 6 Tips For Staying Organized!
6 Scrapbook Organization Furniture Tips
1. Get Started on those Shelving Units.
Let's start with the obvious... shelves are a lifesaver for scrappers. They allow you to stack everything and keep them organized.
You can find shelving units that attach to the wall and wrap around your desk and ones that are more simple, like bookshelves.
If you're handy—or know someone who is—you can even build custom shelves to fit your scrapbook area. Shelves can also be divided into smaller storage units, like paper holders, baskets, and more.
2. Leave Some on the Table.
While larger shelving units are more useful for the majority of scrapbooking supplies, it's always nice to have a few smaller shelving and storage units on the table you're using to scrapbook.
This allows you to always have the tools and supplies you use most within reach, because no one wants to break their focus while scrapbooking just to get up and search for something.
Another scrapbook organization future tip is to invest in paper racks. Yes, the kind that you see in scrapbooking and craft stores.
Units are sold with as little as six slots, to as many as 45 slots. You'd be surprised how much these racks help you organize your paper. You can organize by colors, themes, sizes, and more.
While many people use folding tables, card tables, or other already-existing tables in their house, desks are another great choice if you have the space and monetary flexibility.
Don't just choose the first desk you find; search for one that has lots of drawers, shelves, and/or compartments.
This is a great way to get some bonus organizational space without actually taking up more space.
Nowadays, you can find desks with all sorts of compartments, perfect for things like adhesives, journaling tools, and scissors.
Rolling units are a great bit of scrapbook organization furniture, as they're portable and convenient.
These can be rolling drawers, benches, totes, and more. Having furniture on wheels makes it super easy to move the furniture around or reorganize your scrapbook space.
Rolling drawers are always a great choice, as you can bring them closer to you as you need them, and you can label the drawers according to what is in each of them.
