Organizing the Easy Way!

This post is highlighting products I received as a Deflecto USA Ammbassador design team member.

I am in love. Serious, big time love... with my new Deflecto USA organization supplies.

I have serious problems with organizing my craft room. Usually it looks like some sort of storm blew through. I have way too much stuff and not enough room to store it all. I have tried to get a handle on the chaos with tons of types of organization, especially with my small items. I have used jars (cute but not really practical if you have lots of stuff you want to organize in groups), plastic storage boxes (but where do you put all of those once you fill them?), binders, bags... you get the idea. I was never super happy with any of them.

But wait? What's this?

These are the new Craft Tilt Bins from Deflecto USA. They come with different numbers of bins (these are the 5 and 6 bin models) and they interlock so you can stack them! The other cool thing is that you can even mount them to the wall.

I placed mine right on my worktable so I can easily access the supplies I use the most, namely inks and adhesives... and snacks. Yep, one bin just for my scrappin' snacks.

And yes, while putting stuff in those bins, I realized I have a real problem with Colorbox Cat's Eye Chalk Inks. There should be a 12-step program. ColorBox, I can't quit you.

The bins tilt out for easy access to your goodies. Isn't that clever? Each bin also has a place for a little tag to identify what's in your bins, but I left those out in case I get crazy and switch things up on the fly. :)

But wait, there's more!

Deflecto also makes these Stackable Cube Organizers. They come in different configurations: here you see the open bin (holding my large scissors and ATG guns), the X bin (which holds pens beautifully), and the 4-drawer bin (where I keep small tools, glue pens, etc.). These fit nicely on the corner of my worktable.

And that's not all...

How awesome is this? This is the Carousel Rotating Organizer. It has six 3" canisters and 3 6" canisters, each with snap tight lids, and the whole thing is on a spinning base! It's great for storing embellishments, washi tape, tools, and more.

These organizers can be used for so much more than scrap supplies. Take a look at our Deflecto Facebook page and the Deflecto Pinterest page for lots more ideas!

To learn more about these organization products and where to get them, head over to the Deflecto USA site. If you can't find these items in your area, ask your local craft, hobby, and office supply stores to stock them! Now go get organizing!

This is part one of my Deflecto USA Ambassador Design Team posts. Join me later in the week to see my project using Deflecto's magnetic craft sheets!
