Nifty Organizational Ideas

I am the world's worst organizer.  
I usually do know where everything is, but I'd like to be more organized.....

I've been really working on it and here are a couple of things that are helping me.

I used the empty container from a big thing of cheese balls to put my yarn in.  I just washed it out, cut a hole in the lid for my yarn to go through and duct tape the hole for reinforcement.  Now all of my yarn for my project fits in the container and the I just put the color I'm using on the top and run the yarn through the hole and when I'm not crocheting I can put my hook through the hole and I won't misplace it.

Super Easy and a way to recycle, reuse and get organized!

Next is this really nifty ironing board that we got.  Earl saw it and thought of me and my stacks of fabric laying all over the place.  It is great for using next to my sewing machine.  I have some fabric in the bins underneath and then I can use the ironing board whenever I need it.  This cool little thing is on wheels so I can move it around if I need to. 

Love it!

Great ideas Sherry. I also use those over the door plastic shoe holders with about 16-20 pockets and they work for Barbies, View Masters, crayons, pencils, sewing items, etc. So nice!

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
