Craft Storage Idea

I've been having a bit of a sortout of some of my craft materials and thought of this idea for storage  Some of you probably already do it but for me it was new and very useful.

When you put all your paints/fluids etc into boxes you can't tell which bottle is which from above.  Instead of pulling each one out to find the one you want, write on the top what it is:

I used a Sharpie pen.

Its also useful for embossing powders:

I haven't been crafting for a while because I am ill AGAIN!  My temperature keeps flutuating and I can't swallow.  I'm off to the Doctor's later this morning, hopefully he/she will give me some nice medicine. 

Thanks for reading and for any comments,

You poor thing, you must have barely recovered from the last time! Hope you get sorted and get shot of it really soon. Love how your tidy mind works.

Would you believe I've been sat doing this today for my move down to the unit? We must be psychic :D

Hope you start to feel better soon.

Hope you're feeling better now - hugs.

I have a drawer in my kitchen full of tins that I do this with - OH thinks I'm off my head but it makes life easier :) Jaqui x

Thanks for visiting It's A Creative World. I love your 'labelling the lids' tip - so easy to do, but saves pulling everything out. Any time we can save is time we can spend creating, right? I will label mine pronto.
