Tuesday Tip: Organization-My Way :)

24 hours left to sign up for my mailing list if you want the 12 Weeks of Christmas e-mails!

Anyone who has been in my craft room will probably laugh at this blog post :). Although it's not the neatest, I do know where everything is. I don't have a lot of fancy furniture or shelving units, but my "stuff" is organized...well, mostly. ;).
Today, I wanted to share how I store or "organize" my card stock.

Nothing special, just some of the 12 x 12 drawer units from the big box stores and most importantly "labeled". I have a drawer (or two) for each color collection...full sheets and and a drawer for each collection of scraps. The labeling is the kicker here.
Every scrap that I save has a place. There is no specific size for scraps that I save, but I do I have to clean out these drawers often. However, I have made cards completely from scraps and that is a great feeling! I also know exactly where to look for a specific color.

The labels are punched or cut pieces of large address labels. One day, I'll coordinate this look but for now, I'd rather be stamping! :)
How do you store your card stock? I'd love to hear your about what works for you!
