Getting Organised This New Year

It’s been an organising and tidying day today, prompted somewhat by visiting relatives. It feels lovely to have the house all neat and organised. As it’s been that kind of day I thought I’d share my wonderfully useful storage solution for old craft magazines.

My solution involves an old Buddy Box and strips of card. Trawling through the magazines I pulled out interesting projects, articles and pretty papers.  Putting the pretty paper to one side I set the remaining sections into categories and folded them down to fit. I then wrote up labels on strips of cardboard and separated the pages into sections.

What took up half bookshelf now fits into a very reasonably sized box. Theo very much appreciated the new raised bed on his favourite chair.
