Find Out Which Scrapbook Organizer is Right for You

Get organized! A scrapbook organizer will not only keep your paper crisp, scrapbook tools together and embellishments from sliding under the couch, it will make the limited time you have for scrapbooking more fun!

There are so many types of scrapbook organizers, totes and storage containers. Let's evaluate you needs. Here are a few things to consider:

Where do you Scrapbook?

Do you do most of your scrapbooking in the comforts of your home or do you find that you only take the time when you meet up with friends at a crop?

If you scrapbook mostly "on the go" I would consider a tote or wheeled bag. My favorite scrapbook totes and wheeled bags are by Mimi. However, Crop In Style has the mother of all wheeled bags. Keep all your scrapbooking supplies organized in this beaut!

What is the one thing you wish you had with you when you are scrapbooking "on the go"? A trash can! I really miss having a place to put my unwanted scraps. I have found that an empty coffee can works great! However, carrying around a coffee can is quite a burden! I recently found a "Scrap Can" by Croppin Cutie that is collapsible so that it can fit in your tote or wheeled bag!

How Much Room Do You Have to Work?

If you do most of your scrapbooking at home, there is one major consideration when finding the perfect scrapbook organizer...How much space do you have?

If you have to store your supplies in a closet and pull them out each time you would like to scrapbook, I would suggest organizing your supplies in a scrapbook wheeled bag, like the Crop In Style wheeled bag suggested above. Fiskars also has a wheeled bag that can store quite a bit of supplies!

No room on the floor of you closet for your scrapbook organizer? How about in your hanging space? Creating Keepsakes Storage has some neat 2-sided hanging paper organizers that will store your scrapbook paper and albums in your closet. What a neat way to save space!

The most important thing for those who have to store their scrapbook supplies out of site, is to ask themselves, what would make things easier? If it is a chore to drag your supplies out, you will probably be less likely to get them out and enjoy the hobby you have grown to love!

Or are you one that has a whole room, or even a corner of a room, dedicated to your crafts? You are the lucky one! But, as you know, there is still work to be done to keep your room uncluttered and enjoyable to work.

Display Dynamics has some nice stackable paper trays that can be placed on a rolling base. Also, if you have some shelf space, take a look at the hanging file folders Scrap-Eze has to offer. These hanging file folders will keep your scrapbook paper and cardstock from getting damaged!

Where to store all of your embellishments, tools and photos? Cropper Hopper has an assortment of scrapbook organizers and accessories!

And Memory Dock has a Photo Dock which you can store and organize your photos. The Photo Dock contains 15 photo holders. Each holder can store up to 70 - 5 x 7 inch, or smaller, photos.

Show Me the Money Deals!

As most of us do, I spend way too much money on my scrapbooking hobby! How can I justify purchasing a scrapbook organizer that costs more than the gifts I have given to my dear husband in the last year? Well, I can't really justify it; therefore I shop eBay!

Recently I purchased five clear 12 x 12 plastic containers. I love them and they were about half the price of any similar item I could find in the craft stores.

Also consider shopping at Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft. You can sign up to be a preferred customer and receive 40% of one item coupons. These coupons come about once a month. I try to use the coupons on my big purchase, like a scrapbook organizer. CLICK HERE to compare organizers and totes at Jo-Ann's.
Stay organized so you can enjoy your scrapbooking hobby to its fullest!
