How can I get all my supplies organized for scrapbooking?

Depends on a few factors: SPACE (this hobby requires lots of storage space); how do you prefer organizing, as in how do you build your pages (color, theme, manufacturer, closed containers, open containers, clear containers, vertical or horizontal storage)? The first thing to do (and it is a monster to do but it has to be done) is to make an inventory of EVERYTHING that you have (hard to organize/store things if you have no idea of what you have...), purge, then your organization style will be guided by your answers to the above questions. Also consider if you are an at-home scrapper or an away scrapper. An away scrapper's storage needs to be portable in additon to organized...

I found a new tip Idea recently that we all know about and just have not thought of using w our scrapbooking. It is the old standard loose leaf notebook. I just put plastic page dividers in mine, some of those page dividers my son used for his pokemon cards and then even some reclosable baggies that I punched a hole in the corner of. Now I have a place for loose ends, scraps, photos someone gave me copies of at the game, extra buttons someone gifted me, extra ric rac or lace pieces I picked up at a garage sale and then of course this weeks coupons for JoAnns and Michaels in one special page. I keep the notebook in my car and the only problem is going to get it out of the car when I am making a page but it is proven to be SUPER handy !! HOpe someone else finds it handy to.

I am always looking for organization inspiration! Are you on Pinterest.com? If not, check it out. You can search anything and people have "pinned" different pictures and links to blogs etc. that will tell you how to do or an example of what you are looking for.
They have anything you can think of on there. I have been in organization mode and have found a lot of great tips.
The other site I would recommend is the Tip Junkie.

IF you figure it out, let the rest of us know :) lol
I've been working on my scrapbooking room (which is also our office) off and on for a couple of months. First i'm weeding out what I don't want/use. But there is still alot of stuff. Organization is key so I can run in and do a quick page when I have a free moment or two...
