Here is a link to the organizational challenge blog: My Love Affair with the Label Maker: Organize Your Stuff Challenge - Week 9
I switched to color-sorting my embellishments in 2007, while I was taking the Library of Memories Class. I originally used plastic containers from the dollar store that were similar to the Gladware.
You can see the original pic, from my Antique Dresser scrapping storage pic in my 2Peas gallery.
I loved it, but I don't have drawers in my (former) armoire/shelving unit, and my stash has grown since then.
For a little while, I used gallon size Hefty zipper bags. But when I moved the armoire downstairs to the play area and the doors broke, there wasn't anywhere to hang them.
When I saw that Office Max had the Rubbermaid 2 drawer cubes on clearance, I bought 9 and created a workstation on my table. Another Pea had already posted how they used these, so I was thrilled I could get them on clearance.
This went together really easily. Each drawers has its own color. Tiny items are in snack-size ziploc bags within the drawers to make for easy cleanup. Only 15 drawers are embellishments, the other 3 hold markers & pens, journaling stamps and other stamps.
I liked the cubes so much, I bought regular cubes without drawers for organizing other things for easy grabbing at my work table. More on that when we get to that week.
