Organization: Pocket Organizers

Welcome to another week of Must Have Craft Tips & More! 
We are continuing with more organizational tips this week.
I am here to show you 10 different ways you can use pocket organizers for other than their normal purpose. They can be great additions no matter how small your space is.
I found these organizers in the Dollar Spot at Target.
One is just a small over the door shoe organizer and the other is an accessory holder.
I’ll also show you a few ways to use a hanging closet shoe organizer.Starting with a few ways to use these with items around the house.
Use the accessory organizer to store travel size toiletries for your guest.
Hang it in the bathroom or in the guest room closet for your guest to use just in case they forgot to bring one of the essentials.
You could also pack the organizer when you travel and help organize your toiletries at the hotel.
Have a small bathroom with little storage?
Don’t forget that you can use the back of your door!
Use a pocket shoe organizer and keep all your supplies in one place. Lotions, hair products, hair brushes… just slip them into each pocket and they are all in their place!
They sell much larger organizers than this one to suit all your needs.
Have tiny closets but need somewhere to store your sheets and towels?
Just use a hanging shoe organizer and roll up the towels and slip them into each spot.
This is also perfect to place in a guest room closet if you don’t have another space for towels and sheets.
We’ve had this over the door organizer for many years now.
It can be used to store books…
Or how about those extra toys sitting around?
Get them off the floor and up in the pockets to help tidy up.

And of course, you can place blankets and sheets in them as well, which is the main way we use it in my house.And now onto ways to store your more crafty supplies.

How about using the accessory organizer for all your embroidery supplies?
Place all your thread in the pockets where you can see all the colors and then you can store new thread that needs to be put on a spool.
Place your ink, scissors, needles in a pocket as well for easy reach.
You can even slip some of your upcoming projects into the pockets to store until you get to creating them.
You can use the over the door shoe organizer to store all that fabric you have sitting around.
Just roll them up and slip them into the pockets.
And if you are like me and you like to browse the fabric remnant bins, you will have lots of random rolls of fabric sitting about that is perfect for this.
Are you a knitter?
How about placing your yarn  into each pocket? You can even store your knitting needles in a pocket as well.
OR you can use the hanging shoe organizer for your yarn as well.
Spots are large so you can fit a few in each hole.
You can even fold up whatever project you are working on and slip it into one of the spots until you have time to finish it.

There you have it!
10 ways to use pocket organizer other than their main use.

Do you use them the way they were intended or do you use them in one of these ways?Stay tuned for more tips next week!

Organization: Labeling

Hello and happy Friday, friends! Thank you for joining us for our first ever Must Have Craft Tips & More series. Each week of this month, my blog friends Michele, Bev, Allison, and myself will be focusing on organization tips. And this week I am zoning in on my favorite way to organize… labeling.

Must Have Craft Tips and More

I am what I like to call, a labeloholic. Yes, it’s a thing. And let me just warn you, that after this post you might become one too. I label things in my daughter’s school/play room. I label things in my craft room. I label things in our closets and pantries and kitchen. I label our foods at parties and barbecues. Why do I label all the things, you ask? Well when I label, it makes things easier to find and easier to put away. And let’s face it, I’m all about making life just a little bit easier.

There are so many different ways to label. I’ve used iron-on vinyl for canvas crates and it’s worked really well. Now when I say “Clean up your stuffies!” they have an easy to find home that my daughter can locate on her own. You can get the how-to HERE.

You can label using stickers or adhesive labels and they are super inexpensive. I’ve found them at Michael’s and the Target dollar spot and they work on everything!

I love using chalkboard tags to label (and I found these cute ones at Michael’s). It makes it easy to erase and label it differently if you need to later on. You can check out all the labeling that went on in my craft room HERE.

I’ve also labeled using vinyl and transfer paper. It was really easy to design, cut, and apply on glass jars using my Silhouette. I did this in my pantry and in the laundry room. Now I don’t have to hear “Mom, where’s the snacks?!” because I have a bin in the pantry labeled “Snacks” that I refill each week. Talk about a mom win!

The last tip this labeloholic is going to give you is to label that food at your parties. Yes, you can organize your party platters and foods too! This helps with food allergies and preferences and you won’t have to answer the “what is this?!” question 1,000 times when guests are trying your delicious homemade tapenade.

So, do y’all label to better organize yourself? What kinds of ways do you label?

I hope you’ve found this week’s Must Have Craft Tips & More helpful! Next week we will continue bringing you more tips on organization. Feel free to leave a comment letting us know any other areas you might need some helpful tips! We’d love to add it to our calendar.


We will see you next week! Have a great weekend…. go get that labeling on!
