"Pink Saturday"~More Pink Storage!!

I can't believe my luck this week. I have been frustrated with my beading supplies storage. I LOVE the clear plastic boxes I have them all sorted in, but then what do I do with all the boxes. I had them stacked in some drawers.....NOT very satisfactory!!
This bag and bin now sit nicely on a shelf.
While strolling thru Michaels the other day, I happened upon the clearance row. Lookie what I found!! I believe they were made for storing scrapbook supplies. This one came with three similar plastic boxes in it and that is what gave me the idea to use them for beads! I can actually fit SIX bead boxes in it.


I also found this briefcase style bag. It had a single big box in the top, but I took it out and put my three small seed bead boxes in it.


If you unzip the other side, there is plenty of room for misc. supplies and tools.


Then I saw this one, heehee!! I didn't need it for beading but it was only $4.97 and you can never have too much PINK storage!!
I was able to find something to put in it, can you imagine that!! I got all three pieces together for UNDER $20.00 Yeah, baby....That's what I'm talking about!!
Make sure you check out more "Pink Saturday" bliss here!

I LOVE how you have those plastic containers in the pink bags, I never thought of that! I also have that same issue, how to actually keep them neatly, well, my whole craft room needs constant help, I get it clean, I craft, it's again a disaster! I'm going to take your tip here to use! Thanks! Happy Pink SAturday! Suzie

You've probably sent a stampede to Michaels everywhere! Your pink organizers are darling and a great buy. Also, we usually get a 40 % coupon for Michael's in our Sunday paper! Thanks for visiting. I hope you will come back soon!

Mermaids of the Lake said...

I love your organization. It's not only practical, its beautiful. And, pink! I have tons of beads, I think at least a dozen of the Michael's boxes full, with loads more in bags. I stack them, but looking at your pink bags gives me a great idea....

Thanks!
