Here are over 20 great ways to organize craft supplies. These come in handy for cleaning up your craft room or studio. Lots of budget friendly options!My crafting area is a disaster right now. Since I’m living in a loft, I don’t have a “room,” but I do have an area . . . and I know many of you do have craft rooms. And all of us could probably use some organization.

The fact is, when you have craft supplies, you typically have a lot of them. And that means there’s a lot to keep corralled. It’s January (National Organization Month), so I’m going to focus on getting my craft area cleaned up and sorted.
