Are you the Queen of Clutter?

If you are anything like me you have more clutter in the guise of organized little piles, than the actual organization of a really big mess. There is some method to my madness but there are times, like where my scraps are concerned, that I could use a little help. I don't like to throw out scraps. After all, those used to be trees and trees that have been turned into pretty paper don't come cheap! So, my eco-friendly side and my economical side get to work together in this notion. We shouldn't waste paper just because it isn't 12x12 anymore. If I think I can get a die cut out of it, I'll hang on to it...but where?

I've used storage boxes. The paper just laid there piling higher and higher. It wasn't easy for me to manage or sort through so I moved to hanging files. Easier to manage, but I would forget what I had and the scraps would never get used. I need something both visible and easy to use. What is my solution?

Go to the DCRU DT Blog and read up on Diane's tutorial on maintaining your scraps. Figure out which method I'm going to try and come back here to leave me a comment. Those who choose right will be entered into a drawing to win some blog candy from me. Its a grab bag...could be stickers, die cuts, embellies, ribbon, paper (not scraps, I promise), or it could be all of the above. So, go here and see what you think my choice for storage is going to be...enter your comment on this blog posted by Tuesday 11:59 PM EST and I'll announce the winner on the WOW! Wednesday post.

Have fun...keep your hands busy!
