Okay, so I finally bit the bullet and decided it was time for my unorganized rear to GET organized!!!

I've taken the first step and am already in love with my page protectors so I'm ordering more.

Here's the main question: I'm also ordering the Zip N Flip organizer to get my lil stuff under control. What kind of book/binder/holder would you use to then contain THOSE? Does the Craft Binder work?

I figured as much! I am the same way, so I thought I'd give it a whirl and see how long I can keep myself... contained.

Thanks for the tip on the carousel. I'll figure out where I can put one then grab a coupon.

I tell you though, I was dadgummed upset though,,,,the week I had a 60% off coupon (which NEVER EVER happens) they didn't have one of those carousels for love nor money at any M's within a 100 mile radius,,,,,,and trust me, I checked,,,

I was so it wasn't funny,,,,,

I finally ended up just eating my losses and buying it with a 40% coupon,,,,

still a good buy, but 20% is 20% and boy was I

It's a little pricey for start up (I had it on my Christmas/Mothers Day/Birthday list for two years....but for staying organized in regards to embellishments...

the Scraprack is the best way to go.

I thought I had a pic of my whole one but can't find it...you can google it though and site pops up.

Clip it Ups hold a ton of things and make it easy to see. They are great if you have the storage and the $. I have 7. I think of them as my babies.

You need to use the cropper hopper embellishment boxes. They actually have a bigger box than what I found below for you. You might try and look at QVC.com or Cropper Hopper.com to see if you can find it. Not sure what size embellishment bags you were talking about. Hope this helps!

Also during the month of Feb. we did a Scraproom Makeover Challenge here. If you go to that thread...lots of pages...there were lots of photos uploaded and you may get some ideas that will work for you!

I have some zip and flips that I decided not to use and would like to sell. (Not because I found something better...I'm like Holly...constantly unorganized...never get scrapping done because of it...).

Let me know if you'd be interested. I'll figure out how many of what sizes I have and repost in the morning...

I'm probably lacking the space for a CIU. My stuff is contained in one set of floor-to-wall cabinets with a bunch of cook books, too.

I went ahead and ordered one set yesterday. I might be interested in more, so I'd like your pricing information.
