Hey everyone! I am new to scrapbooking and have a lot of craft materials now. Can anyone recommend a good brand for storage? I need bins for my house but also something portable that is durable and a good price. What do you suggest? What do you like/use? Thanks!

I like the Art Bin Super Satchels for good general paper and odds and ends storage. I use them for storage on a big bookcase in my room and then - because they are sturdy and have a convenient handle. They stack well enough, but for even easier access, you could also invest in the cube system. I store templates, projects I'm working on, photo printing supplies etc. in them. I can also pack them up and take them to crops so they are very versatile for me.

Iris makes a similar version that is a little less durable and as far as I know, doesn't have the handle, but is very popular due to its relatively cheap price.

I've seen both available at the craft stores. Coupons and/or discounts are definitely the way to go when purchasing them there for even better pricing.

Agree with the art bin you can store them in the cubes or even in IKEa shelving and they are pretty durable. I like them because they hold a ton and they also will fit in my rolling cart perfectly.

You definitely need a good rolling bag. i purchased one from Joanne's that was not too expensive but it quickly fell apart under the weight of what i had in it. Also, it wasn't very big. I now have a big rolling cart from Creative Memories. I take my cricut on retreats with me so i use a tool bag from home depot for that.

I have bought several hard plastic boxes for my scrapbooking paper, and I store them upright ( it`s very difficult to find scrapbooking paper if they are on a huge pile!)
I organize them by brand, and then by color. The papers without pictures on it go inside one box, and the papers with pictures go inside another one.
I have bought plastic boxes with small divisions to store things like buttons, snaps, eyelets and all.
It`s important that you buy one of those small machines to print labels- then you can find everything easily.
Label each and every box or drawer you have!

I use the art boxes, lots of plastic shoe boxes for stamps, etc. I like to see what I have so I can use it. Lots of IKEA products!

I use both of these boxes for paper, scraps, and storing projects I am working on. But I don't necessarily agree that the Iris ones are less durable...The latch clips on my artbin keep popping off, and the box lid got a crack in the corner. My Iris boxes are unmarred. However I still like the features of the artbin, the handle is great for carrying it! The Iris have molded handles, for the record.
