I recently turned a shelving unit in my scraproom into what I'm calling my Refill Station. It's where I store all my refills - I've included extra ink cartridges for my printers, refills for my Xyron machines, bottles containing extra CIU clips, etc. When I run out of something, I know exactly where to look! I love it - I'm not going to be re-buying what I can't find.
One of my card catalog drawers is like that - extra cutting blades, ATG tape, Zig glue pens. The only spare I can think of that doesn't go in there are my extra Cricut blades, which are in the drawer with all my other Cricut accessories.
Great idea. I never know what to do with refill printer ink cartridges and many refills that come in "awkward" boxes. And I like to keep the boxes because it has the model/size numbers on it for the next purchase.
I don't have the space to give my refills their own shelf, but the bottom box in my deep drawer contains most of my refills, mainly adhesive. I always look there first, and if I take the last then I write it on the list. I probably ought to clear out the other stuff which I never use (mostly old packaging which might come in handy one day) and put all the refills in there.
I have a box under my desk that I keep all of my refills in for scrapping stuff. My printer ink and paper are on it's own shelf in another part of the office. Having the refills box definitely helps me to stay organized so I don't run out of things like adhesive or xyron refills!
