I have said it before and I will say it again, organizing is a process. It is a game of trial and error. What works at one moment may not work a week later.
I have to test out storage solutions in my home to see if they will work. Sometimes they do and sometimes they don’t. And, that rings true with this post.
Originally, when I started collecting washi tape, I placed all of the rolls I had on a thread spool that I spray painted hot pink and hung on my pegboard.
Then, I accumulated too much washi and it wouldn’t all fit on the rack, so I had to come up with a different solution. This time around, I tried Jen’s (from iheart organizing) washi tape storage idea.
This worked for about a month until I started buying more washi tape and decided I was going to start decorating my planner. Before, I had washi tape, but I really had no idea what I was supposed to do with it. It was cute and many other crafters had it, so I thought I needed some too. Now, it has a purpose and I want to add more and more to my collection.
So, I wanted something bigger and portable too. If I wanted to work on decorating my planner in my bedroom, then I could pick up a handle to my washi tape storage and go.
After very little thought because I have a go-to for this sort of situation, I decided to go with the ArtBin Super Satchel Slim Compartment Box from Joann.
I do not have enough washi tape to fill up the entire container, which means this should be a good storage solution. I won’t have to switch containers due to lack of space.
And, of course, I had to color-code my washi tape inside(insert smile).
To label the outside of the container, I decided to go with the same “Washi” label that I used on the clear acrylic box. I just laminated it and applied washi tape to the sides to attach it to the container.
