Not being the slightest bit of a craft-project person myself, I hadn't thought to explore craft stores to see what storage options they supply. I'd check them out on-line for specific things (storing scrapbook paper, for example), but never thought to explore them in more depth.
But fellow organizer Geralin Thomas just mentioned A.C. Moore, so I went to their web site - and I'm glad I did.
The first product that caught my eye was the ArtBin Table Top Caddy, shown above. (There's a floor version, too.) ArtBin makes a number of interesting storage products - ones that could easily be used beyond the crafts world they were designed for.
And the I saw the seeyourstuff bags, available in various colors and sizes. These were designed and assembled by Lyle's Fabrics, Crafts & Gifts. Again, I can imagine all sorts of uses for these.
Checking out other craft-oriented stores, I found these Snap 'n Stack organizers at Jo-Ann Fabric & Crafts - and then I found that A.C. Moore has them, too.
So now craft stores are definitely on my radar screen as a place to look for certain types of organizing supplies.
