I was just wondering how everyone else organizes their beads & supplies. I am going to get everything reorganized by color. I have the clear containers (my latest purchases were for fishing...they were cheaper and they had more options to chose from than the ones in the craft area). I am going to reorganize everything by color. I am thinking this will be a fairly big undertaking since I have so many containers. Right now my beads are organized by type. I have containers for the stone beads, chalk turquoise, seed beads, glass beads, yatta yatta.

Good question, Conniem! I've been known to do it by material and then by color in each category.

I have a lot more beads than I used to now. I will get to diging through a box and find stuff I forgot I had. So I am hoping that reorganizing will help!

Excellent idea. I've even heard of people organizing their seed beeds into little spice jars and putting them on rotating racks or into spice racks attached to a cabinet door (as in a crafts cabinet) so they can see everything. It's always good to be able to see your complete inventory of supplies.

I hope to get myself organized also - I picked up plastic containers with crew lids - found them in the grocery store - inexpensive - but after doing any work I need to put it all away and as a result I have trouble getting started again.

Organizing by color sounds like a good idea.

I had the spice jars for a while. Seems like then I had a huge collection of them and they took up so much space!

Angie, I have the same problem too. Right now my mess is all cleaned up though as my daughter and her family are visiting until Wednesday. I have a show to go to on Saturday and then another on the 4th of July. I'm hoping to sell a bunch of stuff!

Hope you have a good time with your company...I am enjoying having my daughter and her family here. She makes jewelry too and brought me some stuff and I gave her a bunch of stuff to take home. I will have room for more beads!!

My show on Saturday was horrible! I sold one bracelet! It was so hot too....101. I am dreading Saturday! I think the weather is supposed to be cooler though...90. Hopefully sales will be way better!
