Just One Tip: Color Sorting

Happy Monday. It’s Cicily sharing a quick tip for you today.

Back when my scrapbook supply collection hadn’t overtaken my room and I wasn’t so concerned with organization, my sister had me flabbergasted when she coordinated her cardstock by color. I thought she was a little off her rocker. Then she sorted her buttons by color. I still wasn’t fully convinced.  But then I started thinking about how easy things are to find if you were able to go straight for the right color.

Then this happened in my room!

 

My buttons, card stock and scrap paper soon followed suit and were sorted by color . I have to admit it helps a lot when searching for a specific color of something. I even sorted my patterned paper by color, right next to my card stock. I don’t do this with everything, mostly with supplies that I don’t have too many of, like my washi tape and markers.

Organizing is all about what work’s for you. If you haven’t tried color sorting, give it a whirl!
