Members Were Sparked
I have ALOT of themes for scrapbooking~ Animals,Baby,Pets, Romance/Valentine's Day,etc. When a craft store has a sale on the plastic see-through folders for a $1.00each [regularly $2.99],I buy a bunch of them as I "house" themes in each one and then store them upright alphabetically .For example~ my"Disneyland " plastic folder has in it~any Disney paper,embellishments,Cricut cut-outs from Disney cartridge~Mickey font ~and even "mouse" related stuff I might want to use on pages for Disneyland.
This way when we go to Disneyland, I have a place to go that is PRE-ORGANIZED for scrapbooking those pages!

I purchased several 24 oz water bottles (plastic ones at Walmart for $1.00) and keep them filled with water in the fridge. So whenever I need water I just grab a bottle and I know that it is 3 glasses. I carried it around the house with me always.
Scrapbookers~ 3 in 1 tip for Organization of BIG Themes!
First of all~ a BIG theme to me is Wedding,Baby Boy,Baby Girl,Christmas. To organize all the myriad of scrapbooking stuff for each BIG theme, I have to divide each theme into 3 categories and then EACH CATEGORY OF THAT THEME gets an IRIS box[ those see-through thick containers that store materials for scrapbooking HORIZONTALLY]. For example,Wedding has a box for PAPER, a second box for EMBELLISHMENTS [flat & 3-D grouped together] and a third box for RUB-ONS/STICKERS. This way when I go to ...
...to look for something specific for a BIG theme,it doesn't take me as long as I really can ORGANIZE all that stuff! It has particularly helped with doing Wedding pages as I LOVE to embellish! Note: I also recommend investing in those stacker carts that you can buy to hold the IRIS boxes!
I'm sure you've seen all those dollar stores that seem to have sprung up everywhere! Well, guess what? They really DO save you money. If you are a sharp shopper, you can find many wonderful bargains at dollar stores. Bags of chips for a party - $1. Brand name over the counter medicines - $1. Fun gifts for a child - $1. Candles to decorate your house - $1. Holiday items - $1. Don't miss out on these wonderful savings
Just be aware that some of these stores say they are dollar stores, but do have items that cost more. I avoid those stores & only shop at stores where everything is $1 or less!
