Creative Storage IdeasQ. Where does a creative person like you do DIY projects and keep hobby doodads?A. I highly suggest buying only what is needed for a particular project at the time you intend to tackle that project. In other words, don’t buy a set of, say, 100 beads if you need only 10. And don’t buy goods today for a task you plan to do a month from now. You might never get around to it, but then you’ll have to stash the materials regardless. This approach will hopefully save you money, reduce your footprint on the environment and reduce clutter within your home — all without shorting you of the joys and experiences involved. Additionally, when seeking storage containers, don’t limit yourself to searching strictly for an item by its name or intended purpose. Broaden your scope and search instead for an item that matches your allotted storage space and needs. For example, a bulky craft supply box might not fit well in your small space, whereas a hanging pocket jewelry organizer can keep your supplies orderly while tucking neatly into your closet with ease.
