Breaking Down a Collection
I remember when we first moved into our house, I had more cabinets than I had stuff. I mentioned this to my now husband and he mentioned my comment to a female friend. She got a good laugh out of it and assured him that eventually the stuff would grow to fit the space. Now I always seem to be cleaning out a cabinet, or closet or a space under the bed to store more stuff!
The craft room continually goes through changes as I use product, buy new things and change my interests. A couple of years ago, I moved some of my sewing stuff up the the craft room that had previously been only papercrafts. Now I need about half the space for sewing which means a lot less papercrafting storage. I'm spending more and more of my time sewing again so I need the space to fit the function. I'll have more on this change in an upcoming video.
In the meantime, I'm working through collections and emptying drawers. In this video, I share my process for breaking down a collection. I still save a lot of stuff but not in a drawer devoted to one waning collection.
How do you break down your collections or kits? Do you move items to other areas, donate supplies, throw out what you haven't used?
Thanks for watching today!
