This is what you do, take a zip lock bag or a shoe box and put a bunch of old stuff in it and store it in a different place from your crafts, like the canned food closet or broom closet or something. Then when you go to that closet later on after you forgot about the stuff - It's like Christmas finding it.
Or you can make a special store room, like when you feel like going to the store to buy more stuff, go to that room and look first, it will be like you went to the store, but free!!
I actually put mine in shoe boxes and containers that have separate spaces in them. Then when I want to go to the store and buy more stuff, I go through them first and its awesome. Saves gas and money because I have so much.
The first container has stickers, dominos, post cards, papers, stickers, and napkins.
The 5th one is full of different bells wood pieces buttons and charms...
The 6th one is full of roses, tiny seed packets, tiny spools, ribbon, bunny tails and black glue.
Mine is upstairs so it is really Hot up there the #7 one has buttons all different holidays so cool, I just have to get a shank cutter so I can use them.
