Small Office Supplies Storage

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  Mine was busy, but I still had time to do a little organizing.  One project I crossed off my list was finding a way to store my small office supplies so they are all together and accessible.  You know the ones….paper clips, push pins and all those extra file tabs.

I was cleaning the other day when I came across this little bead organizer.  I thought the compartments were perfect!  I hadn't used the beads in years, so I tossed them together in another bead bin and cleaned this one up a little.

I then gathered all the small office supplies that I had and put them in their new home.  This one is a small bead organizer but I've seen larger ones sold at craft stores and Walmart.  Some even have adjustable compartments so you can fit larger items. 

On the outside I used my, wait for it……shelf liner to decorate the front.  (I love, love, love that stuff!)  I wanted it to have some color and I love chevron!  I also put a label on the top and side so I will be able to know what's inside.

I then put this little box into a bigger box of office supplies.  Now everything is in one place and easy to find!  Here's one last look. 

Have you used bead or tackle boxes to organize anything?

  1. What a great idea. I am always looking for better ways to store small items. Thanks for sharing!

    1. You're welcome Shonee! Thanks for stopping by. =)

  2. I have a large(!) tackle box with many storage organizers, each with repositionable dividers, which I use to organize buttons by color and size. My white buttons use a large one all by themselves. I have some specialty buttons that are in another organizer. The rest of the buttons are organized by color in ROYGBIV order, plus black and brown.

    1. Wow Amelia! That sounds like a great collection! :)

  3. Love the shelf liner idea!Thanks for linking to Motivational Monday!

  4. Those thumbtacks are cute! Not the regular plain ones.

  5. Great idea for organizing! Love how you covered the lid! So creative :)

    1. THank you Jane! It's the magic of my shelf liner! I use it for everything! =)
