I posted a few weeks ago about my desire to start organizing the supplies in this closet at one of my museums. It contains many art and craft supplies that I use for my school programs and vacation camp programs. Most of the supplies have their own containers (baskets, boxes, etc.), but the disorganization is pretty widespread.
So I decided that containers of uniform sizes and shapes were the key. I picked up a few KASSETT boxes at IKEA and filled them with crayons and colored pencils. It may not look like much now, but imagine the whole closet full of white, well-labeled boxes. A small step in the right direction!
