My Best Craft Crap Organizing Tip Yet

Have you ever tried something only to realize you wish you had thought of it sooner because it just saves you tons of time, headache, etc.? Well this little tip was like that for me. It may be a no brainer for others but I kept on finding myself taking FOREVER to find the end of my whatever craft crap I was currently working with. If it was long and stingy I just could not find the end without many long minutes of searching and unraveling.

In an act of desperation one afternoon after trying to pack some orders up speedily before the post office closed and fighting once again with my fallen apart ball of yarn, I decided to tie ribbon or different color yarn to the ends. And WAM it was like a miracle. I could quickly and easily always find the end.

And because I have a problem in excess I went crazy and did this to everything else I use. My big bundle of lace, snap tape, really everything. Maybe it’s just me and I just need to stop being lazy but I know I can’t be the only one. Hope it helps.
