Organizing Bits and Bobbles and Brads

Organizing my supplies for my hobby has to be as much of a passion of mine as my hobby itself given how much time I end up giving to organization. It's insane.  I think I have a sickness but I'm really not interested in a cure.  

I may have found my most favorite way to organize brads and other small accent items.  I love these little round containers that I found in jewelry making section of Michael's and JoAnn's.  They come in two sizes: the one shown and one twice as tall.  They have little lids that screw on and a larger plastic container in which multiple little round containers can nestler together.  

I much prefer these to the tackle box style compartment containers as the little items are trapped in their container and can't migrate into the next bin.  Plus, when I want to get a certain item out, I can just take that container and tip it. If I did that with a tackle box style container, I'd get a big mess.

Below are four large flats off these continers in one of my Steralite drawers with a smidgen of room to spare at the side.

I have some of these Steralite containers under my desk and are so easy to access when I'm working on a project.


  1. I really like these!! Thank you for sharing!

  2. I just got one of these boxes too (I have less than you!) but it is full so another may be on the horizon. I love the idea of putting it in a drawer.
    Yours are so colorful and happy!

  3. Thank you for setting such a good example of what organization looks like, Monika! :) I need to get organized and really like those clear containers for storing brads. I have two big paper bins that most of my small stuff is in and they are a disaster zone.
