I received samples of Stock-It-Pockets that inspired these craft storage ideas. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I think most of us, even those who typically love to keep things organized, have one spot in their home that could use a little TLC.  It’s usually a kitchen drawer or random closet that even when you try to keep it straight, it just doesn’t work.  Kind of like the episode of Friends where Chandler opens the normally neat Monica’s secret “throw all” closet and is shocked by what he sees.

Craft Storage Ideas with Stock-It-Pockets Over-the-Door Organizers

For me, it’s always been my crafting closet or space.  There are just so many spools of ribbon, bags of buttons, bottles of paint and other odds and ends it’s hard to keep it all tidy.  I even bought a few plastic bins which generally keep me on top of the organizational ball, but they just weren’t cutting it.

Now, though, I finally have a handle on my crafting supplies.  I found over-the-door organizers called Stock-It-Pockets and I have filled them full of my crafting goodies.  The 22 pockets hold all the odd sizes perfectly.

Stock-It-Pockets couldn’t be easier to use.  Choose the door where you want the organizer to hang, and place the three included hooks over the top.  Then just hook the three openings at the top of the pockets over the ends of the hooks and you’re done.  Because there is no actual “installation” I’m able to easily move my supplies around with me from room to room.

I love that the pockets are clear – it lets me see everything at a glance.  No more digging through bins and boxes trying to find a specific color of acrylic paint or that bottle of red glitter.  The pockets are also nice and deep and expand more than you’d think on first glance.

The pockets are water-resistant which makes them easy to clean and should protect them from any accidental paint spills.  They’re also very durable which is important since I’ll be reaching into the pockets frequently.  Having a dedicated craft room is on my dream list someday, but for now, these Stock-It-Pockets are a good alternative.

If you have a crafty person on your holiday shopping list, these would make an awesome gift.  They’d make a great gift for most anyone, actually; use them to organize toys, the garage, toiletries and more.  The organizer actually rolls up and can be secured with three ties, so they’d be great for travelers, too.  Order from Amazon and you can still have them by Christmas if you use Prime (if you’re not a member, you can get a free 30-day Prime trial.  I love it so much I’ve been paying for the service for a couple of years.)

What craft storage ideas do you use?
