Need suggestions as to how to organize small room into usuable sewing area

Tinka from Menomonee Falls, WI
earring storage

I use plastic ice trays to store my collection of earrings with one or two pair to each "cube" space. I keep my silver earrings and other silver jewelry in the Container Store's Art Bin that has tarnish inhibitor. It has its own dividers that allow me to configure the space to my needs. I have not had to clean my silver jewelry since I started using this ten months ago.

Get the right size the first time

We don't live close to a Container Store so when we were organizing our kitchen and made a road trip to the Schaumburg, IL store I took some of the drawers with me. I walked through the store and was able to find the right styles and sizes to make the most of the space in each drawer. And I knew they would fit!

We just did a major purge of my 13 year old daughter's room. I should have taken a "before" picture- you would not have believed the clutter. These are a few things we did- I hope it lasts!

i finally figured it out!

Save those little black trays that you get from the frozen meal section. (lean cuisine; hungry man) they make great drawer organizers! I kept saving them and my husband called me a hoarder. you should see all the trinkets HE'S hoarding now that i put them in his office drawers=]

1. Have music playing in the background. Middle of the road, music..............people linger longer! and buy! 2. Put items on tables, benches...avoid putting anything on the ground for people to sift through. 3. Have a 25cent box..if you have a free box..people think it's junk...if you have a 25 or 50 cent box people love to buy. When you see children consider giving them a book for free or small token. It keeps them busy while their parents shop and the parents appreciate it as well! 4. SELL DRINKS AND FOOD! Have a cooler with water bottles, soda...sell packaged items so people know that others have not touched them...sell them all for a dollar. 5. Have easy passage ways so people can walk all around the items and clothes hanging on racks. 6. Put a string of flags across your property to that people gather outside the flags before the sale begins. That way they are looking at things that they want ahead of time. WHen you drop the flags people literally run into your driveway/garage for the sale! 7. DO DONATE what you don't sell. COnsider schools for games and toys. Teachers need them for rainy days. Have a truck reserved to pick up your items after your sale. DO NOT bring your items back inside!..YOU did not want them, remember? ENjoy your new space and knowing that you gave to charity!
