Organize-Along Week 3
WOW! It is already week 3 of the Bee Sew Inspired - Organize Along!
Now, do NOT get overwhelmed!
Perhaps you are just joining us this week... or you had good intentions of starting in week one, but then time just ran away... No worries! We are only here to INSPIRE... so don't look back... just look forward and start this week. Real change needs to be slow and realistic... so let's just pick one drawer, or one type of an item and give it a system each week. You can always go back and watch previous organizing videos of week one and two at a more convenient time. We are so happy to have you here! EVERYTHING in the Organize Along is FREE! It is meant to be a beautiful way in inspire each other to organize, share DIY projects, build friendships and more! If you haven't already, please consider joining one or both of our FREE Educational Facebook Groups. You will get the most benefit out of the next week if you not only take part, but give feedback, post questions and share inspiration! We are are so excited you are here! Let's get started!
WEEKLY VIDEO #3 - What's In Between
Join me as we talk through storing all the "In Betweens." We might even have a few laughs this week too! After all, this week is not the glamorous organizing week, but it still is an important week!
Every week we are sharing tips, tricks, laughter and so much more through a weekly Video Chat. You can watch and comment on the video in any of the three platforms or communities that best suits you! We WANT to hear your organizing solutions... so please join us and take part in these fun videos. We will help to keep in inspired as the weeks go on and keep you from overwhelm. One small thing organized is a success!!!
What's In Between:
We LOVE what is in the middle of all our projects. They make them soft, or stiff, flexible or squishy, flat or poofy!!! These items such as quilt batting, fiber fill, interfacing, stabilizer etc are all so wonderful and amazing but often are big, bulky and awkward to store. So what is the solution? Well, that depends on your space and set up. A good rule of thumb it to keep small amounts accessible in your Creative Space and the "extras" hidden away in a dry, cool closet or space free from temperature changes and with air movement. Let's start the conversation and inspire each other to organize even one small section of our "In Betweens" this week!
Clear Bins Anyone?
Clear bins... do you love them or would you rather use concealed storage in cupboards and closets? Perhaps you like clear bins BEHIND closed doors? Or maybe you prefer drawers, or wicker baskets. Whatever you preference is, it is undeniable how helpful containers can be when organizing. After all - their only job is to "contain" their contents. Why not try storing your "In Betweens" in a bin or two. Especially the ones you use often. Creating and sewing is always so much more enjoyable when we don't have to search for the little piece that goes inside our projects. We want to know how YOU store this tricky category!

Ideas and solutions for storing quilt batting:
crate or other box- stand the packages up right so you don’t loose the bottom one
hanging sweater rack. This one is kind of ingenious! Those rolls fit perfectly into those sections. Each section could even be a size as well.
highest shelf in the closet with a labeled box. Put a label on it so you know what’s inside. Highest shelf because they don’t get used that often
rolls– large metal bars like they come on at the store
fabric baskets or other containers that are cute. Love the baby bed idea. It does take floor space, but it’s cute to look at.
Hang the bolts on dowels
Have a lot of little pieces that aren’t big enough to use in a project? You can sew the quilt batting pieces together!
