Getting organized is a common resolution for many people whenever a new year begins. If that was one of your goals or if you simply want to make your home a little tidier, you can do just that.

Wooden peg boards are easily attached to a wall. You can hang scissors, measuring tapes, ribbons and even a thread holder on the board. This way you can see everything! No more digging through drawers trying to find what you need. You can even make it a little prettier by tracing the outline of the scissors or other tools with a pretty paint color.
Tool boxes are a crafter’s dream. You can stash all the little bits and pieces in the drawers. Everything will have its place. Using a label gun to identify each drawer will make it that much easier to find exactly what you are looking for.
