52 Weeks To An Organized Workspace – Solid Cardstock

collage of cardstock organization ideas with text: How To Organize Solid CardstockWelcome to week eight of the 52 Weeks To An Organized Workspace challenge. This week, we’re organizing our solid cardstock. This should be an easy week for most of us. Solid cardstock isn’t anywhere near as addictive as patterned paper. Or is it? Either way, let’s get to it.

Solid cardstock is definitely a necessary evil. It’s one of those basic supplies that we just can’t seem to live without. Here’s the thing, though. When it really comes down to it, our options are extremely limited for how to organize it. The most obvious way to sort it is of course by color. Once you’ve got that much figured out, the only question left to answer is do you store it horizontally or vertically?

If you don’t have a lot of storage space, you might not have a choice but to store it in some sort of stacked unit. If storage space really isn’t an issue, maybe you’d rather store it horizontally in something like Cropper Hoppers. It of course depends on what makes the most sense for you and your space.

I sort my solid cardstock by color and store it horizontally in Cropper Hopper minis. I’ll share some pictures a little later in the week. I also have a few unopened packs of both white and kraft Bazzill, which are just sort of hanging out on one of my shelves because, at least for the moment, I have more solid cardstock than I do space for it. Note to self: In the future, don’t stock up on solid cardstock. I actually, for the most part, only use the white at this point, so it looks like the little guy has lots of options to choose from when he starts making stuff. Here’s to hoping that happens sooner rather than later.
