Are you struggling to get organized? Are you still unsure of exactly where to start? When you look around your craft room, do you find yourself getting overwhelmed? Are you constantly asking yourself, “Why is organizing my craft room so difficult?”

Sometimes organizing is all kinds of hard, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Let’s get real for a minute here… Do you think that just having less stuff might be a game changer for you?

Maybe it’s time to grab an empty box and start purging. No cheating, though. This is one of those things that involves being committed.
Why Is Organizing My Craft Room So Difficult?
Do you really need 100+ rolls of washi? What about all the small things that are scattered everywhere? And let’s not forget about the 10-foot pile of patterned paper in the corner?
Whoa! Wait a minute!
One thing that I’ve noticed over and over again (and it’s not necessarily a bad thing) is that lots of us crafty types find inspiration in the simplest of things.
Everyday items get saved because they would be great for a project.
But maybe too much stuff leaves you paralyzed. Maybe you need to slow down the input just a bit.
I’ve talked about input versus output before. If you’re interested, you can read that post.
When it’s all said and done, the only thing that matters is you and your personality.
If you’re not overwhelmed by your stuff then get it organized and get back to creating. If you are, then it’s time to get rid of it.
Take a hard look at your stash and purge what you don’t think you’ll eventually use. If it’s broken or not your style, then get rid of it.
If you bought because you thought you’d use it and now you’re not so sure, pack it up and store it elsewhere for a while.
If you don’t go looking for it in the next few months, then it probably makes sense to donate it.
And that of course brings me to my next topic.
If you’re shopping just for the sake of shopping and not actually using what you’re buying, it’s probably time to find another hobby.
Creative mamas joke around about it all the time, but sometimes buying craft supplies becomes the hobby. If that’s the case, it might be time to re-evaluate.
Do you want to actually make stuff or just spend your time buying it and then organizing it?
Either way, figure out what makes you happy and get to it! You’ve totally got this!
Psst… If you haven’t already, you’re definitely going to want to come hang out with us in our 52 Weeks Facebook group. That’s where we’ll be chatting about the challenges and our creative spaces.
Thanks so much for visiting. Have an awesome week!
