Sewing, quilting, stamping and crafts! Add them all together, and you've got the storage challenge of a lifetime!
The fabric stash reproduces stealthily, outside the light of day, until closets, containers and cupboards overflow. Craft supplies multiply like a population of rabbits. Add the tools and gizmos required by each activity, and it's enough to overwhelm even the most organized.
The verdict is in: a big house is not the answer to the clutter problem.
Biggest culprit: CEO's sewing area. One small room. Two large closets face one another in the hall outside with facing mirrors. Perfect for storing fabric and supplies, and just the thing for checking fit and marking hems!
Inexpensive, stiff-bristled paint brushes--in a variety of widths--are a great addition to the cleaning tote. Use them to dust the tops of books, whisk dirt from baseboards and corners, clean dust from blinds, and remove crumbs from upholstery.
