Staying organized using minimal accessories is one of my life’s biggest goals. I’m a firm believer in doing more with less, in buying quality over quantity – and in making things instead of buying them whenever possible. But, let’s be honest: some things are too cute to pass up.
Organize Yarn Swatches with DIY Personalized Folders
A few weeks ago, while feeling particularly unorganized, I fell down the Internet rabbit hole and started searching Modcloth and Amazon for stylish office supplies. I stumbled across collections of colorful folders on each site, then glanced at the tragic pile of papers in one of my closets. Ah! There was a solution: A patterned folder for each paper category! And I’d label each folder, too. Win-win.
Simply weave individual swatches of yarn through the tab grooves of a hanging folder, then add the yarn’s important details to a small piece of Washi tape or on a small Post-It. Tape that below the swatch inside the folder. Next, add the project name on the folder tab, and you’re done! File away – and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with clever organization.
