Get Organized


I've been trying to think of a good way to organize my oil paints. They were all in a large bin and I was constantly pawing through them and not finding what I was looking for. The other day, at Big Lots, I noticed this plastic 3 drawer unit for about $5. I bought it for organizing my oils.

I have different color groups in different drawers. Top is yellows, sienna, white; middle is oranges, reds, black, browns; bottom is greens, blues, and purples.

It's a simple way of organizing all those pesky tubes of paint and it really works. I'm going to get another one for my acrylic paints.

Leave it to you miss Carol to find such a wonderful, but simple solution! I have been pondering this dilema for awhile now...I had all my paints separated in boxes...but they take up too much room...I'm off to BIG LOTS...you get the brilliance prize today!

I know exactly what you are talking about! I now use heavy duty zip lock bags, one for each color family. Organization sure helps eliminate wasted time.
Thanks for the tip Carol!
