Sneaky Steals: Organization Edition

Did you know that you can order BULK items from the DOLLAR TREE Website? I didn't know that was even an option till a few years ago. After multiple trips to my local store, (trying to find more of one of my favorite storage solutions,) the cute gal at checkout asked me if I found everything that I was looking for? I, of course had to answer with a sarcastic No, and showed her the boxes I was after. She smiled and said that they always sell out quick but explained that I could order them in bulk on their website. Pretty sure my eyes got so big at learning that information that she could see inside my skull. As soon as I got home I did a deep dive on their website and placed an order that day! This might have been a risky thing for a craft supply hoarder like my self to find out, but oh boy did it help me get my craft supplies organized fast and cheap!

But for reals... if you have seen my workroom lately then it should come as no surprise that I take organizing my supplies seriously! My stash of beads, bits and bobbles can get a little overwhelming at times, but over the years I've figured out not only a logical way to store my supplies, but also a beautiful way! I firmly believe that my stash shouldn't be hidden away in a shame closet, but displayed proudly like an art installation. 

Like many craft-a-holics I LOVE a good bead box, but I've recently discovered a few hidden gems at the Dollar Tree that I like even better! So when I found out I could order them in bulk on their website it was definitely a "take my money" situation!
