2-Minute Tuesday Tip – Clear Block Organization

2-Minute Tuesday Tips by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com I get a lot of questions about organization and today I want to share with you one of my most recent AH-HA moments.  I love Ah-ha moments.  These are those moments that you are so excited about your new discovery you want to treat yourself to more Stampin’ Up stuff!  lol  Well, I do anyway.

I was struggling with organizing my clear blocks.  Stampin’ Up has a great tote for them but that wasn’t very conducive on my desk.  I wanted all my blocks within easy reach but needed them to have a “place”.  While I was cleaning up one day, I ran across a dollar store item that made clear block storage a dream!  

Stampin' Up Clear Block Organization - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com Stampin' Up Clear Block Organization - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com Here is what my desk looks like.  Before I get going with the video though, let me show you one thing on my desk that I love.  See that tall container in the back, the one with the ribbon on it?  That is my desk trash container.  Another Ah-Ha moment for me.  I miss the trash can with those paper backings from Stampin’ Dimensionals, or that little strip of cut cardstock.  Having this little container on my desk was a brilliant idea.  LOVE it! 

But, moving on to my tip for today… 

If you are unable to see the video, CLICK HERE to view it online.

Is that great or what?  I am THRILLED at my discovery and I couldn’t wait to share it with you.

As I said in the video, the best investment I ever made was several of each of the clear blocks.  The ones are use the most are the Clear Block Starter Bundle (Bock C, D, and H) and it’s a really great deal — you save $4.00!  Need all the blocks?  The big bundle gets you one of everything and you save $12.25!  To order yours, click the pictures below!

    Good grief!!! you have so many blocks, how awesome is that!! This is a great tip, although I don’t have all of those blocks, but it makes perfect sense if I ever venture into buying more than one set.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Your inventiveness never ceases to amaze me! I am going to get me one of those silverware drawers and get mine organized like yours. I did my stamps like yours and I’m finding it so much easier then in alphabetical order. Thanks so much for that tip and for all of them you do Connie. I don’t know what I would do if I hadn’t found your YouTube video quite by accident over a year and a half ago. I case more of your work than you can imagine. Have a blessed holiday season.

    Another great tip, as always. I am assuming the colored papers on the ring are samples of our colors. What black things are on the other ring?

    • Connie says:

      That’s a punch ring. I have all my punches and I use it as a template. Hmm, maybe a 2-Minute Tuesday Tip video idea??? I’m on it!

    Oh my goodness, what a fantastic idea. I like to have all my blocks handy, too. Thanks for sharing the tip of the century. LOL.

    Love the silverware organizer tip! But in looking at the picture of your desktop, I’m wondering what the light blue things are in the foreground? One looks like a stapler, and the other has finger like things. I’m a demonstrator and new to your site. I also am an organizer freak. All your tips are so great! Thank you for all the work you put into your site.

    • Connie says:

      Yes, that’s a stapler and that other thing is weird but it holds paper, postage stamps, whatever. I use it for Stampin Dimensionals and cards. It’s bizarre looking but it’s kinda cool!

  6. Linda Jamme says:

    What a good idea! I do not have near as many blocks as you have so if I bought one it would be filled with a bunch of other goodies.

    Genius!!! love those ah ha moments discovering practical ways to re-purpose items. Mine was using the picture/ scrapbooking storage container with 12 separate small containers to sort pictures inside…(JoAnn’s) I used each of the 12 smaller containers to store my punched and die cut shapes (the ones you showed us how to cut from layers that won’t show. The large container holds my completed cards by category..Now if I can just get the rest organized…
