Getting My Craft Closet Organized: Part One (small Home/ BIG IDEAS)

My craft closet had been seriously neglected this past year and needed a lot of love and attention. A couple years ago, I changed our hallway coat closet into a combined craft closet and storage for our floor cleaners. This worked for a little while, but it wasn’t long before things seemed to multiply and replicate themselves. The vacuum cleaner and floor cleaner needed to find a new home and I needed to get serious about getting this space in order. It's now organized and it feels like a huge accomplishment! (The rest of the craft closet will be revealed in my next post.)
My biggest frustration with the closet was that I had to store half of my gift wrapping supplies and fabric in another room. Now, I can store it all in one place.
These bins make it easy to get to everything since they have drop down doors.
The large-sized bin is perfect for fitting all my gift bags, tissue paper and Christmas cards.
Beside the bins, I have room to store my rolls of gift wrap, contact paper and ribbon.
Much easier on the eyes, don't you think?

    Where did you get your bins with drop down doors? I could do use these and they’d make it so much easier to not have to pull others off the top to get to the One you need.

    I love this, but I don't have even half this amount of space for my craft supplies. I literally have a corner of the main room, and a small cabinet in our tv console. I would love ideas on how to better organise for that.
