Welcome to Frugal Fridays week #19

I thought I'd talk about more organizing again this week, since I have been doing some more of that in my scrapbook area in the past few weeks. Quite a few years ago when I was really into the craft of painting (I painted anything that didn't move)-mostly wooden projects.and lots of misc ornaments, I collected many bottles of acrylic paints. And when it became overwhelming I started to organize them into shoe boxes and that became to many boxes, then I ran across this paint storage organizer at Michael's and had to have it. I can't remember the exact price, but I used there 40% coupon I'm sure or bought it when it was on sale and paid about $!9.00 for it. Another one of those great storage deals and I have used it every since.
This paint rack is on a revolving base so it spins and holds 80 bottles on each side so a total of 160 containers-That's a lot of paint. Each section where a bottle rests is 1 1/2" x 1 1/2' so you could also put bottles of spray mists- stickles, glues, glitter bottles- all kinds of misc items could be stored  in these compartments (which  I might get another rack to do this with). As you can see I have kinda organized my bottles in color sections to make it easier to find and compare colors when I need them.

And as far as my painting supplies like brushes I put them in this lazy susan organizer which has several different sized compartments on a shelf in my cabinet , so I can grab this when I need  to do some painting, 
chalking or stenciling on my layouts or altered projects. You can find this organizer in Walmart-also Pampered Chef has one (expensive) and I believe Tupperware sells something similar to this also (which has a lifetime guarantee). This lazy Susan container is great to have at your work station/table with all your handy tools and supplies to do your every day layouts, also great to store markers and pens in-your name it this would help out in any craftroom.Well thanks for stopping by my Frugal Fridays and see you again next week. Enjoy the last few weeks of summer.
