For example, I use the clamps that my husband and I bought at Sears for wood working to hold on my buttons while the glue dries. I can just clamp that on and work on something else while it dries.
I also bought my containers for eyelets and brads in the fishing department. The same thing in the craft department was nearly twice as much. I also bought a large one to store my cartridges in and I couldn't be happier. I also buy any plastic containers at Walmart, as opposed to the "craft" ones at Michael's or Hobby Lobby. Today, I saw one at Joann's for nearly $7 that was only $3 at Walmart.
I'd rather save my money on the organizing so I can spend my money on cartridges, paper and ribbon! Like my newest cartridge, Disney Classics, which I used last night to make two cards.
(Ignore the non-editted pictures, I didn't feel like doing them tonight.)
