    Another great idea! Thanks again.

    I bought a couple of the hard pencil case holders after all of the back to school sales were over and all school supplies were on clearance. I think I got each one for a quarter. We have one for markers, one for crayons and one for pencils and rulers. They work great and they stack easily in the closet. Plus they are hard plastic, so very durable. Mine are going on their 3rd year. Not bad for a quarter.

    Years ago, I bought a Pampered Chef Tool Turnabout for my kitchen. It just took up too much valuable counter space. So we now use it as a craft organizer. Even paint brushes and chalk go here too!

    I, too, use the hard pencil holder cases for this purpose. One for markers, one for pencils, and one for crayons….they hold up very well and are easy for the kids to get in and out of our craft drawer.

    We have ours stored in old plastic baby wipe containers. One for crayons & one for markers.

    My daughter loves art and drawing is a favorite for her so knowing she likes Pepsi, I found an old wooden Pepsi pop bottle holder that holds many items. I put a place mat of her fav color on the bottom so it would not scratch things and sanded the top a little. This sits on her desk to pull whatever she needs in or out easily.

    Right now my daughter has an old desk in her room that has several draws in it. Each drawer is geared towards different things: 1st drawer for lip gloss, hair stuff, etc..; 2nd drawer for play jewelry/smaller dress up things; 3rd drawer for makers, colors, coloring books, etc..; 4th drawer for puzzles, card games, etc..

    So far this has worked but I’m going to have to go through her crayon/marker drawer & throw away anything that broken or dried out. Especially since school is out, she’s bringing home all her used & unused supplies.

    I also use the Pampered Chef Turn-about for my kids – and it works great, but with a 4 and 7 year old, and another baby on the way, I’m going to need to find a higher place to keep this stuff for the kids. I really love this idea, Jill, because it could be put away in a drawer or closet or easily transported to another room!

      Robin, that’s the best thing about this. It can easily be carried from one room to another.
