What ideas from the different days did you use? Organizing paper by rainbow order, sorting scraps by color, a ribbon organization system.
What is the oldest item you found? Some old gel pens.
What is something you found and completely forgot you had and canít wait to put to use? Some themed buttons.
What is something you found and completely forgot you had and canít believe you even bought in the first place? Some patterned paper.
Did you buy anything new during this challenge and if so, what? Yes, some latch containers, some cropper hopper scrap paper organizers, and some ribbon spools (that aren't here yet).
What was your most creative contribution to your new space? None yet.
What re purposed items (if any) are now in your scrap space? None yet.
Did you go on the field trips posted? If so, what did you find for $1 (or at the dollar store) and craigslist? I have checked Craigslist, but haven't found anything.
Is there anything you still need to work on? I still need to organize my ribbon/fibers and sort my patterned paper scraps.

For those waiting to organize their space....

What is holding you back from organizing now? Waiting for my scrappy room to get finished....carpet, trim and duct work.
What are some ideas from this challenge that you plan to use when you do organize? I have already sorted my paper and have yet to do my ribbon/fibers. I have also come up with a neater way to store my stamps. And of course, decorating.
What are your plans for your space? I am planning on moving my 2 desks back into my scrappy room and am hoping to replace my 2 cupboards with 2 5-shelf book cases (to give me a little more vertical storage and a little more motivation to keep my scrappy stuff organized since you will be able to see it).
What works for you now, and what would you like to improve? I definitely need to improve on putting stuff away when I am done with it and am hoping that by having a more organized space that I will be more inspired to do so. I think the think that works best for me at the moment is using my silverware caddy for all my most used tools (scissors, photo splints, clear ruler, pens, pencils, cricut spatula, etc.).

Here is my scrappy room at the moment (Finally have my ceiling and light!!):

Here is my temporary storage for my most used scrappy things (in the closet under the stairs):

My new scrap paper organizers with paper sorted by rainbow color:

Here is more temporary storage, but for the things I don't use too much (in our storage room):

My stamps organized neatly in latch boxes (there are 5 total):

My current scrappy space - big mess as I just finished my scrapbuilders page and we just ate dinner:
