Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated! I'm clearing out my art room and am trying to inventory and organize my art supplies. My interests/hobbies are:
- acrylic painting (how do I organize my paints? and brushes? -- by size?) -- have got the canvas pretty much under control
- calligraphy/lettering (how do organize markers: chisel, brush, other/regular? -- by color or type?
- simple scrapbooking (although I use my other supplies for this)
Also, how do I organize my paper? by type (wt., texture) or color?

I purchased a spinning rack that has tons of slots for my acrylics. I also have those shoe box size plastic bins for my "other paints". I have found it very useful to have pegboard on the walls with different attachments to hold a variety of different things. Peg board doesn't sound pretty but since you are creative, you can paint it any color you like. I have used the plastic bins and old coffee cans (with holes punched in) hanging from the pegboard hooks. I usually arrange things by color so that there is no need to hunt around. I arrange my paint brushes in oversized coffee cups and tall jars; markers in glass jars so you can see through it. Just root around your home or your friends and look in their recycling bin or garage sale castoffs. I use a bin that goes under the bed for my papers because I don't use them often. Bins with lids help to protect your materials so that odors and moisture don't get to them.
