    Great advice Rosie, thanks for going to the time and effort to give us all some really good information 🙂 Hopefully my efforts will get big enough to be able to use it effectively.

    Thank you for sharing these tips, Rosie. Your organisational skills are very impressive.

    • Thanks Rhondda, I can’t take all the credit though because my hubby had a lot to do with getting me organised 🙂

  3. Rosie, Thank you and your hubby for that tip. I love this system. You would be shocked to see my current state of disorganization, and this will be very helpful, both with keeping things organized in my workshop AND with finding the correct item should something sell.

    • It’s great to hear that you found this information helpful. I would love to see a ‘Before’ and ‘After’ photo of your workshop, it would be a great follow-up blog if you would be okay with sharing 🙂 Please do let me know how you go 🙂

  4. This is excellent advice! Thanks to your hubby for helping you and thanks to you, Rosie, for posting this and explaining in such great detail!

  5. Rosie, Could you tell us who makes the blue and black drawer system you are using? It looks perfect to me.

    • Janine, I bought mine from a local $2 shop (similar to the Dollar Tree store in the US I think) many years ago and when I needed more I went back to them with a sample and asked them to source more for me as I was buying in bulk. They came as a set of 8 drawers but I just kept building them up as high as I needed them before putting the top on. I’m sorry I don’t remember what brand they are. If you Google ‘plastic storage drawers’ you may find something suitable in your local area and something with a variety of sizes may be helpful too. Good luck with your search and let me know how you go with reorganizing your stock. 🙂

  6. Oh my goodness, this is amazing! I have shallow drawers like that (not sure if you have this brand in Australia, but it’s Sterilite here in the US) My problem with them is the drawers as I get to the bottom, no matter how lightweight the stuff is inside, they tend to stick when I want to open them. I only have like 8-9 high and I think 4-5 across. I sell mostly at craft fairs, and this sure does help organize the shoes I sell better (I buy my shoes and accessories wholesale and leave the sewing for the fun stuff like outfits!) I was simply curious as to how much you put in a drawer so you don’t have the weight overloaded since you have what looks like at least 20 or more tall. Thanks Rosie, you always have the best ideas, thanks to your hubby too! This makes me want to reorganize and get even more drawers, only my problem is that there’s no married kid in this family who has left the nest LOL. I can’t really trust putting these drawers on the floor of my basement so mine are currently on a table. 🙂

    • Hi Tari, we do have the Sterilite brand here in Australia but that is not the brand I use. I don’t know the brand but I can tell you each shelf of the smaller drawers I have is about 12″ (31 cm) wide, 4″ (10 cm) high and 16″ (40 cm) deep and they came in a stack of 8 but I just kept building them up until I got to the height that I wanted. They were ‘flat packed’ so to speak and I had to put them together. I did purchase them a long time ago and after buying the initial ones, I had to get my local store to source more for me and he was happy to do that as I purchased quite a few. I got them from a $2 shop which I believe is similar to your Dollar Tree stores. I can have more than 20 pairs in a drawer and don’t have a problem opening them as long as I don’t have too many jammed in. I do hope you find something suitable as it does make things much easier. 🙂

      • Ooo thanks for the dimensions, those are definitely quite a bit larger and deeper than mine. I’m sure I might be able to find something similar here. It would be so awesome if Dollar Tree would have something like that, but I won’t get my hopes up! 😉 I’ll have to snoop around at Walmart lol.

    Hi Rosie
    Can you tell me where you buy the shoes and accessories in bulk. I live in Canada but still have to buy most of my items from the States. I haven’t been able to find the things I need up here. Our fabric stores don’t carry the small items we need for doll clothes. Thanks so much.
    Patsy

    • Hi Patsy, I too have to buy my shoes and accessories from American wholesalers and have them shipped to Australia which can become quite expensive. My best suggestion is to Google Wholesale doll clothes and visit the various websites. You will have to apply for a wholesale account and some have minimum order quantities. All the best with your business adventure 🙂

  8. Great idea. My challenge is we’re downsizing to an RV and although I’ll have a good sewing area. The amount of space and how to store fabric and ready made to go.
    Ideas would be helpful!

    • Hmm, that is a challenge Sherrie. Let’s hope some other readers have experience here and can share their ideas 🙂
