Blast from the past

Blast from the past

Sometimes it is nice to look back instead of to the future. I have made lots of YouTube video’s that you might not know about because you haven’t always been a follower. So today I am sharing five video’s from the past that I think you might like from the past years.

Handbag organisation.

This video is not about organising your actual handbags but about organising the things you can put in your handbag in a separate drawer. Every time you grab a handbag you go to this drawer and put in whatever you need that day.

My walking pharmacy

This is a pouch I keep in my handbag with everything I might ever need, some people call it an emergency bag or just-in-case bag, I call it my walking pharmacy and I love this thing!

Filofax A5 Original Yellow

Back in the day I planned in an A5 Filofax, something I can’t imagine nowadays. The only A5 planner I have is used as a recipe book. But I used to love it and I like looking back at old setup videos.

Filofax Personal Ochre Malden

I recently sold this Ochre Malden, it was my favourite Filofax ever and I have loved this planner so much!

Filofax Personal Black Malden & Fluro Pink Original

When I first moved from an A5 to a Personal sized Filofax I used two planners alongside each other.

A craft room reorganisation 

This might sound silly as I have been stuck in bed for 41 days but I really want to reorganise my craft room. I started my craft collection 3,5 years ago with a tall Alex drawer from Ikea. When we moved 3 years ago I got my own craft room so I got more Alex cabinets, a desk and started accumulating more craft supplies. And even though I consider my room pretty organised, there isn’t really any rhyme or reason for anything. I just found a drawer and put stuff in it. All the items in my room have a set place, but the reason for the particular place is unclear.

So as soon as I get out of this bed and feel well enough I am going to take everything -and I mean everything- out of its drawer/cupboard. I want to destash and only keep the items that I really love and use and then find those items a spot that makes sense. I have a table where I journal and plan, so my planning and journaling supplies should be near that table. My hard drives, chargers, drawing tablet and cables should be near my computer and all sorts of paper should be in the same drawer.

I am ordering the famous Ikea RÅSKOG cart this week (if you have never heard of this, go to your country’s Ikea website and look it up) with some bins and I think it’s really going to help me with my organisation. It has wheels so you can move it around the house, so it will be next to my bed until I get better. After that, it will probably be next to my journaling/planning table filled with all my favourite things.

Until I can actually go reorganise my room I will spend hours on Pinterest trying to find some good organisational tips and tricks and in this Facebook group, my friend Kim recently started about craft space organisation.
