Decluttering and organizing is something I have been doing a lot of lately. With the holidays on their way, I know that I feel better when I have planned and prepared for the season. While not everything can be planned ahead of time, it really helps my sanity when I have things organized. I have been in holiday crafts mode and I thought I would share my tips for organizing holiday craft supplies with Hefty® Slider Bags.
I wanted to share some ways that I keep my holiday craft items sorted and organized with these cool slider bags from Hefty®.
First of all, I love that they are clear so that I can see exactly what is in them. I have my supplies sorted by type so that I can just grab what I need for the craft project. The Hefty® Slider Bags are strong, you can hear them zip close and the strong MaxLock® track design prevents them from opening up and spilling open.
These also help me make the most of my space. I do not have a large craft room or even a designated closet. I have some photo boxes that I use to keep similar supplies together.
For example, here you will see decorative scissors, rhinestones, adhesive, Christmas decorations, washi tape and marker sets all in their own Hefty® Slider Bags.
By storing my supplies in these bags, all of these items now fit side by side in a photo box, just like this.
All of those items are in there and the box still has room because I have maximized the space! It is barely half full. Talk about organizing small spaces! I can grab what I need and go and I do not have to worry about stuff falling out because they are super strong and sturdy thanks to the MaxLock® track design!
Hefty® Slider Bags are available in quart and gallon bag sizes. Just look for the bright Orange boxes. I found mine at Walmart. Check the pricing as Hefty® Slider Bags cost less than Ziploc® Slider Bags, when comparing the same type of bag (freezer/storage) and size (quart/gallon) of the closest price point.
I must say that I use these bags for many other organizing solutions including:
- vacation souvenirs, ticket stubs and mementos
- game pieces
- clothing when traveling
- cords and earphones (seriously the best way to travel)
- planner accessories
- oh and food items too!

I store them near the kitchen counter stove area since this is the place I store leftovers. If you are looking here is a way to save $1 on a package at Walmart.
