First of all, it only looks this clean for picture purposes. Secondly, it is a hodge podge and mix/match of organization stuff. Besides the IKEA items, most of the rest were free (like the tables), from garage sales (my CD holders), or repurposed from something else (spice rack became embellishment holder). My toughest challenge (besides keeping it neat) is where to store growing collection of stamps and dies...the CDs work for now but I can see where it will be a problem. Speaking of growing piles...where do you keep your scraps? In cleaning to take this picture, I found a box of scraps that I hadn't touched since we moved here over a year ago.

Mine has never been that clean. For scraps, I have a couple of CD size crates from the dollar store. I cut my scraps to fit in there and store in ROYGBIV order in (also cut down) file folders. I have a couple pattern folders for stripes and such, which frankly I don't go to much, but it is great if I only need a small scrap of red to punch a heart or something similar.

Love your space! I am scrunched up in the corner of my laundry room. I do have pegboard for my punches and scissors, etc., and two special holders for ink pads. For scraps, I have larger ones in alphabetical order in hanging file folders in a plastic folder tote, and smaller ones in zip lock bags in a basket on my table, ready for punches or if I just need a hint of color. Seems to work for me.
