Default What kind of organizers do you use?

I am trying to figure out a way to make my stamping and card making time easy and more convienent for myself. Right now I don't have a specific space where I can set my supplies up and leave them be and can work on them and let them be. Right now I have a tote and a bin that I store all of my supplies in which is not enough. When I am doing my work I either have to sit by the kitchen table or set up a card table. Then when I am not working on cards, etc. I have to remove my supplies. I would like something that's easier to set up and remove. Adventually or hopefully some day I can work something out that's a little more permanent but right now I can't.
Does any one have suggestions?

If you have a place to store them, rolling carts (Iris, sterlite, etc.) work well. I use the Iris carts which are very sturdy and can easily be rolled when full. I work on the kitchen table and all my supplies are in rolling carts that I move into the kitchen when I'm ready to create. I pull things out as I need them and when I'm done I put it all away and roll the carts back into a corner of the spare bedroom (my Mom uses it a few times each month so I can't convert it to a stampin room).

I have two rolling cart hanging file folders for cardstock. My paper has stayed fine placed in there for over a year (doesn't bend out of shape). They are perfect for cardstock. Label each file with the SU name and throw the scraps in the file too!

I have a wooden thing to hold my ink pads and IRis rolling carts (they dont' roll when full of stuff on a carpet) for my stamps. Otherwise, I'm still a mess -- I should clean up after myself more often!!

I used to use the three drawer rolling carts from Target... They might have been the Sterlite brand, I can't remember. I outgrew them though. I now have all of my supplies in smaller three-drawer Sterlite containers (which are very easy to transport and organize) and my stamps are in a big dresser...

Cropper Hopper sells a great rolling cart with hanging folders that fit 12x12 paper. I roll it with me everywhere! I also use iris rolling carts, they hold a ton of stuff and sturdy too.
