I can't remember who posted a while back about the bucket of chipboard at Wal-Mart for $14.99, but thanks for posting it. I got the bucket, and I am SO excited to use it after looking at all the pieces.
But...since they're not on sheets and they're just in the tub - over 1,300 pieces, anyone have some good suggestions on how I can organize all the pieces? There's letters, numbers, shapes, phrases, etc., but I just feel so overwhelmed, and like I couldn't possibly know what all is in there.
Do you think getting some cheap plastic food storage containers and then sort of categorizing them would work? What do you all do to organize your chipboard. I'd especially like to hear from those of you who got the big bucket!
I'd leave it in the bucket and root through it when I want to use it. But that's me, I'm organized when it comes to some things, but 1300 pieces would overwhelm me so I'd leave it be.

Well I just organized all my scrap stuff the other day because I had a big pile of stuff I had bought but hadn't put away. I have alot of raw chipboard and just had them in plastic shoe boxes. I ended up putting them in the slider ziploc bags, I have numbers, alpha, punctuation, shapes, tags, frames. When I need to use them all I will have to do is pull out that one bag and go searching thru that instead of all. If you don't want them in bags I like your idea. I think those throw away bowls w/lids would work great. Like the glad ones.
I have my chipboard in ziplock bags right now, but I have so many baby food plastic containers I've saved, that I think they would work really well!

I have my chipboard in those small craft ziploc bags. They're super cheap (like $1.50 for 100 or something)
