Reader Hack: A Great Kids' Art Supply Storage Solution

art cabinet1I’ve been told I’m a certifiable neat freak. Please forgive me; it’s most likely a result of my upbringing and my mother, Mother Immaculate. Just ask my older sister; she’s even neater than me.

As neat as I may be, there are definitely times when messy is good — like when my kids are finger-painting and making paper-mache.

As my kids got older, the art supplies became more numerous. Soon I had art supplies all over the kitchen and they began to overtake the top of my refrigerator.

I had to come up with a solution.

I even separated regular pens, fancy pens, pencils, erasers and glue sticks. It may not be ridiculously neat inside, but when the doors are shut everything looks clean.
