Door Hanging Storage

Good Evening -

I have a very tiny scraproom and it seems that I have way too much stuff.  LOL  Just ask my DH!!!  Anyway, I have accumulated a bunch of cling stamp sets from here and there and have watched a lot of youtube videos on how to store them.  My problem is that I am a very visual person.  If I put it away, I don't know what I have and I forget about it.  Maybe that has something to do with having too much stuff.  I have a dear friend who recently told me that discluttering has really saved her sanity.  She has gone from a HUGE space to a very SMALL space and she is loving it.  All I can say is I wish I had her will power.  Anyway, I needed more storage space and this is what I came up with and it cost me approximatley $20 give or take.  So this is what you need.
Zip strips and paper clips
3 Over the Door hangers
Wire cubes (taken apart) minus Bella (isn't she just cute)
I use to store my paper in these until I
started storing them in the paperboxes
for shipping (free)
The over the door hangers are from the Dollar Tree.  I added one of the wire frame to 2 hooks and then another one overlaping to the other 2 hooks.  I used the zip ties to attach them together. 
Using the paperclips (100 for $1) I made hooks and attached them to the wire frames
 and added my stamps.  
Here are just a few because I wanted to get this post up yet tonight.
Storing my ribbon I used this method.  I took clothespins from the Dollar Tree (20 for $1) and wrapped my ribbon around them and attached a piece of tape to it.  Then I just hung the clothespins from the wire frame.
Now I can see exactly what I have and how much of it.  I used to store my ribbon in a box with holes so the ribbon slipped through, but it never failed I'd have tiny pieces left over or not enough to cover what I needed.  I really like this method and again, just a few spools because I wanted to get this post up tonight yet.
and here is my over the door wire hanger.

As always, have a great day and god bless.
