1. Separate Supplies

Designate a cubby, storage bin, or drawer for each type of project to keep necessary supplies together. If you have the space, a worktable with built-in storage keeps everything within reach.

To buy: South Shore Crea craft table, $260; houzz.com.

2. Let It Roll

Any room can become a craft room when your supplies are arranged on a go-anywhere cart. Wheel it into a corner or a closet when not in use.

To buy: Sauder Craft Pro Series craft cart, $305; sauder.com.

3. Arrange Vertically

Hang a pegboard above your desk to hold tools and supplies. As you add to your inventory or your interests change, rearrange the shelves and pegs to suit your needs.

To buy: Caramba Pegboard in natural, $85, and accessories, from $17; gautierstudio.com.

4. Provide Easy Access

A spinning organizer corrals pens, pencils, and other small supplies in a reaching-distance spot right on your work surface.

To buy: Recollections storage desktop carousel, $50; michaels.com.

5. Leave Empty Space

Half-finished projects stashed out of sight may get forgotten and begin to pile up. Instead, reserve visible zones for in-process projects to inspire you to continue working on them.
