The Great Scraps Reorg

I have been wanting to reorganize my scraps for a long time now, as the 2 drawers that are used all the time were crammed full. My scraps were starting to get all bent up.
This is what it looked like before I started...
Top drawer...Bazzill only scraps. It wouldn't even close anymore!
Second drawer...Designer printed paper only, also, barely closing.
Third drawer...old scraps from crappy paper I used to buy, and cheap-o cs I don't use anymore.
Fourth drawer...Ephemera or memorabilia, do I really need a drawer for this stuff??
Bottom books and things to alter. I can move this stuff right? This is only half of said items!! Maybe I should do more minis!!
.....organize, organize, organize.....
The new and improved, but not a whole lot different SCRAPS DRAWERS!!!
You can see they are labeled for quick searching, and less confusion! I organized my manufacturer, as that is usually how I go digging for paper. It works for me!
First drawer...Basic Grey and October Afternoon scraps. I have as many of these scraps, as I do the rest of all the pp!!
Second drawer...Pink Paislee, Sassafras Lass, Cosmo Cricket, Crate Paper, and Dream Street.
Third drawer...American Crafts, Making Memories, Bo Bunny, and Scenic Route.
Fourth drawer...other printed paper, but still designer paper.
Bottom drawer...Bazzill cs, separated by size and put in Ziploc baggies (thanks Jingle for the awesome idea, hope you don't mind). The bigger pieces, are in a large Ziploc in my Cropper Hoppers with my other Bazzill, along with Hambly transparencies and lace cardstock scraps.
Here are the Ziplocs, showing the degree of my separation.
That is it! I hope it works, I have faith it will. What did I do with all that other paper in the middle drawer that I never use???? I can't get rid of it, so it is currently in another large Ziploc baggie, stuffed next to the drawer system, with everything else I don't know what to do with, lol! I redid another little drawer system, combined a couple drawers, and put all my minis/alterables in 2 drawers.
Oh yeah, Walgreens had a one day special on online prints, 20 FREE! You know I was scraping the bottom of the barrel on my photos, so Cliff (by Cliff I mean me) and I both took advantage of that, so now I have 40 new photos to scrap!! WOO HOO!
That is all for now, look out soon for a post with more challenges I have gotten done!
