UGH!!!! It drives me crazy, so over the years I decided to create a full proof system.. and it's WORKING!!! Even hubby can find pens and tape when he needs them. :)
Scissors in another.
On top.. our cardstock... useful in the making of minecraft figures, and other papercraft items. Useful to for making unit study/modified colour lap books.
I've added two rolls of tape drawers, and a paper cutting drawer. oh.. and I think I have stencils drawer in there somewhere too.
The sticker and paper drawers remain (though their supplies are getting reduced). I do not consider that a bad thing.
The thing I like about plastic drawers is they are portable, it's easy enough to move them from room to room, it's easy to shift drawers around as you don't then have to shift everything from one drawer to another.. you just move it! :)
So tell me.. how do you store things such as legos, pens, pencils and what not. What have you done to ease the craziness?
