Useful Tip with Luisa - Project Life/Journaling Station

Hello Divas,
Luisa here... This time am sharing a tip that has been working wonders for me, since I decided to adopt it.
As you know am an "organization junkie" and always trying to find the best way to organize myself and my stuff (maybe I create 50% and organize 50%, lol...). 

Well I have been reading about having "work stations" for the different tasks that as crafters we do, like: stamping, die cutting, etc.  I don't have a big scrapbook room, actually my bedroom is 65% sb room and 35% bedroom, lol...). So I decided to create mini stations for some of the most specific tasks I do, which are: Journaling, Project Life and Embellishments.
I already shared my Project Life little tote, which is the one I carry with me to the living room to create and enjoy my family at the same time.

Today am sharing my JOURNALING / PROJECT LIFE Station!
This one sits in my night table, besides my lamp.  I place it here, because I want to be able to use stuff from it when am writing in my Diary, Weightloss Journal and Inspiration Journal.  If am working in Project Life pages, I can simply move it to my desk.

It all started with this organization box from Walmart ($8 dlls) with dividers.
Plus some journalind materials, such as Smash Products (post- its, flags, tape, journalind books), some general office supplies like labels in different sizes and shapes) some index cards and other fun stuff I found.

And this is the end result:

For now, this has been working wonders for me.  But I know myself and am getting addicted to Project Life and my supplies stash has been growing pretty fast...

What about you?  How you store your supplies?
What you think about creating stations or as me mini-stations?

Hugs and blessings,

Ok, I need to make a trip to Walmart for one of those! I love the organization of it all. And you have quite a few goodies in there too!

Thanks Brenda and Michelle. I love this mini station. The best part is that is small enough to bring it to the living room and start creating...

Michelle, they have it in pink, green and blue also!!!

Oh, I love your organization station! I don't really have any specific stations, but I keep all of my stamping inks and ink applicators etc. in one spot. I like to be able to get my hands on any color ink pad that I want. I also keep my ink markers by the ink pads.
