I like to organize my stuff in plastic containers shoe box size and label them. I have a Wilton supply box that I keep all my regularly used items in and everything else goes into its own container. I have a multi drawer cart my stand mixer is on and I also store my regularly used tips and cake decorating tools in. This is a little bit of what I have and how I organize it  hope that helps :) 56256d188c7b9.jpeg

Cheap clear plastic bins are you friend! I get mine when the seasonal ones go on clearance (usually for half off). I have all my chocolate molds in one bin, cookie cutters in another, tips/bags in another one, etc etc. And they all sit on a cheap plastic free-standing shelf in the closet. Those cheap bins are great for organizing, it's how I organize my other craft stuff too! :D

First you buy the house next door, then you put in floor to ceiling shelving, then you buy 900 plastic storage boxes (clear) and a label maker.  Then you organize.

After you are organized, you hire someone to live next door (in the smallest room) and their job is to clean, wash dishes, tips, and put everything BACK in the plastic storage boxes and shelves that have been labeled after you bake or make chocolate goodies.


you sacrifice the closet in your guest room and hope for the best

@Apti  that's great :-)

I have one of these for most stuff:

The rest (dummies, board, turntable etc) take up a sizeable chunk of my guest room... :-(

We took the spare bed out of the guest room and bought some good sturdy shelving from Wally World to line the walls. I bought 9 milk crates, turned them on their sides and secured them together with zip ties and scewed them to the wall. These are what hold my heavier supplies (sugars, flour, corn starch, tubs of gumpaste, etc.) Everything else is stacked on the shelves in plastic bins purchased from the dollar store. I also have a set of cabinets that I moved in there to hold all of my cake plates, serving pieces, etc.

It also helps that this room is right next to my kitchen! Thinking about taking out the wall, actually!

Since it's hard or impossible to post photos on CC right now, I created a thread with lots of photos on the Wilton forum:  How to Organize Your Stuff 

The method (clear plastic boxes placed in zones) is very similar to the posts above, but I also show photos of the dreaded "creep" and what happens when you let your organization slip.   For bulk chocolate purchases, I use empty ice cream containers that stack.
