I am visually impaired and have things all over the place. I don't have much room, but I really need a way to keep everything at EC reach and organized for when I need it. I have all of the coloring books, paper, in the cupboard, but have everything else scattered around. Some are in a basket, pipe cleaners, etc. but they fall out. And everything is mixed in the basket, so I have to go through it every time I need something.

I have something similar to this drawer, I've written on in marker pen what's in each section, and keep loose stuff like yours pipecleaners in just plastic file wallets in the draws

I have a lot more, but I can't find it. I recently had some things that came with an art magazine. They came in a pouch, and the pouch broke. So they went everywhere. What could I do with this?

Bubble, did you have to set it up when it arrived? Was it easy to do or didn't need screws etc.?

Wasn't set up but no screws tools or anything required, you just slot the legs into the base then put a draw in and repeat for the other two, then done!

Quick question, what do you use chalk inside the house? I was told it makes a huge mess. I have it, but have never used it. I have a whiteboard and very thick pens which are usually use that should be would you? I have some plastic tablecloth for birthday parties that I bought from pound land and are use them if I am doing anything that might be hard to clean up, but not sure about chalk.

Chalk doesn't make that much mess, we have a huge chalkboard wall on one side of kitchen and just a tiny bit of dust which is easily hoovered or wiped up, so probably just need to give the tablecloth a quick wipe afterwards.
