    I wanted to organize my fabric stash like they are displayed in the Fabric stores. I looked up Fabric Organizers and found some but they were really expensive so I found a sight for corragated cardboard that sells them in bundles of 50 and 100 200 etc for 33.93 including shipping and handling I got 100 11"x14" pieces that will fit on my shelfs they had all sizes. I can't wait till it gets here to get started on my stash. If you are interested the sight is www.boxforless.com/categories/Corrugated-Cardboard-Sheets

    I did the ruler fold method, can get 2 rows of fabric in my file drawers, and it didn't cost me anything and I didn't have to wait for cardboard to come in the mail. I would rather spend the money on fabric, but whatever works for you.

    Our LQS will give you empty cardboard when they finish the bolt.

    I would worry that the acid in the cardboard might discolor the fabric over time. I know that we, Rocking Chair Quilts, toss out lots of empty bolt. Yo should be able to get some from your LQS.

    When I decided to organize my stash I went to walmart and got their empty bolt holders and cut them to size. I also went to dollar tree and bought foam boards and cut them the size I wanted.
