    So I am re-arranging things due to having a baby on the way. I was looking at plastic storage containers that I could store in a closet. Other than them being clear. Is their a size you have found that works well for folded yardage?

    I use a wooden dresser and some of those roll around plastic drawers (from Target). There are 4 drawers in each. It really depends on how much fabric you are talking about. I do love the dresser even tho it is wood and not see through and it holds quite a bit.

    I prefer the clear plastic drawers.... I hate haveint to move one box to get to another.. Also,I prefer file cabinet size to the larger drawers. Over time the larger drawers tend to sag with the weight of the fabric, and befome difficult to slide open and closed. All of these drawer systems are stackable and come with wheels for ease of moveing, if needed.

    I use the 58 quart size of bins. They have always
    been the right size for me.

    I have floor to ceiling shelves that I got at Ikea eons ago. Perfect for stacking 2 16 qt bins one on the other.
