    I need to pack up all that I can to put my home on the market and have a whole lot of stuff to store. I don't want anything to get damaged and could sure use your help to protect it all.
    I love this Board. Thank you all very much.

    batting and fabrics can be stored in bags, totes or boxes, it depends on where you are storing them and if critters can get to them...
    Foam I would roll and put into bags :D:D:D

    I would use the plastic totes especially if your storing it where critters can get in it.

    I store my stuff in my basement as it would NEVER all fit upstairs! And I use plastic totes. Works great.

    I use plastic storage totes and put labels on them. The clear totes are great because you can see what's in them. For my fat quarters I bought a storage box by Fons & Porter specifically for fat quarters. I luv it.
