    You might try leaving the lids cracked just a little.

    About half of my fabric is in my closet on shelves - the other half are in paper boxes - from reams of copy paper - the materials I don't use often, like holidays or corduroy, etc I keep in the boxes, stacked anywhere I can shove them lol.

    Thanks everyone - I'll try some of these ideas... except metal shelves in the closet - I don't have a closet!! ;) I have so far to go to get it all organized, by the time I'm done maybe there'll be something new 'out there'!! ;)

    I hang large pieces of fabric on plastic hangers in the closet. Keeps it from wrinkling so much.

    You might try making large pillowcases to store your fabric in. You can always put zippers on them for easy storage.

    I use a small opened box of arm and hammer bakling soda in the bottom of the tote...I know it's there so it never gets tipped.
