    I just bought 12 plastic shoe boxes at Canadian Tire for 5 dollars for 6 ...will store my fat quarters in by color ...it will be a job sortings them but what a joy when it will be done.

    What a fun chore to have on a Saturday! I love reogranzing my fabric! One year, (before I had a little one) we had a blizzard. I was the only one excited. I made a fire and some tea and dumped all my fabric into a big pile and redid all of the drawers. Oh, that was the best day.

    Until the next day when I had to shovel out. :(

    Have fun!

    Here is a sample of what I store my fabric and individual projects in. I only have about 10 boxes in this photo. I've moved most of them to my studio.

    I got a bunch of empty bolt cardboard from Joann's when I was there last. going to cut into 4ths and fold around so I can stand it in bookcases. I am going to get a clear vinyl shower curtain and hang that in front so it stays dust free and I can then see what I have without digging in totes.

    I cleaned out and organized my stash on Thursday -- it looks so much better, I just hope I keep it neat and tidy. In the process, I think I broke my little toe when I kicked one of the containers! Didn't plan on that!

    well got all my cardboard cut into 4ths. now just need to get started to wrap it on it and put into bookcase. I know I don't have enough bookcase room so will have dd coming on Sep 2nd and will go to Menards to find some bookcases on sale or else the laminated boards to make our own with shelving and the little metal dowels that hold the shelves up. can get floor to ceiling ones then if we made our own.

    Oh, I do love the idea of the clear shower curtains. I have my fabrics on the wire rack shelves and the curtains will be just perfect! Thanks so much for the idea!

    Sounds like a great idea to me. I love a well organized space.
