    My FQ's are kept in bins and tins (to protect from light and dust) on open shelving.

    I've been having fun rolling my FQ and then tying with about 8" strip of scrap. I then prop them up in a cute container on top of a short bookcase (used for fabric). I keep it away from the window but in plain view as I find it very cheery.

    I bought some cutesy hatbox looking things at Joanns/Michaels, can't remember offhand, and I'm using those. Keeps any dust off and I can shove them under the table if they start getting in the way. I'm debating a cart that I can slide under the table though.

    I use shoe box plastic containers separating them by colors and keep them under my cutting table as I added a shelf for that purpose.

    I picked up one of those wire shelves that is made to hold spices or something inside of your cupboards. I couldn't get my folded material to go in because I have it on Easy Cores, so I just mounted them on the inside of my stash linen type closet backwards. They worked perfectly. I stacked two, but the door would probably hole 4 racks.

    I'm using a shoe organizer. I cleaned up a shoe organizer from our mud room and it fit in my fabric bookshelf perfectly (after removing one shelf). My vintage sheet collection is on the shelf above.

    One hole can hold six jelly rolls! Best of all I can see my stash.

    I have one of these as well that I got at Lowe's. Mine is white and has 25 cubbies instead of just 15. I just bought it a couple of months ago, and it was $34.99. Hope this helps! :c)
