    I had this problem with my bookcases for my computer and photo books. I took out one of the removeable shelves, went to Home Depot and had them to cut me more shelves. Problem solved. You can even put one on top of the non-removeable shelf when it has one. This was great when I went to organize my fabric. I bought more of those pegs to install the shelves and put them closer together and it made organizine the fabric so much easier. The stacks of fabric aren't as high and you can break down the color/scheme into better managabel stacks. No tall stacks trying to get the fabric from the bottom anymore. I think my shelves are only about 8 in or so apart.

    When the guild I belong to has their quilt show, we have one section of "second hand treasures." Member donate magazines and we bundle them up and sell them for $1.00 for 12. They go like hot cakes and people can pick them up so cheap and check magazine they don't have subscriptions for to see if they might be interested in buying. Everyone loves it. We have all kinds of things that are donated and believe me we have very little left at the end of the show. Usually just very old patterns (clothes) left. Then we donate to Goodwill or like store.

    I put what I wanted to keep in sheet protectors and place in a binder as well.
    I used to follow this procedure as well until I found that I had too many binders! So I took all of my sheet protectors out of my notebooks and placed them into a small 3 drawer file cabinet on wheels and divided the articles and patterns up into hanging file folders with tabs labeled: Quilting Tips; Binding; Machine Quilting; Hand Quilting; Kids Quilts; Male quilts; etc. My file cabinet fits right underneath my work table on one end where I have quick, easy access to all my favorite quilt patterns and articles!

    I take out the patterns I want to try and put them in page protectors inside a three-ring binder. I pull them out when I'm ready to make them and move them to a folder of patterns I've used.

    I use 3 ring binders and tear the patterns out. I have a binder for each category... kids, Christmas, applique and so on. I use plastic pages to hold each pattern and it's easy to flip through.

    Buried Under My Stash up in Canada!
    I moved a few years ago and had to get rid of alot of my stuff. I kept all my Quilters Newsletter which is my favorite and donated all the rest (10 years worth) to a thrift store. We recently bought a new house and at long last I have my own room. I bought two floor to ceiling bookcases for all my books and magazines. I also limit myself to my favorite quilt magazine.
    Quilt outside of the box!
