    I do not have many but those I have left over from projects I store them either folded or loosely rolled in a clear shoe box.

    Good question...I have only purchased two jelly rolls (forget when) and have yet to use either of them. Hopefully, I will find a project that will use up the whole JR. Good luck.

    This is my way as well, held on with a single clip clothes pin so they don't slip off.

    Re-roll to the best of my ability and place original ribbon/with label back around them. Then place in a ziploc bag and back into the drawer they go.

    Ziploc bag to keep them together. I like to see all of the colors in the loose roll. I can take out a few if I want to use them. If I have used most of the roll, I will put left overs in the scrap bags. I keep the bags of scraps in a laundry basket. I do find it hard to utilize strips efficiently. I do better using charms or 10 inch squares.

    Same with me, I use a rubber band to keep my rolls intact.

    I have never seen those long boxes from Artbin before. Where did you purchase them?

    Thank you, everyone, for the great ideas. I do have some 12 x 12" Artbin boxes that are not being used, so while a have a lot of the JRs, I will put them in there. Then when I use up most of them, they'll go into the plastic bags as you suggested. I really appreciate all of the helpful suggestions.

    I have the jelly roll bins like Pahega. I saw them at Hobby Lobby but I ordered mine on line somewhere. I dont use them unless I'm going to workshop. LOL What I use in my sewing room is this:

    Velvet covered scarf hangers: There are all different designs of them. I need some that have wider holes for the strips to lay perfectly flat. I can take the hanger off the hook and the strips do not fall off.
