If you have a chance to get a hold of hanging hampers from JoAnn Fabrics, buy up as many as you need to keep the scrap piles under control. You can just hang them right up in your closet! I find it helpful to sort between washed and unwashed scraps.

Thanks for the tip! If my scrap pile outgrows my two trunks(I bought a bunch so it isn't my scraps) I'll think about it.

Just wish my closet was under control !! These tips are great ! I need a person to come in and clean me out !!!
Thanks for the tip. I will keep it in my file.
