Storing assorted cuts

I buy my fabric with quilt ideas in mind, so I keep all of the fabric for those peculiar quilts together. I have a cabinet that I keep orphan/left over yardage fabric in and store it basically by lights and darks, too much to store by color as I'd constantly be rearranging my stacks. And, I usually try to incorporate the orphan/leftover fabric in another quilt idea, to keep the stash down.

I do buy pre-cuts, mostly jelly rolls, or fat quarters, if I like the fabric line, but again, I buy with a quilt plan in mind, so get backing/accent fabric from that same line at the same time. And, as above, I keep it stored together.

I do have Christmas fabric, and keep it separate. But again, the Christmas fabric I have, I been working on building it up for a quilt I have in mind, as I've been really peculiar in the design on the fabric to get what I'm looking to put together. This one has been a couple of years in the planning stage on waiting for the right fabric.
