    Some pretty fats in there - your fall line? Great idea and you can just pull the container out. I have mine neatly stacked, but have to pull them out and usually drop them when I do!

    I also use the plastic storage units, but the stackable ones and also the rolling cart type. I label the outside as to the color or theme inside and just pull out the drawer and voila!

    Okay, okay, okay. I've resisted feeling the need to organize my stash even after all the threads that have discussed this. For some reason, seeing your color-related FQs has nudged me just over the edge. It made me think about my FQs and how nice it would be to see them organized and visible like this. Guess what I'll be doing tomorrow?

    Thanks for showing us. I have been hunting a way to store them but I would have never thought of that.
