...for motivating me to get my fabric organized. I have been working on organiziing this weekend and I figured it has taken me about 2 hours per bin. 2 bins down, 6 to go. I've been marking on each fabric as I fold it approx how many yards of ea. fabric I have. I don't know what it is about this time of year (cold and wet outside?) that keeps us indoors and tidying up our nests. My daughter sent before and after of her pantry! Enjoy and don't look at the rest of my mess!

Green and Yellow/Orange bins done

Great organizing so far. Keep up the good work. Love your clear storage bins and shelving. Where did you find such a great organizing system?

Thanks ladies. The shelving and bins are from IKEA. The shelves are called EXPEDIT and the bins that fit in them are LEKMAN. They come in different sizes but this is as big as I could get in my closet.

Great job organizing, can you come do mine, and oh by the way, we don't have an Ikea here or anywhere close that I know of, so could you bring those with you. LOL
