Place your smaller specialty rulers in sheet protectors, along with the instructions on how to use them. Place them in a binder to keep them all in one place.
Finally, sounds like a easy way to corral all of them.

Great tip Copycat. I will definitely be rearranging my rulers in the near future.

I use the notebook pouches like these for rulers. You can store in a notebook or upright in a magazine holder.
Someday, I will make nicer labels for them.

I also like these to hold current projects, notepads, notebooks, etc.

I buy the colored highlighter page tabs to use on my rulers. I place one just outside the line I need to cut on. Makes finding those lines easier and I make fewer miscuts. I also buy a pack of children's paintbrushes to use for machine cleaning. Plus all the other goodies mentioned previously.

I went to Target yesterday and I wandered through the school supplies. I couldn't believe the same items were double the Walmart price. The book holders were $3 and the very same one at Walmart were .98 Same label and colors. I went to Walmart and bought several of them. They are great to hold magazines upright.

I use mechanical pencils, regular number 3's, a good pencil sharpener, notebook paper, compass, plastic sleeves for paper, hole punches for drafted patterns, erasers, binders, theme notebooks for notes and ideas, paper scissors, dividers with the title tabs, plastic sleeves that have a flap on top to hold machine embroidery cards and instructions in a binder. elbow (crook-neck) desk lamp, computer, printer, cd player, exacto knife, pencil holders and those plastic and metal roll-around drawer shelves and stationary ones too. Bookshelves. Also, basket organizers for cd's, drawer organizers to round up those little things and don't forget the extra electrical cords and breakers for safe plug in of the machines. I am sure there are others I use, but, really if I find it in school supplies and I have a use for it, it comes with me to the sewing room.

Oh clip board and a typing stand come in handy too. Also, permanent markers.
