Pretty and Practical Storage

September 17th 2014

Look what I got yesterday!  Look again, compare to the business cards. These are “mini” storage cubes that can collapse and be totally flat. What’s the perk about that?  Let me explain. I am a VISIONARY: adj. 1. characterized by vision or foresight. 2. Having the nature of fantasies or dreams; illusory. So as I get ready and think ahead to Quilt Market in the Fall and then possibly having my own booth in the Spring (God willing) I thought these caddies are perfect and compact to set up in my booth with patterns or whatever else I want to use them for.  Since they collapse they’ll fit perfectly in my suitcase!

I got them at Target.com and they come in various colors not to mention how absolutely cute they are because they only measure 7 x 7 inches.  I thought this color goes best with the “Summercrafter” theme.  You can see there so many ways to use them!

Then I thought about sorting my scrap disorder

by doing it this way…

It was just the motivation I needed to “weed” through my earliest collection samples in the fabric stash and get rid of all my  non-cotton, non-designer, inventive/inexperienced quilter baby fabrics and discount store selections.

Look how adorable these cubes look on my shelf. I can double them front and back too.

One bin can hold BOM patterns for the whole year! (See on the right below)

And I labeled them easily with those adorable clips my friend gave me. Thanks Amy!

I even have one filled with fabric for my next quilt, so they are really practical.

I think I can keep up with this type of organization.
