Getting organized this month? I like using things I already have in new ways, particularly in my sewing space:
I have zippers in a vase and in a glass jar:
I use bowls for yarn:
I use a not-so-old wooden ladder as shelving for my scrap-made fabric bins:
I got the directions for the bins from the book, Sunday Morning Quilts. I made them all with scraps and used cardboard from cereal boxes for the sides and bottoms. If I made them again, I’d use heavier cardboard to give them more stability.
I have an old Coca-Cola crate for holding fat-eighths and fat quarters:
At one time in my life, these crates were used to return glass Coca-Cola bottles to the store for a new set of bottles. No one does this anymore.
IV. Wash tubs
For overflow scraps, I have this wash tub. It’s great for parties, too — just add ice and beverages.

Happy sorting and storing,

Wanda, I love all of the above. I have an old galvanized tub that was my father in-law’s and it is painted this great light turqoise color. I never have thought about bringing it indoors. Thanks for the idea.
Light turquoise — sounds lovely.
Thanks for sharing your storage tipps, I like your bins on the ladder.
