Remember in the pioneer books the moms would always have scrap bags they made quilts out of? Well that idea took over my brain at a young age and since I was about 8 I've been saving the scraps from my fabric for quilts and doll clothes and random little things.
This year when I moved (twice, or thrice, however you want to look at it) I realized that I had TWO HUGE BAGS of itty bitty scraps. And they were all mixed up and jammed in there and I really didn't need half of them.
So I went through, sorted through every single scrap, threw away the ones that were too small to ever do anything with, organized them by color, and gave each color a plastic bag and put them all in a big tub.
It's kind of awesome and super efficient and looks much prettier now too.
