When cutting strips of the same fabric into different widths, I bundle each stack with a ponytail holder. The elastic bands don't fray the fabric edges, and it is easy to slip out one strip at a time as needed. This is especially helpful when taking a precut mystery quilt to class. I also use ponytail holders when bundling like colors for Log Cabin blocks.
