One day I got frustrated searching through my scraps for some specific pieces I wanted to use in a scrappy quilt. I knew I had them in my stash but wasn't able to find them. I went out and purchased plastic bins that have snap lids, separated my scraps into the bins by color, and labeled the front of each bin. This has been a huge time-saver for me!
