Cluttered Stash, Cluttered Mind

Today my stash went from plastic sacks, Rubbermaid bins, and Ziploc bags to this. I can't tell you how much better this made me feel. I even went so far as to label each drawer with what projects are inside.

No more yarn attacking me when I open the door. No more cluelessness as to what I have. Heaven!

I also promised myself that I would not buy any more yarn if all of the drawers are full, and believe me they are FULL.

Yeah for organization! I just went through a lot of my yarn and pulled out some stuff I'm going to donate to someone over at the knittyboard for her knitting group at school. I've still got a bunch though!

Ooooh so nice and neat! I'm always tempted to try something like that but I know that the next day I'd be back to the same old sprawling mess...

Great job on the organization, Amy! It looks so nice and orderly! That needle case/wine bottle holder is SO cool. I remember when you got that as a gift. Such a great idea!

Hope you are well!

wow - what a great system. so far mine are in plastic bags and shoved in a big rubbermaid bin (i need to buy a second box too because the first is almost overflowing). p.s. what a creative idea on the wine bottle container!

Not long ago I invested in a large under-bed bin for my stash. It started full and progressed to crammed full. That was when my yarn diet started, and, like you, I swore I would not buy any more yarn until it wasn't so full. And I've stuck with it...but it's taking a looooong time to knit it down! My will power is waning.... :(

Still, nice to feel organized, isn't it?

Very impressive! I really need to do something like this. Mostly I need to hunt through the apartment and find all the yarn, to at least get it all in one place. Bravo!

What a great idea! My yarn is such a mess, buried in tubs that are hard to sort through. I bet this will inspire you to work with long forgotten yarn, too.
