    sometimes I have smaller scraps. I use them on cards, paperpiecings or just a piece on a LO. How do you store your scraps?

    freezer bags actually work pretty good to keep stuff together in my room. Because the freezer bags are heavy duty, and for the most part they are cheap (about 25 for less than 2 dollars) I stick a lot of my extra scraps in them. You can write on the bags with a sharpie marker and even stack them in a rubbermaid tote. Since they ley flat you really do not have to worry about the stuff bending.

    Cheap alternative to buying some of the more expensive things designed for that type of stuff.

    I have all mine in a folder. you can use a folder or a page protector what ever you have. I try to cut then in to shapes before putting them in the folder so its like they are useable not just junk pieces.

    I have a 2 inch binder that I keep all my scraps that are smaller than 8 1/2 x 11. In the binder I have heavy duty page protectors and I arrange then according to the colors of the rainbow, then neutrals. This system seems to work best for me until it gets too full, then I go through and weed out anything I haven't used in a long time. I use my scraps often, scrapbook paper is too expensive to just toss!

    I use an accordian file and store my scraps according to color. However, I do like the idea of using freezer bags. I think that I will put my scraps into freezer bags and then into its respective slot in my accordian file. This way I don't have to dig to the bottom of the file, I can just pull out the freezer bag. Great idea

    Thanks, Rosalie, CA

    I have some of my scraps in a tray for now. But I have seen to save a coffee can or pant can to store them in. Or organize a file drawer as you would normal paperwork and file the scraps by color.

    I have gotten so bad about not using my scraps. I need to go on a scrap using card making frenzie. Anyway, I store mine in a two gallon zip lock bag, that is also where I keep all my number and letter stickers, besides puttin them in a sticker book, which I hate and never use anymore, I can't think of an easier way. I just dig through (not very productive) and find what I need.

    I like the idea of using freezer bags. Do you arrange your scraps by size?
