organising stash?
I organized my wool/sock yarn stash today. Put skeins in zip-lock bags (Target generic.)

I keep my stash in lock top bins...

How do you hide (lol) your stash? Bins? Shelves? Vacuum bags?

Is it sad my sock/wool fits in three 20 gal plus a couple of ten or so gallon?

I have a lot of acrylic (a lot was given to me.) That's in like three gallon bins I think (a friend destashed a crapload of acrylic to me two years ago, slowly using it up!)

I amalgamated my cotton stash into a 20 gallon bin, bagged it up. Freed up two smaller bins - using those for project bags, beads, stitch markers, interchangeable needles/hooks blah blah. Put my pretty bamboo straight needles into a heavy/pretty mug on our dresser.

Hope it's legible.

My best yarn stash is in our closet. My huge stash of acrylic is binned in the basement. I also have a quantity of odd ribbon yarn someone gave me. I really need to use it for something!

You'd better get knitting! Looks organized though! It's hard when you have a lot!

I actually feel that my stash of non- acrylic is pitiful. The sock yarn bin isn't even full.
