I have 19+ of those 66 gal Rubbermaid totes filled with my stash, plus 3 laundry hampers and 7 collapsible baskets. I also have 10 XXL Ziploc bags filled with yarn related stuff. It's sad to say but I rent a 5x10 storage unit for what stash doesn't fit in my apartment. This also does not count what is in my car trunk or in my briefcase or purse.

I don't have much of a stash, but keep what I do have in a cute wicker basket. I have to keep it on a shelf because otherwise my cat will take every skein out of the basket. He doesn't play with them, just takes them out of the basket.

I don't have that much stash yet, so I store it in plastic bags, every brand of yarn in a different bag

I dont have much of a stash, but keep mine, in ziploc bags, with the patterns id choose for each one, in a big rubbermaid container. That way i can see exactly what i have. The only problem im having is with straigh needles, dont know where to put them!!! (i dont use them anymore...)
ps. ive seen some stash from the other members that are just amazing!!! they have rooms for it, and even use excell to keep track of their yarn!!!

I've been destashing for the past year, and other than sock yarns, I've been buying only waht I need for a specific project. I'm down to one 18-gal rubbermaid storage bin. can't get the lid on it, but I'm down to one bin. I used to have 4.

I'm one of those people with a stash that knitters point their husbands to and say "See? It could be worse." And this is how I store it.
