Earth day and organization

Good morning,

Today is Tuesday, and while I hate to wish my life away I kind of wish it was Thursday. However it is still Tuesday. In the spirit of Earth day and to go along with the household organizing and cleaning effort I have planned a massive fabric organization project.

Armed with some coffee…


So when I say I have a lot of fabric to reorganize I’m really not exaggerating…

One medium size box


Another box….

And this is about a third of the fabric that I need to organize. Some of it I was given, some actually bought from JoAnn’s, but most I picked up second hand or I recycled from unwanted garments etc. I looked up “fabric organization” on the awesome pinterest and came up with a lot of similar themes.

This is one person’s idea

And here is another one

These were all pretty great but the thing is everyone was buying expensive plastic boards or comic book boards or some other bought item. I thought about this and decided that really it was just pieces of cardboard or plastic cut to a certain size. Cue my digging through the recycling…


And cutting boxes, old file folders, and other assorted pieces of cardboard to size.

And here is the first part of my fabric organization effort


I will make another post when I am through with it all and have it on the shelves.

Have a great day!
