Ribbon Re-Organization (again)

Inspired by Lily's ribbon sorting, I decided it was time to
work on mine again. I have tried many many many different
ways to store my ribbon. The neat little spools, embroidery
floss rings and bags, compartmented boxes etc failed
because I disovered that I hated to continually have to
rewrap the ribbon. I tried the clear acrylic paint cans and
they looked beautiful, I loved being able to just dump the
pile of ribbon back in when I was done BUT storage and
transporting them anywhere was a nightmare. So, using
an idea I saw elsewhere, I am now trying the very low tech,
inexpensive shoe holder. I sorted the ribbon into quart size
bags, folded them over and stuffed them in the slots.
Hopefully this ends my quest for the perfect ribbon storage!

There you go! Great idea! I have to have my ribbon somewhere that I can see it, otherwise I won't be as likely to use it!
