Organize Your Stuff Challenge (round 6): Week 5-Scraps Update

Hello all,

Last week it was all about Scraps--I had tons of scraps I wasn't using enough in the way i was storing them.

My old system was this:

At first I had use this for few  years but now it just wasn't working for me as I don't think about going there first to see what I have to use on layout plus 6x12 don't fit here. 

I also had tons of additional scraps in various places--boxes, basket wherever I can store them... I went and gather them all up and put them in this box:

After sorting and purging tons of them, I ended up with this:

I recently purchase pre-plan cropper hoppers for my planning layouts however I decide to use them for my scraps--because they have two half pocket on either side to store smaller pieces so they don't get lost. I thought Perfect...
here it is all done--sorted by colors, I have couple empty pockets that I'm planning to use for my project kits to store any leftover scraps.  I'm still looking for smaller container to store these as this container is little too big for those pages. I'm really happy with this and I already find it is working for me as I can just pull one of color group out and go thur to use on layouts or cards.  

this week is focus on Photos-Prints and Digital.  Thanks for reading!

Great idea! It's easier to find what you need when similar colors are together. Thanks for sharing!
