I don’t have a lot of storage space for crafting so I have always been able to keep my stash moderate for just about any hobby that I have been involved in. The same goes for crocheting. I have a simple, 2 shelf bookcase where I keep my yarn. I like to keep it in plastic bags to keep it organized and clean. Recently I switched over from smaller storage bags to the jumbo zipper storage bags.
These bags are perfect since they hold about 6 of the 3-4 oz. skeins and stack nicely on the shelves. I definitely wanted to be better organized since I am trying to stock up a little bit because my financial situation may be changing very soon. Less money = less or zero yarn purchases. I have been searching out sales and clearances on my favorite or interesting yarns. I have been able to get some Red Heart Designer Sport and Lion Brand Cotton Ease at Michaels for only $1.99 each and my favorite Red Heart Eco-Ways was on sale at AC Moore for $2.44 (reg. $3.49). I will be checking out one more Michaels tomorrow for clearance yarn and then I am putting myself in yarn buying time out. :p
