One Man's Trash...

Our local humane society, for many years, sold Christmas cards, displayed on this rack. When it was no longer needed, it was headed for the dumpster. Well as a crafter, I had different plans, and rescued this for my fabrics! I put all my fat quarters, and fabric less than a yard, into zip lock baggies, and now they are visible on my turn around rack, perfect for quickly finding exactly what I need for my current projects. It fits perfectly in the corner, and I love the awesome convenience! Now I have to get the rest of the fabrics in bins put on. I may need another rack!

That works great! Actually I threw away some of these also, hard to believe that I actually threw something away but I did. How organised that is!

How great is that! Love the organization of it. Anything that will help us be more organized is a good thing. Don't you just love finding something free that makes your life more organized!

Smart Lady!
It never ceases to amaze me what people throw out as trash.
"Never say never" is my motto.
But then on the other hand if somebody didn't toss it you wouldn't have caught it.
So lets say thank you to the trash pile.
Have a good week.
