Another great way for space and time saving is to store your ribbons correctly. Over the years I have built up a huge collection of ribbon, Alot has been stored in tins. If I buy new ribbons and haven't had the time to store them correctly they usually end up in a large zip lock bag.
but when I have the chance I cut up card board sheets to the correct size of my drawers and then they end up stored like this. Much easier to see what you have and to find the correct colour.
A much nicer way to store them and so easy to find the colour, type I want for a particular project.
