Yarn Storage

We have a bonus child that has been living with us for about a year and a half to two years. So I’m a little short on room. Eventually I’ll be able to shuffle bedrooms around and get my crafting room. Just not anytime in the next month. 

I had been storing my yarn in laundry baskets. And on the floor next to them. And under the dresser. And in a backpack. I’m sure you’re getting the picture. 

I really didn’t want to spend a lot of money on something that’s going to be temporary. My husband wanted it more organized. 

This is what we came up with. The bins came from Menards. I have a few finished projects, my current wip and tools in the top bin. The yarn is organized in a way that makes sense to me. I can just glance at it and see what I have. Because the bins have depth they are all stacked several skeins deep. 


It’s not pretty but it is functional, was reasonably priced, and I can live with it until I get a permanent space to set up how I like.
