This is a great idea - I've been doing this and it works super! I keep all my scraps!

I have three of these things so far, and I love them! I use one for each color family. If you go shopping for these, try to find ones that actually have bottoms in each section (so the little teeny scraps don't get all commingled; I hate when that happens!). You may pay a little more, but it's worth it. I also recommend that you not buy one that has colored dividers (ooo! big mistake, because one of mine has translucent plastic dividers which look very pretty, but it's difficult to tell which color is in there....). Otherwise, this is a super system. I used to have my scraps in craft keepers.

I bought 4 beautiful containers like these at WM. They are plastic, and have butterflies on the outside. Each one is a lovely different pastel color. I put twelve file folders in each one to eliminate the comingling problem. Then I bought a set of labels on ebay, labeled my folders, and labeled the top of each file keeper with a color family.
