|Thanks to Crafty Staci for writing this tutorial|
What I'm here to talk to you about today is another system I ran across while reading Totally Tutorials. She referenced a great tutorial made by Staci at Crafty Staci. This tutorial just amazed me and made me think, why didn't I think of that! But alas, we can't always be rock stars. Today Staci wins that prize! Thank you so much for putting this together for us!
Just as a brief summary before I send you over to Crafty Staci. She uses 3x5 cards to track the fabric she purchases, recording the price, yardage purchased, if it was on sale (and sale price), date purchased, whom she purchased from, and finally any additional notes for that particular fabric. More creatively, she also includes a swatch of the fabric on each card. Personally I think this is the best piece of advice she offers in her tutorial. As many of you know, I do track my fabric in my inventory on my spreadsheet, but sometimes I don't always remember what the description I write down refers to in my actual fabric inventory.
Do any of you others have a similar system? I'd love to hear your versions! I think this system or something similar would be great for both fabric and yarn. Looks like I have some work ahead of me on this. Happy organizing!
