What do you do with a drunken stash???

A drunken stash you say! I am sure I am not the only one with a drunken stash.

You know the characteristics - when everyone else in the room can clearly that the stash has had enough, it says - just one more, one more can't hurt. But you know that it will never stop at one more.

Then when you have something you want it to do, it cannot be found. If you insist that it gives up what you want - it disgorges its contents all over the floor. But will it clean up its own mess? Never. It is still there 3 days later waiting for you to clean it all up again.

OK - tell me I am not the only one with a drunken stash.

So what do you do - the stash was in a total mess yesterday, and it had spewed its contents all over the floor. Pity the floor was Bob's office too. He was none to happy.

So what did I do - remember what my Mama did with her stash - though it was never a drunken stash - she would roll up the material to store it. Hey that is a good idea. It compresses the material into a smaller area, and if you stacked them right, you could see everything on the pile. Also. going through the pile would mean that it would not get into a complete mess.

So here is my sober stash. Lets see how long that lasts. As you can see, there really is NO more room for more...

Rolling is something I hadn't thought of before. I bought a plastic chopping board from IKEA and use it as a folding guide for my fabric so they end up all the same size and stack very easily.

Getting that one fabric from the bottom of the pile, though, can be problematic...

Hmmm....I'm sure I've never had a drunken stash yet.....but I know your darling has! I have half empty cupboards here. Should I see how quickly I can fill them?

My darling with a drunken stash. Ohhh - never (not much). That is why we get on - we understand each other so well... We do try and get better though. Don't know when I will ever use all that material though...
