I did something very similarly years ago, but with quart size zip-lock bags. Punched a hole in one corner and re-forced the holes, and put the whole set on a ring. I can take along my smaller scraps that I use for punches or my Quickutz dies easily to crops. Paper that does not fit into the bag goes into an old Cropper hopper hanging file box that is 8 1/2 x 11 size folders. Anything longer and at least 2" wide goes back into the general filing system.

Yes, I do use my scraps, although I have so many I'm not sure I'll ever get through them. I kept them in an expandable bill paying thingy (that's a technical term - LOL) until today, when I went through them all and organized them into hanging file folders in my desk drawer. I feel so much better because now everything is actually back in with the color it's supposed to be instead of being so full it's all mixed together. I think this will help me to keep them under control again and be able to really use them.
