I've posted before how I precut my DMC into 8 equal lengths, slip them back into their numbered band and into a bag. When I get to the end of a skein I toss that numbered band into my frog jar and save it. The little short band gets tossed into a giant jar and saved, aren't they pretty? I've always had an idea to one day put these into a clear glass lamp for my studio.
Once I get a lot of the numbered bands saved I will get them out and write down the numbers and go shopping! This way I can replace the floss I've used and I don't miss out on sales because I haven't looked to see which colors I need.
This photo is a bit dark to reduce glare. You can see I have one unopened skein of DMC 160 and one precut skein. I tuck an index card in the bag so it will stand up in my cabinet and it's easier to see the floss. The bags are "Bag-It" by Westex, not Floss-A-Way's. I don't like those because they are covered in red lettering and I like being able to see my floss.
Everyone will be curious! How you do your floss and how you keep track of replacement colors?
