I know for me, I am always needing to find new ways to store my yarn. With Spring's arrival throughout the northern hemisphere, many people are busy with Spring cleaning. What tips do you have to share about organizing, simplifying and decluttering your yarn stash?

Oh I so badly need to do this. At the moment I have yarn in drawers and carrier bags all over the place. I am on a mission to finish some long outstanding projects before I start anything else lol

I have several UFOs, and even several unstarted projects lurking in my home. One of these days.......
One place to donate yarn that has been decluttered is to religious organizations, like churches and synagogues. Many faiths have prayer shawl or related ministries. By donating yarn, you can encourage someone's spiritual practice, and know that the yarn will likely be turned into a beautiful item that will bring comfort to someone in need.
