The hanging folders are great because if I know exactly what I need, I can just go to the tab and pull a scrap. If I need to browse the selection, I can pull the whole folder and leaf through it like a book.
Green folders up front house solid papers and card stock. All my solids are separated by color family:
- Red & Pink
- Orange & Peach
- Floral & Paisley
- Novelty & Background
- Stripes & Plaids
- Spring & Summer
Well, that's my system. I'm sure I seem quite the type A to you now, but like I said, having your scraps organized means you are much more likely to actually use them.
