Fabric Storage...

I need many  ways I am sure!!! 

BUT, for now I am trying to think of ways to store my fabric. I have it on top of my daddy's WW II footlocker ( which I have covered twice to use- yellow in college and now it is blue) in the closet in my sewing room. This was fine when I first started quilting because I did not have much fabric and I could color coordinate it.

 NOW....well all I can say
 is that I probably do not have as much as many of you but it has grown!!

Baskets, metal bins, plastic drawers...

What is your best advice?

The rest of my sewing room is ok. It functions well for me and also
has a recliner and tv so I also have a great "get away!!"

Please let me hear what you use
and help me out!!

You can look at this site to see if your state is participating in this program which 
helps stop child abuse.

OR you might have one you prefer.
It even lists infant head circumference sizes for you.
