Cutting scraps

As many of you know, I've been trying to organize my scraps a little better.  I've been cutting them into 10", 5", 2-1/2" strips and squares, and 1-1/2" strips.  I purchased a 3 drawer plastic container from WalMart, so I put the 10", 5", and the 2-1/2" strips in those drawers.  I have a cardboard box for my flannel 2-1/2" strips.  I've made several quilts and still have tons.  It's been much easier to try and use up scraps since they're cut to sizes that so many quilts call for.  Plus, it's easier to match them when it's all cut to size and put in color stacks.  It does seem like they multiple matter how many scrap quilts I make...I still have tons of scraps.
