The photo is clearly worth a thousand words.
The real problem, though, may not be evident. You might think the problem is my obsession with ribbon, but that is not the problem. The problem is what to do with all of this ribbon. I managed to consolidate several boxes (well, 2) and have the ribbon organized by types and colors. I think I can fit (hide) all of it under my bed.
See, that is much better. I feel better about it in any case.
