tip #17 have a container to collect cut down scraps as you work

I cut down scraps as I work on projects. My standard sizes: squares cut 2 1/2, 2, and 1 1/2 inches and rectangles 2 1/2 by 4 1/2 and 1 1/2 by 2 inches.
I drop them into this enamel container on my cutting table, and when it fills, I sort into sizes and light or dark. From here they go into bins of like sizes.
I do keep solids and 30's repros separate, and sometimes plaids.
