I have many bins of fabric, that I expect "someday I might use". Like five giant bins! I am finally taking steps to donate that fabric to family and friends who can actually use it.
I was collecting tons of corks and am making a concerted effort right now to USE them all in crafts and to get rid of them.
Lisa, what i do with my corks is full up a quart zippie, write Crafting Supplies on it with a sharpie, and drop them off at Goodwill. They are happy to take them and sell them for like 2 dollars for the bag.
I mention this b/c as a wine drinker, you are NEVER going to use up all your corks.
I just add my corks to a pretty clear vase - it is pretty as decoration - and when it is full, I bag em and donate them.
As for fabric, I hope making me some prayer flags will be helpful! lol.
But really, those can be bagged, or taped with masking tape into bundles, and brought to thrift stores too. The craft sections of thrift stores are so much fun to pick through. I know lots of people who head straight to the craft sections to see what they have.
