MOSAIC GROUT STORAGE/ORGANIZATION
If you enjoy mosaics like I do – chances are you may have several bags of different colored grout lying around. Last year, I organized my mosaic supplies in the garage and put my grout bags in a large plastic tub. Before putting them away, I took snack size ziplocs and poured a few spoon-fulls of grout into each bag and labeled them with a letter. Then I wrote the same letter on the corresponding bag where the grout came from. All these went into a larger ziploc bag.
Now when I’m deciding on grout for my project – I just pull out my packet of ziploc bags and compare colors against my project. Once I make a decision on a color, it’s as easy as pulling out the bag by letter. I found this is much better than digging through heavy bags of grout in my garage and guessing whether that was the color I wanted.
