I have a large collection of jelly rolls, but it looks more like a tangled mess.  Anyone have any ideas on how to store these strips in such a way they are easy to find when you need a certain color or print?

How about from skirt hangers?  Or draped over a regular hanger.

I love storage containers of all kinds.  Gallon size glass jars would be a great way to store them and be able to see what was in it and a lid to keep them clean.  They have clear plastic containers as well that would serve the same thing.  I love to go up instead of out.  Tall and slender instead of spread out.

I have a compartmented shoe holder that hangs from the closet pole. I have a different compartment for different colors. Works so great.

Maybe a wire clothes hanger and use clothes pins to pin several on a hanger.

they used to make racks  out of dowels that you could hang strips on.  i used it for my log cabin quilts.    its long since gone by the way , but i found it very useful at the time.

Have you considered a tie hanger?  Would be just about the right width, and you could store like colours on each arm.  I've heard it's best not to use plastic storage boxes/ jars especially if you live in a humid climate as mold can get in.

I use plastic containers and Ziploc bags all the time, but then, we don't know what humidity is here in Nevada.

I use the plastic containers that strawberries come in.  They are just the right size and are clear so that you can see what is in them.  The containers are also light weight and easily stacked.

Loretta, this is a great suggestion. Those clear shoe boxes only work for a short while and then it gets all discombobulated. I don't have wall space to hang things but I do have shelves and cubbies.
