Storage Share - Scraps

So this is how I store my solid colour scraps, in hanging folders in a box bought at Walmart. This works great for me. In the tag section of each folder, I put a piece of cardstock indicating the colour range in that specific folder so when I pull it out, I can see all the different shades I have. I normally only keep scraps that are bigger than 4" x 6". Anything smaller than that, although it kills me, I throw out. This decision came about a while back when I had a bunch of smaller pieces that were just cluttering up my space in the box and in the end I wasn't really using them.
My printed scraps are another story. At the moment they are all thrown into this drawer, but this is not working for me at all. In fact, it is the most painful thing I have in my craft room right now. The problem is that I'm not too sure how I want to organise this. Do I want to organise them by colour or by theme? In both cases there are some that overlap and there in lies my problem. So, if any of you crafty ladies/gents has found a solution for storing your printed scraps, won't you please be so kind as to share it with me? I really would appreciate your help with this.
