Thread Storage

 

My local JoAnne’s shop recently had all of their threads on sale for 50% off, so I took my Gutermann list in and filled in the gaps.  I had also bought some Sulky Blendables from my local shop and I was in desperate need of thread storage.

I have used the Sulky Storage Boxes for my Gutermann threads and really like that I can open them up flat and see all of the threads at one time. 

fullsize I have two of these mostly filled, so need to buy one more to finish out my collection.  I will wait until I get a Hancock’s online coupon before I order it.

Now comes the decision of  how to store all of the other odd sized spools of thread.  I bought one thread holder (for $25), but it was big and bulky. 

Instead, I remembered a blog post that I read and went to Walmart and bought a plastic storage box that is used for Matchbox Cars.

For $6 I got a wonderful box that holds lots of threads…..

_4175020

….AND….this is only one side….there is another equally large set of compartments on the other side of the box.

I AM THRILLED!!!!!

I love it when you can get things that help to organise those unruly threads. I bought another storage container for my beads on Saturday and now they are all back into some kind of order where I can at least see what I have got.
