    I use a plastic ice cube tray to hold the various sizes of needles in a drawer. Works for me.

    This was made for me on the Secret Pal swap by sewdamncute. There are actually 4 'pages'. Since this was taken, I've labelled all the compartments.
    I love the fact that I can organise part-used needle and also know exactly what needle I've got in my machine by putting a coloured a pin in the correct section!

    I use a hanging jewelry organizer. It has many small, clear see-through pockets on both sides.....perfect for holding sewing machine needle packets!

    Each different size/type has it's own little compartment.
    I store mine in a similar way - a recipe box with dividers indicating size/type.

    I use a plastic box with hinged lid that came filled with jelly beans. Perfect for all the needle packages and it was free.
    It is clear and fits in my drawer with my sewing machine.

    I meant to say it fits in the drawer of my sewing machine cabinet.

    I have a couple plastic boxes with dividers and permanently attached lids. They are maybe 12 inches by 8 inches or so. The spaces are small, a bit wider than a needle 5-pack and deep enough for standing up maybe 10 packages. There is enough room to get my fingers in there. I keep needles sorted by size and type. I keep the boxes in the sewing table drawer, and this works very well. Check Walmart or a hobby store.
