    Zip lock bags with the size written on the bag. Inexpensive, safe, able to be ID'd quickly. Instead of just throwing them in a drawer find a small box and keep the bags in this.

    I purchased a small round plastic container from Walmart that is made for storing sewing needles. It has 3 sections and the top has a hole in it to retrieve the needle. You just turn the top to the desired size and pour the needle out. Like a toothpick holder.

    I use pill reminder boxes - I have removed the lids and they fit perfectly

    I made a mini version of a hanging shoe bag using heavy vinyl (sp) for the pockets and embroidered the sizes and types above each pocket. It hangs on the wall right by my machine.
    Quilt outside of the box!

    I store mine in 2 sandwhich baggies -- one for hand needles one for sewing machine needles.

    Bent broken needles & pins go in an empty pill bottle

    I use sugar holders; like the ones which hold individual packages of Sugar, Splenda, Equal, Sweet n`Low... They are small enough that I can keep one holder at each machine. The plastic needle cases are the same rectangle size as an individual package of Splenda. I can hold about 10 plastic needle cases in each holder.

    I used glass jars to put my sewing machine needles in. I have to many different kinds to sort them, but with them all together I can look for what I want and at the same time take a break from the sewing machine. plus I have to get up and move, good exercise.
