    You might try a crafts store that sells beads. There are so many options for storing beads. Also try the aisle where the embroidery floss and perle cotton thread is sold. One more idea is to ask the clerk or associate where else they might have storage containers for small items.

    Walmart sells a labeler with tape that is pretty affordable and looks very neat and organized. I have labeled all the storage containers in my studio with one. I do suggest that you use the white tape. The clear does not work for me because the background shows through and it's hard to read.

    I have separate boxes for the different types of sewing I do. There's a box of machine embroidery things and the machine embroidery foot is in there. There's a box for my quilting things and the quilting feet are in there. Then there's a box for regular sewing, and that's where all the rest of the machine feet live.

    Mine are resting more or less comfortably under the foot tray in the machine. Except the walking foot. I think I will get an accessory box to keep all the goodies handy.

    I bought some tool organziners. I bought about 10 of these things. I have one for buttons, one for sequins, one for beads, etc, and one for sewing feet... The size of the " squares " are changable by little dividers that slide in and out. making the squares longer. I made labels for all my feet and taped the label into the bottom of each square. I love it... so far it's the best thing I have done in my sewing room!!!
    Wow! That's a great idea! :-P

    I HAVE A CLEAR PLASTIC BOX THAT I GOT AT HARBOR FREIGHT WITH SEVERAL COMPARTMENT IN IT. JUST OPEN THE LID AND THERE THEY ALL ARE. ON TOP OF THE LID..JUST OVER THE SQUARE COMPARTMENT I WRITE WHAT FOOT IT IS. WORKS GREAT.

    I have the feet that came with my machine and my quarter inch piecing foot in the storage compartment of my machine. I keep other feet that I have purchased in the top drawer of my sewing machine cabinet. I leave them in the packaging with the instructions because some of them I use so seldom that I need the pictures/instructions. I have a list of all my feet in the bottom of my sewing machine compartment. The LQS I occasionally take classes at is very good about telling us ahead of time about any specialty feet we might need in the class. If I need to take another foot I can just toss it into my sewing basket.
