Default Plano boxes for organization!

I was reading online that someone discovered the Plano boxes for organizing their ME threads. I need something more to put mine in as they multiply like bunnies! So, like any other quilter wife, I send my hubby off to work at the sporting goods store with some thread in tow to check out the sizes. I have plenty of Plano storage in my sewing room for hand embroidery thread and other things already.

While researching it online, I found out that they actually make storage for crafts....sewing trollys, containers specifically for thread and all that! It is listed on their website under the Creative Options tab. Or just google creative options storage!

I found what will work perfect for me===always do! However, I probably stick with the fishing ones vs the crafty only because my hubby works for a sporting goods store and gets an awesome discount.....

Check other departments when you are shopping for the Plano boxes...they are often cheaper in the fishing aisle, and very similar compartments for some of them.

been using them since 1998! The old matchbox car holders work well...but you can't really find them any more!

I checked out the Plano site and some of the thread ones are the same size as the fishing ones. My hubby brought me home some tonight and they were cheaper than walmart....he only had to pay about half price.
