    Wouln't this be great for organizing small things

    I think you could store all those small bits and pieces in here and have them fingertip available...

    I have one that I use for sewing and one I use for my jewelry. They work great. My mom has had one for years for her sewing supplies.

    You can find some great storage solutions at Home Depot, Lowes, or in the fishing aisle at Walmart. Many of the same styles of storage boxes that you'd find in a craft aisle are available in these places, often at much lower prices.

    One year for Christmas my family gave me a big fishing tackle box to use for all my bits and pieces. Very handy! Originally it was intended for storing my embroidery floss for counted cross stitch (which I haven't done since bifocals became necessary).

    Very good idea. I have two huge tackle boxes from my father that also hold a lot of stuff too.

    I have two of this type on my dresser, one full of earings and drawers of holiday jewlery and then on the other side of the dresser that one has necklaces in different colors in drawers.

    Oh that would never work for me, it would require me putting something away!

    I used one of these for years to organize sewing stuff, then when DH built me a cabinet, I put all the little drawers
    from it into a big shallow drawer to keep somewhat organized.

    I have one smaller than this, with wider drawers for thread! they are great for bobbins, specialty threads, etc.

    I agree - these are great for holding small stuff ....I keep my sewing machine tools, rotary blades, extra bobbins, fancy or novelty buttons, machine needles etc etc in it. Love it!

    I've used smaller ones but really like the number of drawers on this one. Never thought about using them for jewelry though but it sounds like a good idea.

    I had two of those for special lego parts when DS were young. Now where are those units?
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    DH gave me one of the 60 drawer units from Lowes for my birthday a few years ago. One of his best ideas yet. It sits right beside my sewing machine filled with buttons, snaps, elastic, machine feet, all sorts of things. Keep thinking someday I might even label the drawers so it's even easier to find stuff.

    They are---I have one large one like your picture shows with all my buttons in it---each drawer is a different color and my dymo label tells what they are. I have another one with jewelry supplies in it---separated by chains, clasps, color etc.
    Well worth the money and by the way, buy them at Wal Mart or one of the large Hardware stores. Cheaper than JoAnnns
