This clever keeping of your different needles I found on a Facebookgroup: Remove the black insert from an old CD case and you can see your needles, they use a small room and you have not to search for a special needle.

Thank you for posting a picture. My needles are organized, except the box of 100 is separate! I'm always looking for the next idea. I just buy organizers at the Salvation Army and toss them in the basement till I have a need, then I rummage through the supplies. I'm ahead about 6 notebooks at 50 cents apiece, which new at the office supply were $7. Have found several sorters for papers which worked really nicely for precut stabilizers. Two rectangular waste cans hold my rolls of stabilizers - one is for stable woven fabrics and one for stretch. A pot lid rack holds my assortment of rulers upright, for quick grabbing.

About 20 years ago I bought, three, two drawer, storage units for my DVD movies, each one holds 100 discs in individual slip covers, like a filing system.
They're a great compact system and so easy to find any movie..... the only problem was that I was left with 300 empty plastic cases!!!!
When I started looking for ways to use all the plastic holders, my supply of needles was the first thing I thought of, they're so easy to find the size and type.

Sadly I still have a whole cabinet drawer FULL of empty DVD cases because I haven't found any other way to use them. Anyone want some? :-)

Have been doing that for years And I added a piece of shelf liner to prevent them sliding all over the case. Not that I need that now, I need a third case.
