I don’t know about you, but there is something I just love about organizing. And the companies that make bins, baskets, boxes, bags and buckets know this and rely on this. Today I want to share with you my newest find for organizing my Kreinik threads. About a year ago I “de-kitted” my cross stitch kits because I realized that I was buying duplicates of beads (a future post) and krenik threads. These things are not cheap. So I put them in an Art Bin box that has spindles for spools of thread. Since the Kreinik threads are so thin, there was so much empty space being wasted and I have been on the look out for a new way to organize my threads. So here is what I found over the weekend:
This cute little pink box (had to have it in pink although it does come in other colors) that is called the “Really Useful Box”. I found it at an office store and they come in many shapes and sizes from a very small box that will fit in the palm of your hand all the way up to great big storage bins. This one happens to be the 1.7 litre size and is quite perfect!
After putting them in the box, in numerical order, by type, there was a little wiggle room and I didn’t want them to get all jumbled up. So I took some thin card board ( I get it in the 12 x 12 paper packs I purchase from Stampin’ Up!) and made some dividers. I cut 10 strips 5 5/8″ x 2″ and they worked perfectly! I still have a little room to grow before I purchase another one. I even cut some extra dividers in preparation for the next box 🙂
It has a clear lid so that I can see what is inside without having to take the lid off. This will come in handy when I spill over to the second box. I think this is the perfect box for my Kreinik threads and I don’t anticipate having to re-organize them again in the future. I just love it when an organization problem is solved.
