Have you ever picked up a jewelry (or for something else small) organizer at a thrift store since it was a great deal and you knew you would find a good use for it someday? Well, I have in the past and I finally determined a great use for one of them.
When I reorganized the sewing/craft, etc room I found this one buried in a cupboard. Since I had just been looking at my small spools of thread and trying to figure out the best way to organize them (partly so I knew what I had and could get to them easily) I had a light bulb moment. And this is what I came up with:
This works perfectly for me since I had bought the Gutermann 26 spool thread (from JoAnn Fabrics on sale) so I had one or two spools of a bunch of different colors.
When I am sewing I can take it out and hang it on the cupboard door handle and see the options that I have.
