Bakery containers for storage
The clear plastic containers that come from most supermarket bakery departments make wonderful see-through storage for my gathered laces and other trims. After I roll them, they look like floating roses in the container, and with a rubber band around the container, the attached lid can't flip open, even if I accidentally drop a container. I can conveniently see my stash through all sides, and the containers are easy to stack in storage.
