Before I reorganized my sewing room I had a large box where I would throw my many rolls of stabilizer in. I was always having to pull all of the out just to find the one I needed. Now I store all of my stabilizer in this shoe organizer and can always see at a glance what I have and where it is.
The canvas totes are used to store notions and projects. Before I would buy fabrics and notions for specific projects but would forget I bought it or couldn't find it when I needed it. Now, as I purchase things for projects I store all of it in a tote and go right to it when I need it.
