What is this notion used for?
I bought 2 of these boxes for thread storage. One was about $25 on Amazon and then I found one ~$22 with 50% off at Joann's. These boxes are not very space efficient, but they have excellent visibility. They store "64 Large and small Sulky snap-end spools, plus... the small and next larger size spools of most major brands." I had no trouble with spools, and even the shorter cones fit (Robinson-Anton). With the cones, you can't place them next to each other but a normal sized spool will squeeze onto the next "exclusive lifting tab" over. Just make sure you get the Universal one if you have more than the smaller Sulky/Mettler/Gutterman spools. My bobbins also fit, so on shorter spools, the bobbin can be placed with the spool, which is very helpful. It is wonderful that each spool is held in place so you can open it without anything falling out.

Did you get your money's worth after the purchase?
I don't know that I would pay full price, but I do think that $25 is a fair price, and I have threads I've forgotten about, so it may keep me from purchasing duplicates. So it is a money saver, right? :)
Is this notion easily available?
Overstock.com and Amazon are both good sources, and I found one at Joann's at 50% off.
Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. And you can get them partially filled with 30 wt. Sulky Cotton Blendables or Rayon- I have seen good deals on Overstock.com.
