That is it- that is the tip! I finally started to wind from bobbin to bobbin. I take the thread off of the bobbin I need when I am out of empty ones and wind it right on the bobbin winder
to another bobbin from an old machine. Then I just layer
them as I add more. I'm keeping one light and one dark.
Now when I need thread for simple mending or hand sewing I can use which ever thread is available on top of the dark or
light bobbin and I am no longer waisting so much thread. I
am hoping this helps someone and that I was not the only one who hadn't figured out to do this!

I'm sorry. I'll try to write it again differently.
