To keep my threads/scraps neat and tidy I keep an empty "square" tissue box at my sewing station. It's lightweight and can be emptied from time to time. It's also decorative and when it gets ragged from use or dirty, simply throw it away and get a new one. I feel I am better organized when I don't have all those cut threads/scraps surrounding me. I sometimes put it in my lap when working and just drop the threads in.

Good idea. I have a collection of misc. containers. Having just one makes more sense

This is a very good idea. I've been using my scrapbooking scrap catcher that attaches to my tabletop with a small vice. I just empty the plastic bag that fits in the vice frame when it's full.
