When I bought my serger, I went a little nuts on at a thread sale and bought about 100 spools of serger thread (2 in each color for the needles, and 4 of each neutral--black, white, taupe, grey for needles and loopers). Instant storage issue. However, I found the perfect divider to fit into drawers for Maxi-Lock thread--the dividers that come in glass bottles of beer.
I found a drawer unit at a garage sale, but I'm sure this would work in other drawers as well, and voila, beautiful (on the outside) and perfect fitting thread storage. The only drawback is that it took me about 2 years to get enough beer inserts. We're not big drinkers, and don't drink soda.

I get a shutterfly login screen when I try to view. However, this sounds like a great idea.

Great idea! For your picture it may be set private because it shows up as a long on screen?
