I have tried many ways to organize my thread and bobbins. I had a wooden sewing box with pegs for thread, a peg hanger for the wall, throwing it all in one large Rubbermaid box and none of those were great. I didn't like the thread being out in the open on the pegs because of dust. Trying to find the color you need in one large box was no fun either. I found these wonderful craft boxes at Hobby Lobby for only $1.99 each.
I coordinated my thread stash by color and wrote on the end of each box which colors were included.
You may have noticed the bobbins included in the space with some of the threads. After completing a sewing project, if I have thread left on the bobbin, I cover the bobbin with a small terry pony tail holder and place in the same section with the matching thread. I purchase the pony tail holders at Dollar Tree. Target and Walmart also sell them. They make the best bobbin thread cover. They are cheap and easy to use. I have been using this method for years and love that I don't have to contend with tangled threads.
I store the extra pony tail holder/bobbin covers in a small plastic container with a lid.
I use the same boxes for my embroidery thread and use the same concept of color organizing. I have three boxes of thread. I love pulling those boxes out and opening them up to choose what colors I will use to be crafty and creative.
