Thrifty Thursday...String Storage

Welcome to another Thrifty Thursday...using what we have around the house (or super cheap things) to make our lives a little easier.

Today, it's string storage. I know, trivial, but we all have string right? Well, here's the new string idea in my sewing room...mounted on the wall.

We all have baskets around the house, but if not, these are from The Dollar Tree guessed it...$1.00.

The baskets hold your balls of string. It's easy to see, contains them without the balls going every where and the baskets could hold more than one ball too.

I don't have small children around my house, so I hooked scissors on the basket for easy cutting!

The holes in these baskets allows for the string to be threaded through...just pull as much as you need and cut!! The rolls of string stay inside the baskets.

Easy peasy!

Hope you have a Thrifty Thursday,

  2. Great idea and those baskets are a real bargain!

  3. I am trying to come up with something for my 81 balls of Pearl Cotton and have an idea... I am going in to town today for groceries and a post office run and will be looking for the ingredients to pull it off. If I make it work, I will post it and show you. :)

    Love all of your ideas.

  4. Forget how practical this storage is, it's gorgeous! I just love using wire baskets to store and orgnanize. You can see other ideas here :

  5. For a buck those are really cute baskets!

  6. what a great idea!! I wonder if I have room in my craft room for something like this...

  7. Dollar Tree?! I hope ours has them 'cause that is a darling idea and those are good looking baskets!

  8. That is a great idea for string. I do use baskets for my wall storage, in my sewing room.
    Nice to have it where I can see it and keep it off the floor.


  9. Definitely a do-able project for me. Simple yet effective. Thanks for sharing!

  10. LOVE this idea Karen. I have twine all tangled up and it's such a pain - this is brilliant.

  12. now what don't tell me these people are now using your great site as free advertising grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  13. This is another very good idea !
    Merci Karen,

  14. Such a simple thing can make all the difference. I think I am going to put my yarn balls in mine too, thanks for the tip! I sure hope my dollar tree has the same baskets!

  15. This is such a PERFECT idea!! LOVE IT!

  16. I'm gonna have to go check my dollar tree to see if they have some.
    Such a cleaver idea

  17. I've heard that if you go to your local liquor stores & ask, they'll give you their old wine crates for free. I haven't tried it myself, but a friend of mine did & they were nice & sturdy wood & a good size, but not too big, perfect for craft supplies. They had tons of crafty potential for decorating. If you have any future storage ideas, it might be worth looking into. :)

  18. Love this idea, Karen. Pinning!

    Wildly Original link party is open.

  19. New here and you have inspired to organize my pantry and sewing rooms.
    Quick question, how do you attach the basket to the wall? I don't see any nails?

    1. Hi Yannah,
      I'm replying here, because there wasn't an email address attached to your google plus.
      There is a tiny nail in the wall and the basket is hanging from the small loop in the handle.
      Thanks for stopping by!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment...I just love hearing from you!
