$ Shop Find

Happy October 1st!! It was 25C today which certainly isn't the norm for here but I'll take more of them.

I had errands to run, one of which was a visit to the local Dollarama, I found a very simple ice cube tray with a snap on lid. It holds most of my metal bobbins. I will be getting another one tomorrow.

    1. Thanks, Jo. I bought two more this morning. One for the embroidery machines that are housed downstairs and the other for the Husqvarna.

  2. I have never seen a cube tray with a lid. I will be on the hunt now and grab one or 10 up! My husband laughs at love of plastic containers and drawers. I MUST be organized, lol.

    1. This was the first time I saw them with lids. Bought one to determine if the bobbins would fit. Went back this am an had two more.

  3. Now THAT is an inspired idea!!! We actually use a couple of those in our freezer but I never would have thought of this purpose.

  4. I try to think outside the box (sometimes)! I have never been pleased with the bobbin cases that are on the market. Maybe if I used bobbins occasionally it wouldn't matter. But I'm always changing bobbins in the embroidery machines when I make my shimmer ornaments and I like to get them out quickly. I have decided that three to a cube is enough. Four makes it a little difficult to get out in a hurry.

  5. Thank you for sharing your great idea. I love an affordable alternative. My Grandma always looked at things with "different eyes".
