4. Thread Shelf Organizer

This is a great way to organize your thread and keep them from getting tangled up. You can even make your own custom made shelf like in the image below or buy one from the store. To stay even more tidy organize your thread by color coordination so that it is easy to compare thread shades from one another when deciding what thread will match your fabrics.
