For quite some time, I have been wanting to organise my wool stash, but have been in a quandary as to whether I should purchase a storage unit or just simple containers of some sort. It was important to me to be able to see the colours easily and for the wool to be protected from dust and hungry moths, so after some deliberation, I settled on containers. Finding a suitable size was the next challenge.
Then today while hubby and I were doing the grocery shopping, the answer came right out of the blue! Just as we turned the corner from the pet food aisle, right there before our li'l ol' eyes, was a shelf full of Systema containers in different sizes, all on half price special. I found three in a size that was perfect, but needed more . . . we looked around the store to see if there were any, but alas, it appeared the large sizes had sold very quickly.
That was until we hit the checkout . . . I could hardly believe my luck, sitting on top of the cash register was another Systema box just in the right size . . . needless to say I grabbed it. :)
I couldn't wait to sort my wool out into colours and most of my current stash fitted in the boxes nicely, except for my browns, yellows, creams and whites. So before I can complete the task I set out to do, I need to find at the very least, one more box.
