I need more boxes as I bought 25 packages of elastic and 75 tread things a few weeks ago and well they don't fit. Have a carton box full with ribbons too, oh well will be used someday.

The white set of drawer are pretty cheap for what they are.. I think it was about 75-80 pounds.. Ikea.. called Alex drawers.. I ended up getting the smaller one too to go in a gap.. to hold the printer ( though its got a machine on it there!).. that holds all the stationary, post office recorded labels and special delivery bags/labels.. three sizes of mailing bags, printer paper, stickers etc.. I now use the bigger set of alex drawers as my packing station, so there is a few seems of tissue paper on it, for wrapping the parcels up.

Can you tell I like organisation LOL

Ems, go away! It's just not fair that you have such a pretty (and organised) sewing room. Humph!

Re Really Useful Boxes, Argos do some of them too. We got one of those tiny chest of drawers style ones in there.

I'd suggest a toolbox with a lift out bit. The lift out bits are usually sectioned and then there's plenty of space underneath for larger bits like scissors. Plus some tool boxes you can fit a padlock to keep little hands out. Hth x
