I use fish bowls, like some people use trays for keeping like with like, neatly, and on hand (and no I have never had a fish). For storing ribbons, beads, fabric and anything else I can think of. They are great for things like hair accessories in a child’s bedroom as they are pretty and easy to find or sunglasses by the front door, well the list can go on.

Mardi Gras Beads, Ribbon, Leaves waiting to be used
Christmas Gift Wrap, Fabric Pieces
