I'd like to say this idea is all mine, although I DID already have the box, although there were photos in it.  I saw this idea in a quilting magazine.  The person used an individual box to store her hand sewing needles.  I have many drawers to store things, and every time I need something, I have to go through all of them to figure out which drawer I decided to store something.  Or in this case, many of the things that I am storing in these boxes are items that were kept in the top drawer of my sewing table.  The one that I pull out and keep the ironing pad mentioned in the previous post.
So when I saw that idea, I expanded on it and got out this box and got to work.  I got this box at JoAnns.  It's intended purpose is to store photos, and I found it in the scrapbooking department.
This is the whole case with the lid closed.
When the lid is opened, you can see the individual cases
I took the cases out so that you can see what I decided to keep in them. I still have one left, which I'm still thinking about.

These boxes contain all of the things that I'm always digging to find. They are now in one place, and I can go right to them to get what I need. Maybe the last box will contain a small sewing kit to grab when I want to slap on a binding or a button. I am always scrambling to get everything together when I need to do something like that.

Hopefully, these little things that pop into my head will help you out.

Yes, I'm aware that I have way more little scissors than I need.. along with everything else. Now that I have them all together in one place, I can see it.

I decided to make the last box a small sewing kit. With needle case, thimble, thread and scissors. I can grab this case when I need to sew on a button or a binding.

That is just way too organized, Teri.
