Every home, garage or workshop has a spool of string or twine, which is usually a tangled mess. Here’s how to keep string neatly organized and ready for use: Take an empty bulk CD or DVD container and drill a small diameter hole in the center of the lid. Then, screw the baseplate of the container to the underside of a shelf, table or workbench. Feed the end of the string through the hole of the lid, drop the spool of string into the lid, and then twist the lid onto the baseplate. Now, whenever you need some string, just pull out as much as you need and snip it with scissors.
