You never know when a ball of twine or fishing line is going to come in handy, so it's a good idea to keep some lying around the house. So why not store some in your craft closet for jewelry making or other projects? While you're at it, gather up a variety of yarns, threads, ribbons and anything else you can tie a knot in. You'll be hard pressed to find a project that won't require one or more of these items. Be sure to store them in a manner that won't let them get all tangled, though. What a nightmare that would be to clean up!
