    $44 is ridiculous. Image how much peg board and hooks you could buy for half of that and hang everything in an organized manner.

    Something like this

      My ruler holder is a lid holder designed for kettle lids. It sits on the floor right next to my cutting table where I easily can reach the ruler I want. My smaller rulers/templates are in a smaller lid holder that is on a surface next to the table within easy reach. They both were very inexpensive. I have no wall space for peg boards. I may have purchased at least one of these at Target. It's been a long time ago since I bought them.

        I'd be concerned about the width. It's less tha. 36" of hanging space with 6 hooks. If you have a large squaring up ruler, you won't have a lot of space left for other rulers or templates. I have a covered board with nails for the hooks. I have less than $44 tied up in both boards I have hanging in my sewing room.

          I have my rulers hanging from command hooks on the underside of my cutting table. They are not taking up extra space but are easy to reach. I used the command hooks with the swivel hooks. I tied a short ribbon through the hole on the rulers to hang them. Didn’t cost much at all.

            That's just flat out crazy. My rulers are stored like Joy's. In a wooden pot lid holder, $2 at Value Village. It doesn't hold all my rulers but about 8 of my ones used most often. I hate to tell you how many other rulers I have that I never use!

              I actually looked at that hanger this morning. I have number of larger rulers I wanted to hang. Maybe 3 rulers would fit. Instead I hung all my large rulers with picture hangers on an unused wall space on the closet.

                I agree with the others, too expensive. Pegboard would do the job for less and the pot lid holder sounds like a great solution. I’ve also seen some who use those vertical desk organizers.

                  My husband made this from a scrap and I don't think I have 3$ in it. I had one that sat on my cutting table and I kept knocking it off and it took up too much room.

                    My ruler holder is a small letter holder. Easy to grab just the one I want every time. I love it.

                      I use that same one for my small rulers that I use all the time. I love it. Keeps the current pattern handy too. And it's pretty.

                        It doesn't look like it will hold many rulers but might keep the favorite ones handy.

                        There isn't much wall space in my sewing room. I have specialty rulers in a zipper pocket made for notebooks. Right now there are 16 pockets stored in a wire mesh magazine organizer. The organizer is 5 inches deep and takes little space.

                        A plastic kitchen drawer organizer (16" wide) holds 4 or 5 rulers used every day. It sits on the cutting table for easy use. Long cutting rulers are stored on command hooks above the ironing table.

                          Something like this if you have wall space, or it could hang off the end of the cutting table

                              I use the wall for most of my rulers with simple hooks. The smaller ones are on a pull out shelf under my machine. I don't want to put out a lot for their storage, when I can spend it on fabric.
