    HHHMMMM, well, I'm not better than you lol. My mini alpha's are in the little box they came in. But all my other ones are between two places; a plastic store bag and a small rubbermaid box. Maybe you could have several different smaller boxes. Then seperate them into themes: spring could be flowers and butterflies, alphabets, christmas. Hope that helps. I would like to see what other people do too.

    I store mine rubber side down, on a smooth flat surface. If I need to stack them, I lay a board down between them.

    I'm using Sterilite 12 x 12 three drawer units. They're great for all kinds of stuff.

    that reminded me I bought file folders to see if they would stick and then I can unmount some and store them in a binder. I'd have to org by season too.

    Still trying to figure out what to do with my scraps of paper! The only thing I orgnized today was my undie drawer! At least I can now find clean non-holy undies and socks

    I store mine in a set of mini plastic drawers.
    approx 3- 8 1/2 x11 size. Two sets of drawers are for the stamps and one set is for the ink pads. Works so far...I need to stop buying them!

    I changed my mounted to unmounted and I mounted the cling foam to the backs. They cling to special dividers that I keep in notebooks. I have 9 notebooks full, 6 of them are 4" wide, which I wish I hadn't used because they're kind of heavy to lift. I have them separated by theme, with the images on the opposite page, and I also have a separate notebook with just the images so that I can leaf through it and figure out what I want to use without having to lift the heavy binders.

    My mini alphabets I keep in CD cases in a case holder.

    I have only a few, but they're growing. Right now I have my ink pads in one clear storage and my stamps in another.

    I have my sorted by season too and in rubbermaid storage totes. But they aren't very accesible and have yet to use most of them. I am so addicted to the $1 Mikes and J's put out about every few months and buy just about all of them.
