Thanks for all of your replies. Looks like I will be on the lookout for some paper storage this weekend.
And maybe I'll just keep the cardstock as is without pre-cutting it. I know that I will only be using the cardstock for making Christmas cards (that's all I do now) so we'll see how it works out.
Life is NOT a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely BUT...to skid in sideways, chocolate in hand and screaming WOOHOO-WHAT A RIDE!
