Default 6X6 and 8X8 paper storage

Has anyone found containers that match each other and are sized well for holding 6x6 and 8x8 paper?

I use an InterDesign bin for my 6x6's but don't have any 8x8's. But I found this, which looked promising. That said, I didn't think photo boxes could hold something 8" wide: Stamping A Latte: MFT Creative Chat - Patterned Paper Organization!

Maybe it will spark an idea. I'd probably end up wandering through The Container Store and other stores with paper in hand to see what boxes would work.

This size of this IKEA box might work for both and comes in a few colors/patterns: FJÄLLA Box with lid - light green/spotted, 8 ¾x10 ¼x6 ¼ " - IKEA

I use wicker baskets that I find very reasonably priced at Good Will or other thrift stores. They are 6" wide and about 18" long. There are always so many to pick from I'm sure they would have something around 8" wide for those papers you have.

I use mini crates from Staples and The Dollar Tree...They are perfect for 6x6 and 8x8pads and paper...



1st is 6x6in black crates and 2nd on 3rd shelf is 8x8 in clear/white crates

I use 16" x 8" x 5" CabinetBinz that I buy with coupons at Bed, Bath &Beyond. They have handle holes in the short ends so they are easy to carry when needed. I also use them to store clear and cling stamps in pockets. I bought these because they are wide enough to put Dylusions and TH stamps in.

Thanks Karen -- Great minds think alike. I found some "locker bins" at the Dollar Tree that are just perfect. I like the tall sides -- keeps everything well contained.

PS: You have a lovely room!

So, while those locker bins worked great, they didn't fit well where I was hoping to put them to maximize the available space. Who knew that what I really needed to do was go buy some shoes?
