Default Sterilite Mini Milk Crate

Hi!

I'm trying to get my craft room organized.

I had a mini milk crate that was storing some of my CTMH stamp sets but now my collection has grown larger. So I'm needing another but can't find one.

I was wondering if y'all had experienced this and what your solution was?

Thank you

I ended up buying these:

Close To My Heart

I also store my Imopression Obsession background stamps in them.

I was using open baskets from Michaels, etc to store them but I wanted something I could stack.

Hi Mary! This has been a battle of mine too! I also unmounted my SU wooden stamps as well and store them in the CTMH envelopes. Needless to say I have a ton to store now! I have a couple different things that I use to store and go back & forth with them! Currently I am using the photo storage boxes in. You can actually store quite a few sets in them. I think like 20+ in each one! How many can you store in the mini milk crates? I know at one time I had 1 or 2 of them but think I gave them away or they are put away some where!! LOl Usually around back to school time you can find them at Walmart. In the past I have used a large (brown) storage thingie from Target. They are foldable when not in use. This would also hold a lot to! I could fit 2 side by side with a tad of over lapping.

HTH!! Curious to see your response on the mini crates! Good luck and let me know what you come up with!

Connie

Have you checked the dollar stores? I've got all my CTMH stamps stored in the mini milk carton crates, too, and it seems like I've seen them at dollar stores.

Believe I use the same storage pieces as original poster. When I need another, I can find them in the school/office supplies at WalMart, tho not necessarily in a consistent color.

Default Mini milk crates

Can anyone please tell me about how many CTMH stamps sets will fit in these little crates? Just looked through my stash and I must have gotten rid of them, UGH!! I only has about 2 anyways! I have about 150+ sets and I can't seem to find anything I like to keep them stored in!

Any suggestions/ideas would sure be appreciated!

TIA,
Connie

I use mine to store stamp PADS,not stamp SETS. Nearly all of mine are SU; each mini-crate, on its side, will hold 20 stamp pads.
