Default Storage ideas...help!

I have (really a lot) of collections of paper and coordinating embellishments. For example, 10 sheets of 12x12 paper and anywhere from 4+ packs of different embellies that go with the paper. I am looking for an inexpensive way to store these items together......Just not sure the best way to do this. Any ideas? I am looking to store probably about 50 collections.

If you didn't want to spend the money for drawers or cases like these: Scrapbooking/HOBBY/IRISUSA@2 page , my thought would be to get large (2 gallon) Ziploc-type bags and put each collection in its own bag, then file them all in a drawer or basket or box or similar. Pizza boxes would be another option, if you could find a source.

I'd go with ziplocks in milk crates. If you have difficulty finding milk crates now, the stores should be full of them around May or so (when they start stocking all the back to school stuff.) 50 pizza boxes would take up a lot of space.

That's true, but you could probably fit three or four collections in each box

Very true. They will also stack nicely, more than milk crates will.
