Default Storing CTMH stamp sets

Other then the CTMH storage box is there something else anyone can recommend? I'm using some photo boxes right now which seem ok, but thought I would check with some of the organization guru's here!!

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

If you take them out of the plastic envelopes you'll have a lot more options. They fit in the four-drawer JetMax cubes that way, for example (at least, the A-C sets do - D and E sets are too big). I just kept the "foamie" thing in between each set so they wouldn't stick to each other...

I don't have them that way any more (I break up all of my sets and have them stored on cards in Iris photo keepers by category), but it worked for me for a long time!

I took my sets out of the envelopes and put them in page protectors (with other sets) in binders. I can see much more easily what I have now.

I put mine in CD cases. I just cut the acetate that they come on (with the image on it) to fit into a case. Some sets need two cases, but it works for me.

I like the envelopes that CTMH stamps come in and wish I could find somewhere to buy empty ones for my other brands!

I've re-purposed some low cardboard boxes to store my CTMH. A couple are from orders received from Barnes & Noble and one is a cardboard "crate" that held Cuties clementine oranges. The CTMH envelopes fit perfectly, standing up (in alphabetical order).

Close to My Heart actually sells the plastic envelopes in 2 or 3 different sizes, they're in the catalog.

Just thought you'd want to know!

I have my CTMH stamp sets in little crates I paid $1 from Walmart, they're a perfect fit! (They look like the old style milk crates)

Thank you! I guess I have not looked at the catalog closely. *I need an embarrassed smiley here* I appreciate that!

They're actually called Paper Organizers in the catalog, so that may be why your missed them. Here's the item number Z335.

The 6x6 sets fit perfectly in a plastic cd crate (they look like mini-milk crates and are usually $1 or less), and those crates then fit almost perfectly, 3 to a row, in one of those cheap storage shelves with the doors on front that you can get at Target or Walmart or Meijer.

Default storage ctmh

I use these great little baskets from target. Thery're only $2.99!!! The only downside is that they are not stackable. I have them lined up under my desk. (Mine are teal, but they have other colors)

I'm new so I can't post a url I guess... just go to target online and search baskets then click storgae and the lowest price range. I bought mine in store by the office supplies.

I use a 3 drawer Sterilite cart to store my CTMH sets in.

Default CTMH Stamp Storage

I know this is a super old thread, but can someone please tell me how many CTMH stamp sets fit in each drawer of the Sterilite 3-drawer narrow cart? Also, can you keep the sets in their envelopes and still fit in the drawers?

I too have a bunch of the $1 milk crate looking bins but I have moved and no longer have the shelf space for all of the crates, so I'm hoping a drawer solution will be a better idea for my current space challenge.

Thanks in advance for any info.

I no longer store them in my 3 drawer system, I've got them back into my crates! lol
(I simply downsized, no other reason) I want to say that each drawer held about 30 sets, but its been awhile, so I could be wrong.
