Default Studio G & $1 stamps

How do you store these and how do you keep track of the ones you have? Thanks,

I got a bunch of plastic sheets at Walmart.com. They are made to hold trading cards and have about 9 pockets on each sheet. I have my small $1 stamps in them, and in a 3 ring binder.

I don't have them in any particular order, and I just look through the pages to find what I want to use.

This won't help much, but i have them in an old printers tray. They were popular about 20 years ago and people collected miniature country decor items and filled printers boxes with these miniatures. I had it in a pile for the second hand store and it thought it would be great to hold my $1.00 stamps. Most of them are displayed in that. Looks cute because most of them have colored, cute labels!

My fall/Halloween stamps are in a tin box from Stampin' Up. So are my Christmas $1.00 stamps.

I use this system too. A few years ago, I found them at a garage sale where they sold them for a penny each. I took all 300+.....$3!!!!!

I use them with my wood-mounted single stamps that I unmounted and put on EZ mount.

I have them intermingled with all of my other stamps (bare rubber and photopolymer and acrylic and silicone and whatever else comes down the pike) organized by theme and style on laminated cardstock in 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" page protectors in binders. I keep the carrier sheets and stick them on copy paper and those go into my index binder, which is alphabetical by manufacturer. I got annoyed with them falling out of the trading card pages all the time, and found that they took up too much space that way, anyway (I'm all about consolidation).

I actually have a long basket that fits in the drawer of the 4 cubes from Michaels. They fit really well in these baskets probably from the dollar store.

I use an old wooden cutlery tray. I have made index cards, so I can find them easily.
This works for me and doesn't take up heaps of space.

I have all of the clear $1 stamps stored in a binder in the baseball card sleeves. They are filed according to theme/ holiday/ season

My wood-mounted stamps are stored 2 ways. All the Christmas (because I have so many) are in a box just for them. The rest are in drawers by theme/ season in an old entertainment center we revamped.

Although I've changed the organization of the entertainment center since these pics were posted, here's what the unit looks like:

I now store all of my paper packs in the center where the computer monitor is shown. I'll be posting new pics soon.
