Cool stamp storage help

I am starting to get quite a few rubber stamps and plan to get more, I saw an idea I like for storing unmounted and cling stamps, in CD cases, but I don't know how to store mounted ones so I can find what I want easily and keep them in good shape.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Also, I am going to be using a very small bedroom as my sewing/stamp room, it also has a dresser with clothes for my granddaughter when she stays with us (I am using 2 drawers in that now)
Any suggestions on how to set up the room or store supplies that is not expensive?
Thanks
Donna

I wish I could take credit for this but this was an idea that was suggested to me on another board. Using the 4X6 photo storage plastic containers (hobby lobby and I think michaels too). They have double storage ones with two rows, the stamps go into the photo cases...and they do fit!!!! Catagorize them within the containers and label on the outside for ease of finding them. I have one big case, one smaller case and a couple of indidual cases full. I am LOVING this idea! All stamps stay clean and organized!!!!! Easy to find, easy to transport to crops too!!!! If I know I am doing Christmas: I grab the one or two photo cases that have christmas in them and go!!!! For my clear stamps and unmounted or cling stamps: I have those in binders. Works great!!!!

I found these slim scrapbook cases (by Iris) at J's that fit my wood-mounted rubber stamps perfectly. It's comes in a set of 3 with the pastic cabine. Since they're clear, I can see all my stamps. Since it comes with the plastic cabinet, I just set up my own tower of stamps. They are pretty pricey at J's (I think it's over $40 now), but I use my coupons. They are hard to transport because the latches come open, but I bought some tote board rubber bands that are gigantic and they hold the cases closed really well.

Here's a link for the cases 3 Slim Case Scrapbook Table Chest SBC-3530 150687|IRIS U.S.A SHOP

I've also heard that people use clean pizza boxes and then stamp the image on the inside bottom of the box so you know where they go. I think I'd have to stamp on the outside top so I could see what was in there without having to open it. Plus I don't know how I'd store them.
