Default Storage of CTMH My Acrylix

What does everybody use to store your CTMH My Acrylix sets? I only have a couple of sets right now but I'm getting ready to order several sets over the next month. So I was wondering what was the best way to store them. Do you use the storage box in their catty or something else? TIA.

I went to walmart and they have a Mini Crate in the plastic container section. They are .97 each and either clear or white. They are the perfect size for the envelopes that the CTMH come in. They stick out of the crate just a bit but that's okay with me. Joann's has the same little crate for 2.99...unreal.

We sell a nice storage box which will hold about 10 sets but since I already use large plastic pull out bins for my stamps they happen to fit nicely in there, so I use those.
btw you should keep them in the envelopes they come in, it will help protect them from dust and light.

This is what a lot of my customers use - it is a very easy way to store them. The Dollar Store in my area carries them too.

CTMH does carry a storage box too, but its hard to beat a buck

I used my hostess benefits to get the CTMH storage box. BTW, it also holds 9 bottles of Prima flowers (Got Flowers style bottle-milk bottle style).

I use silver wire baskets I found at Target in the bathroom accessories isle. They have handles which are great for transporting but they do fold down out of sight when sitting on my desk. I think they retail for aroud $5. I can fit 20 CTMH stamp sets with envelopes in one basket, got to love that.

Hope this helps.
