Default Another Distress Ink Storage Question

This is for the collector's that have both the DI mini's & full size DI's (Not Oxides). How are you storing them together? Could you share some of your storage ideas?

DeeAnn, I use The Container Store’s Pure boxes for minis. They stack without lids but lids can be purchased. The photo shows two large shallow boxes and one medium shallow on top. Divided sections are a little annoying for me (for markers too).

When I didn’t have many DIs or went to a class I used. Totally Tiffany’s Edna Buddy Bag, which holds 12 or 15 (?) full sized.

Full sized Oxides are in Organize More’s unit, which can be hung or sit on table. (Regular Distress are the same size.) W shaped cardboard pieces they provide (or you can make) inserted to keep pads from sliding back too far.  (The top of the furniture is always covered with stamp bins and other stashy stuff, just taken off to add a plexiglass sheet.)

bjeans- That helps a bit. I want to keep my DI's all together. Decided not to collect Oxides at this time. I don't think they fit where I am art wise. Definitely need something for my full size regular DI & mini's that they can be all together in some cohesive manner.

Right - I showed Oxide storage since they're the same size as regular Distress. BTW, a smaller Pure box on top of a larger one slides easily. I have some stacked in another drawer to hold other supplies.

Mixing two different sizes is the challenge. The shallow Pure boxes can hold minis and full size pads, and two pads can stack on top of each other. Or a bunch of Pure boxes can be stacked as high as you want. Maybe plastic rolling drawers would work better. Knowing if you'd prefer the inks movable, easily grabbable, on a shelf, table, etc. might give more targeted suggestions.
