Default How are you storing your Dew Drop ink pads?

Does anyone have an efficient way to store Dew Drop ink pads?
Mine are just tossed in a drawer in no particular order. It would be nice if they were alphabetical so I could easily find what I want.
I know that the mini Distress ink cubes have a metal tin for storage , but the tear drop shape of the Dew Drops won't fit compactly in those .
Thanks
Barbara

Will they fit in a clamshell? You could see them all at a glance that way, too...

Mine are in an embroidery floss box. It happens to be one with fixed walls and each compartment is the perfect size for a dew drop. (Well, except for that one compartment that is always two compartments long.) They fit two deep (the long one fits four but they jostle a bit), which isn't ideal but I didn't want two boxes. LMK if you would like a photo.

Barbara, I asked this back on 10-6-15 in the Mission: Organization thread and got this answer and it has worked out very well for me. Darice 1157-11 No Spill Organizer 13.7-Inch-by-8.6-Inch-by-1.37-Inch. I got mine from Amazon. It is very large but the Dew Drops fit perfectly.

Thanks for the ideas !! The clam shell idea would work well, but I don't have any that are not being used for SU stamps. I settled on the organizer boxes that Diane is using.

After I consolidated and organized all my stamps, dies and ink refill bottles I am on a mission to consolidate and organize all the other things too.
I unloaded all the punches I have not used in a long time . They went to the GoodWill
I only kept the punches I have used in the past 6 months. All the punches were useful when I had very few dies , but now I rarely use them . If I don't have a die that will work I have my Silhouette Cameo to cut one .
I am determined to tame this paper craft tiger ! .

I have my dew drops, SU spots and other small ink pads stored in large unused SU clamshells. I took all my background stamps out of the clamshells and store them standing on the side (with name on the wood) in a large rectangular tote. I also use a couple of the clamshells to store some odd stamps.

Barbara, the idea for the Darice container was given to me by "thecraftystitcher" when I asked for suggestions in October. We both have her to thank!

I use the Darice No Spill organizer as well. I picked mine up at my local Walmart. It also fits the Ranger Distress Ink Minis and Colorbok inks... I have one box for each...

I use Stampin Up wood mount cases, they work wonderfully. I can fit, snugly, a full color set of 12 in a case.

I just transferred all my mini inkpads, perfect pearls and my magicals into the clear plastic pencil boxes you can get at Dollar Tree. They really helped me consolidate my stuff. They are pretty sturdy, stack really well and at only
8L x 4 1/2D x 2 1/4H they have a small footprint.
Inside each one I was able to fit
24 Dewdrops
33 Mini distress pads
29 Pearfect Pearls
30 Magical Micas
