Default Envelope Storage

I just got a bunch of the Green Grocer envelopes and I have tons of different SU envelopes but I don't know how to store them. Right now they are stacked in a drawer and it's not working well LOL They're getting pushed around and damaged, what I need is always on the bottom, etc.

Does anyone have a clever way of storing their envelopes?

TIA!

Not clever at all but I keep mine standing up in a photo storage box. Sorted first by size, small ones in front, big ones in the back, and then by color.

I do the same (photo boxes) and it works well for me.

Mine isn't a photo box but the same concept - one of those $1 totes from the grocery store (not like a milk carton - no holes.) Sorted by color.

They look clean and hide everything neatly!

Maybe you can alter one of those little lunch box tins to store your envelopes. They come in different sizes, so you could have a tin for your different sizes. -- I'm always looking for stuff to alter! lol

Nothing special - on edge in a drawer so nothing's on the bottom.

alright you photo box people what about the larger size?? I too have a huge collection of envies and I currently keep them in $ store special basket on their edge some what sorted by size and shape...I also have other envies that are for cards that I have purchased still in the orginal box as I just don't know what to do with them, I also make some envies as well but that is per card basis as that really would just take up space that I just don't have...I create in a really small space...you would be amazed...I think I will post pics in my gallery tomorrow...but with that said I am all ears and eyes if anyone has some suggestions about storage on envies...the reason for my mass collection is that I am a swapper, I swap around the world not just on SCS but also on yahoo with pen pal groups making fbs, decos, slams, and such... which is great fun...but enough of my jabbering...i think I am just really tired...
