After you look at this picture and the next few, hopefully this will make more sense of the picture I am showing....
I have all colors of SU! 8.5 x 11 card stock stored in two haning file totes. My DH made me a holder/roller so I can store it under the cabinet and roll it out when I need it. It works perfect! So once I am seated, it rolls out behind me and all I have to do is turn around in my chair and grab what I need.
Also, to explain the 'filing system' each color has a tab stating the color and those are in ABC order with the exception with the confetti white, whisper white, etc those are in the front. The tabbed (or labeled) hanging file folder has a manilla folder that holds only full sheets of the card stock. Then the hanging file folder just in the front of that one also has a manilla folder and that one holds all scraps of that color, anything less than a full sheet. This system has worked wonderful for me and it is sooo easy and fast to find just the piece I need without wasting a new piece! I will post a close up of just the paper system too, incase you are a total visual person like I am!
Thanks for looking!

Wow! Thanks for all the positive comments!
I purchased the containers from Office Max. They come with lids, but I don't need those *smiles*
They measure 23" long---
My DH just cut a board to match the size and then bolted the board to two 'milk crates' and then mounted the milk crates to a 'file caddy' (a file catty is intended to use to make your letter or legal file cabinets more mobile on wheels.) I purchased the file catty from OfficeMax.com
The labels are made from the Smead Viewables file system. I just love these labels and use them in my home office too!!
Thanks again for looking~

when I grow up I want to have your play room, I love how you have the long work table on either side of you. Looks so great! I usually can only find about 10 inches square to stamp on..lol! Never enough space, that's for sure!
