How do you store your kit? I love the cute brown paper bag that it comes in, but it's just not very practical for storing purposes. I also have a sub to Scraptastic, which shops everything in those big ziplock bags - this makes it very easy to stand them up in my cabinet. I guess I could do that with the brown paper bag, but I do like to be able to see what's in the bag without emptying its contents. So please tell me, how do you store your CT kits? TIA!

This is my first month with the CT subs. I spread all of my kit on a table and keep staring at it. I have slowly used and put away small parts of my kit.

I dont think this is the best way and next month I am going to see if I use it better by putting it all in a 2 gallon ziplock bag.

I stopped storing mine and started putting everything in my stash.

I use 13 x 15 ziploc bags to store my kits and collections. The only thing I pull out is washi tape which goes into my stash after I stick a piece to the bag to remind me which rolls go with which kits.

What a GREAT idea! I'm totally going to do that.

To answer your question OP - I bought the crop bags from SC, but you can get 2 gallon zip lock bags that will do the same thing for a lot less money. I don't know that I've seen them at the grocery store but I'm sure you can get them at Walmart or Target.

I probably won't be much help because I separate everything from my kits right when I receive them and put them away in their respective stashes...

Thanks for the suggestions. I went out to Walmart today and bought the 2.5 gallon sized bags. They may be too nig, but I didn't have the energy to go anywhere else. Lol. I love the idea of putting a piece of washi on the bag, I'm totally stealing it
