I've been storing my craft paints in a small plastic tub under my scrapbooking table. I get frustrated digging thru them never able to find the colors I am looking for. How do other peas store craft paints?

Will I ever get to Buckethead?!

Mine are in a 3 drawer sterilite cart in my closet. I have a handful of colors I use often in a little crate in my crafty bookcase.

One of the things I do to make it easy to find paint colors is to put some paint on white cardstock. Once it dries, I cut a circle to fit on the bottle cap and glue it to the top. This way I don't have to pull out all the paints to locate a particular color. It is time consuming initially, but saves me frustration in the long run.

Or you could store them upside down if you need to see the color.
