I don't want to put racks on the wall. Does anyone have a good idea how to store them so you can actually see what you have?

Watching this. All of my punches are in a very large plastic storage bin, so I have to rummage through to find the right one. At least I know where they are!

How about some of those food can riser thingies that are made for pantries?

The over the door hanging shoe organizer with the clear plastic pouches is the best idea I have seen.

Another vote for drawers. It's all really a matter of personal preference. I like to see what I have, but not have to see it all the time, kwim? Right now the few MS punches I have are in this (that I got for free when the store I worked in was closing) since I can't afford an Alex just yet.

I've been giving thought to this idea since it wouldn't require permanent wall fixtures & I have a deep window with impenetreble sides (I still haven't figured out if they're made of steel, concrete, or what!).

I've been a dilettante, but I'm thinking of dabbling in something else.

I would love some ideas for storing mine. Right now I have mine in Sterilite shoebox size drawers...but the ones I use most I have in a basket...either way I am rummaging. I need things out and accessible or I will never use them.

I don't want want stuff all over the walls. Mine are in my huge desk drawers. I sit very close to them so it's a breeze to reach for them.

Well, a pea named Fleur-de-Lisa has the most awesome collection of Martha Stewart punches, and although she stores many on rails on the wall, she also uses risers on shelves,a s someone has already suggested. Here is a link to her blog post about her punch storage. (Be prepared to drool over her collection, LOL!)

Thanks for the suggestions. I think the risers for the shelf looks promising.
