thanks! (photos would be great!)
Made 5000, now what?
|Posted: 8/9/2011 6:08:54 PM|I found some milk crate type of containers at WM last year just after the college stuff had been put out. It was after school had started and they were starting to clear stuff out. There were three in a pack. One was just large enough for my 12X12 pads to fit in. One was perfect for 8X8. Since I don't have that many 8X8 pads(3-4) I filled up the rest of the crate with my 6X6 pads.
That is working for now, but I have my eye on some more 8X8 pads and most likely will be adding some 6X6 pads...

WM currently has small milk crate-like plastic bins like those Renee mentioned, in several colors. Except they are individually priced. I think those would work.
Also... how about a basket? M's has differents sizes on sale all the time.
How about standing up in a cardboard photo box (with no lid). You could decorate it.

Newest 6x6 Storage
Hobby Lobby Unit (see 3rd and 4th photos)
My Oldest Unit (I no longer use this; however, it is EASY to find one of these at garage sales thus a cheap option).
I hope this helps.

I need some storage ideas for my 8x8 and 6x6 that I've had my eye on. Thanks for the thread OP, and the photos ladies! Great ideas.

I have mine in Magazine holders which are the same size as cropper hopper paper holders but have the front cut down on them. I also store 8.5 x 11 papers in them. so they are stored in the same location as all paper which reminds me to use them

I store my 6x6 and mat stacks in a photo storage box, and then I can just flip through them when I want something.

I have mine in a metal wire bathroom basket from Ikea.
I love it that way as I can grab the basket and search through on my craft table.

I use square baskets for stuff like this, well actually the one with my 6x6 and 8x8 pads is a rectangle. I look for them all the time at M's and J's in the clearance section. If I don't like the color, I spray paint them. I store them spine up with the name written on it so I can see and it makes them easy to flip through as well.

I have some plastic shoe containers from Home Depot. Each one fits two rows of pads very nicely.
The containers were less than a dollar each.
