How do you store those page kits and he ziploc bags? I use to store my collections in cropper hoppers. But now I want them in these bags - but have no idea how I store these.

I put the bags into the Cropper Hoppers. They fit ok and stand up nicely.

I use the bags all the time for work in progress. I then put them on bookshelf just cause I have so much stuff the papers won't get bent.

I'm currently storing mine in my 2 white drawer cubes I got from ms! Another idea I saw before would be to store them in a big basket or bin! Maybe on a pegboard if you have one or on a bookshelf all lined up together! I store my collection kits in either large ziplock bags or in plastic scrapbooking folders.. I wanted to move them out of the drawers so I'm having a hard time as well trying to figure a method out that works! Last thought.. If you have your own room or a free door you could get one of those over the door hat storage systems with the clips and just clip them all on the back of the door.. I hope that made sense lol or hang them on hangers in a closet!

They fit in the cropper hoppers? I thought the bags were like 14 in wide opposed to the 12in of the cropper hopper.

I'm thinking ill have to get some kind of bin/basket. I want to be able to rip through them when I want to use one. I was trying to avoid having to buy more storage stuff. And both of my bookshelves are much skinnier than 12 in so that won't work either - my paper will be hanging down too far

You can easily fold the edges over to fit into a cropper hopper, storage bin, etc. even though the bags are larger than 12x12.

I have a couple of wooden crates I bought at Hobby Lobby with coupons. I like them because I can flip through the bags easily. I also have a bin I bought at M's with another coupon. Again, this method makes it easy to flip through the bags and find what I'm looking for.

I have not heard or seen any zip locks that are larger than a gallon.
But then went and checked google and they have Big Bags L, XL, XXL but have no dimensions.
Are the Big Bags what you are using? If so what size? Can you get them at Walmart? TIA, melissa

I use 2 gallon bags. The only place I've been able to find them is at Dollar Tree, but not all of the Dollar Tree stores in my area have them. I think others have found them at Walmart.

I looked everywhere and finally randomly found them at my grocery store! I have seen them at both Winn Dixie and Publix.

ETA - I had given up and we moved, and I saw them when I was picking up something else. Just so it doesn't sound like I was dumb and never checked the grocery store.

I have them in a big basket in the corner of my studio

....well not ALL of them. Turns out I've made/bought WAY too many so about half are stuck in a halway closet until I can stashbust down enough to add them to the basket.

I have a bunch in a basket on my shelf. I also have some in a 12 x 12 plastic box with lid that I bought at Crafts 2000. They are easier to carry to crops when they are in the box.

i bought them from walmart - 12bags for $3 i think - we looked at all the dollar stores but couldnt find them - they are the hefty ones with the zipper closure.
Think I will try the milk crates.

Those ziplocks are how I store all my collections. I buy them at the dollar store and hang them by clothing hangers with the clips (for pants and skirts). My craft room is in the basement and I have a closet right next to my scrap space and store them in there.

I bought some of those milk crates at walmart today for $6. THEY WORK PERFECT. I bought one for my Super Sketch Club kits, and one for the page kits/collections that I store in the ziploc bags

I picked up a couple of magazine containers from Michael's they come in 3 sizes and the largest one usually prices at $14.99 (they go on clearance). Mine are black and white damask with polka dots. The bags fit perfectly.
