I am accumulating a great deal of Thickers... So I am asking, how do you store them?

Right now I have mine on a large Clip-It-Up, with all my other alpha stickers too. I sectioned them by color. I don't love this system, but I already had the Clip-It-Up (previously used for embellishment storage) so i thought I would give it a try.

In baskets (yes - that's plural!) lying on their sides. Makes it super easy to flip through.

I have an old wire over-the-door towel rack that I use the M's brand clip-it-up clips to hang my thickers on

I have mine standing up in a basket. They are super easy to flip through. I need to get another basket though - my "overflow" Thickers are currently in a drawer.

Mine are also stored side-ways in a...let's see, I guess you would call it a white leather serving tray with handles and high sides. It was a gift from a client this past Christmas, filled with snacks. I absolutely love it. I will post a picture when I get home.

I have most of my letter stickers arranged by colour in a small wooden trunk. I cut dividers out of foam core to help support each section and make it easier to find the color I am looking for.

For my current favourite fonts and favourite colours, I have several dozen sets of letter stickers laying on their sides in old sewing machine drawers. They fit the full length of a package of Thickers, including the top part of the packaging, just perfectly.

I jumped on the Thickers hoarding bandwagon and just got a big order from Two Peas today.

Just about everything I got was on sale!

here's a link: http://www.kissandtellscrapbooking.com/my_weblog/2013/03/what-this-pea-ordered.html

_____

I'm thinking I'm going to have to do a purge in my scrapbook room & some reorganizing for all these Thickers so I'll be watching this thead!

They are in one of the four drawer cubes from M's, in rainbow order. They fit almost perfectly and I can get a lot of packs in one drawer.

I just went and counted and You can fit 42-45 or so in a drawer, depending on how tightly you want them in there. I have 2 1/2 drawers full....I don't think I need to buy any new thickers for a while

In 3-ring binders by color. I love it especially with the thickers that fall off so it catches them. Others use baskets, think bread baskets.

I've got mine on the bottom of my Clip-It-Up by color, but I'm running out of room and want a lazier solution for when I don't feel like wrestling them back into their plastic. I might try the binder or basket thing.

Scattered across my desk

They should be in the bin on my desk not all over my desk. Or maybe they are supposed to be in my sticker binder?

Who in the world puts away their scrap supplies??

In a drawer, on their side. Neutrals first, then rainbow color, finally some silver and Kaiser gem letters that I hardly ever use.

In a milk crate. Not one from Target, a true milk crate. I've had it since college (20+ years ago) and I have no idea where it came from.

Two rows of Thickers fit perfectly. I have no idea how many I have in there but the crate is about full.

I have my Thickers, along with my other letter stickers, stored by color in a couple of those fabric bins from T. Right now, they're sitting on the floor , but hope to make room on my shelving for them. Maria

I have mine in a legal size file folder in a file cabinet. The Pinterest idea looks more promising though. Gonna check out the office supply stores.

if I had a scrap room, the clip it up would definitly be a great way, but since I pretty much have just a corner of our living room, I am extremely limited in space.

I got a bathroom storage basket at Marshall's I have mine in there, they stand up and are easy to go through - this storage is just for the unopened ones though.

The packs that are in use are kept in a 3 inch binder with 8.5 x 11 page protectors, when taken out of their packages, they fit perfectly length-wise in these protectors, there is room on the sides but they don't really move around. I find it easy to flip through them this way. I keep all my alpha sets that are in use (not just thickets) in this binder.

I have a basket from Ms. They actually lay down on their side perfectly... well, perfectly until I had to many

So, now they stand up in the basket in 2 rows, because I have a desperate need to own every thicker in the whole wide world

I use the 6.5x13 clear plastic Itso bins from Target. They fit Thickers perfectly. I can get 2 in a cube in my Expedit. It is really easy to slide them out for use. I have mine divided black & white and the other bin by colors.

Right there in the center, in that turquoise bin in the tall space, are my thickers and taller sheets of letter stickers. In the white box to the left are smaller sets of alpha stickers.
