I have been on a mission to find the best way to organize many stamp sets so
I will know what I have since--if you see it you will use it!
I tried boxes, totes, and shelves.
None of these worked since I had to shift through all of the sets to
find the ones that I wanted.
I finally decided to try pull out drawer sets.
I found inexpensive 10 drawer sets on rollers at Sam's,
but Walmart and other big box stores probably have the same thing.
This is a great time of year to find organizing supplies
with school and college products displayed.
I dumped all of my sets onto the floor of the craft room
and sorted, sorted, sorted. I put all of like sets together such as
Birthday, Holiday, Thankyou, Flower, etc.
I then decided to break apart sets to put like stamps together.
I now have one drawer of all "Happy Birthday" and "Thank You" stamps.
Just open the drawer and decide which stamp to use!
CAUTION--wood stamps can be heavy, so be careful not to overfill the drawers--it can break down the wheels and the drawers. I don't plan to move mine around, so it won't stress the wheels.
I also kept a few sets together that are only used once a year such
as Graduation sets. I put those on a shelf, along with the clear sets that are
stored in DVD cases.
I liked how this turned out so much that I got a set of drawers for stamp pads and
