CB Storage Challenges Solved !

I bashfully admit that I am called the CHIPBOARD QUEEN by my scrap buddies so I have found a solution for my chipboard alphas in an unlikely place. I bought a plastic stanley tool box thingy at Lowe's. It is hard to describe but I will give it a try.... imagine a big plastic case with a handle on top and two fold out cases on each side. Each side of the case opens up to reveal a bunch of deep bins perfect for storing my cb alphas by letter...half in one side, half on the other side. In the center where the handle is there are 3 pull out bins on each side that are perfect for my smaller shapes of plain chipboard. This works great for my alphas and is perfect to store in my room and also take to a crop. Plus it was only $20 ! I love cheap, functional storage.

My biggest organizational challenge is the very large chipboard pieces from diff manufacturers. Those I have stored in the 2.5 gallon size ziplock bags and labeled with mfg name. Then stored in a large basket. Works okay but I would like to find a better solution. Let me know if you have any ideas for larger chipboard storage.

You could store the big pieces in a 12x12 album. :D
